From Within is a reflection of my love of sea swimming and photography. Trying to bring these two passions together. Sea swimming gives me a deep sense of calm and relaxation.
Spending time in the sea with my camera affords me time to reflect and escape, for brief periods from the noise and pace of everyday life.
Shooting from the shore wasn’t enough I wanted to be in the water with the camera.
This series of photos was taken over many trips to the sea. I wanted to bring the viewer on a journey into the sea to experience the calm and tranquility of the ocean. To feel like you are floating on the waves with me. For some people they may get a sense of being in too deep and others out too far for comfort.
Always respect the sea. It can be kind on calm days and spit you out on angry days.
