Trying to catch a medium that’s in a constant state of flux would seem stressful in any situation, but photographer Warren Keelan works easily in a wetsuit amongst shattering waves on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, always seeking for the perfect shot. Whether working completely submerged or perched precariously on the cusp of a behemoth swell, he’s consistently able to get the right angle to highlight the monumental power of the always moving ocean.
Warren talks about his process: I’ve always had a fascination with nature, especially the ocean and its ever changing forms, and I am forced to capture and share what I feel are special and unique moments in the sea. I love the raw, inconstant nature of water in motion and the way sunlight brings it all to life, from both above and below the surface. For me, the challenge is building an image that hopefully tells a story or leaves an impression on the viewer.
