Surfing is not just a sport, surfing is life. Photographer Drew Doggett knows best, understanding first hand the sacrifices surfers have to make and the dedication it takes to make it through.
From the very beginning of his artistic career, Doggett showed interest in nature, especially landscapes that featured water. That is how he got the idea to start taking aerial photos of surfers. His series, Swell: Endless Blue, is much more than simple shots of the ocean. For Doggett, the ocean is a perfectly blended mix of shapes, textures, and colors.
“When I set out to create the series Swell: Endless Blue, I wanted to highlight the patterns and the relationship between surfers and waves more than anything else,” he explained. “While the ocean’s unpredictability may seem like its predominant behavior, when you spend time watching waves you begin to notice patterns and shapes that may have not been initially apparent.”
