Beach Life has been a labour of love over a period of almost three years photographing the beaches of Noosa and the northern Sunshine Coast. Noosa is typically portrayed in full rich colour, and that is perfectly understandable given its stunning colour palette, but as a counterpoint to that, I wanted to spend time representing the lifestyle and area in a more contemplative mood. Black and white, in my opinion is far more adept at adding texture or personal interpretations to any subject and the choice of shooting exclusively with a Lensbaby and Single Glass optic arguably lends the images a more surreal and dreamlike ambience.
Despite the many visitors to the area, there are still quiet spots a plenty, conveying the sense space and solitude that being outdoors gives is an important component to a great many images featured in the book.
