Please Meet , Jordy Maxwell

I'm a 27 year old electrician. Living in Perth, Western Australia. I live 45minutes from the beach, and usually conditions are not very good, so I have to force myself to be creative sometimes with what I shoot. I like shooting unsaturated, cropped, minimalist images. I like trying to find the art in an image and create a mood, and I think that reflects how I'm feeling at that point in my life.
I'm engulfed in the style of surfing. Single fins are my preferred choice to surf and to shoot. Something so elegant and graceful about capturing a single fin flowing down the line. I am addicted to style and the surf culture.
I have a van, with a bed in the back, and often find myself going down south of Western Australia, (Margies, yallingup, Denmark) with my dog and finding secluded places under the stars to spend the night. The rugged and raw beaches and coastline makes for some beautiful images.

I shoot in Perth and down south mostly and currently I'm located in Exmouth, North Western Australia, where there is a vast difference in colours and vibes.
