Happy Snapshot

I was on Stradbroke Island not long ago shooting an advertising project. Walking back to the car I saw these junior Surf Lifesavers walking on the beach on patrol. The colours of their uniforms and the perfect white sand of Stradbroke Island just punched me in the face! Luckily I was holding a medium format camera. I don’t even recall exposing I just lifted it, waited a second for them to walk into position on my frame and snapped! This shot really spells out summer in Australia for me. I wound up getting an honorable mention for it at the 2013 International Photography awards. Happy Dayz
