Tony Palmer

Surf & Ocean Photographer, located on Sydneys Northern Beaches, NSW Australia.

Since picking up my first DSLR camera, I have been learning and practicing the craft of photography, As a surfer, I'm drawn to creating imagery of surf, surfing, ocean and coastal subjects from either the land or ocean. I've grown up reading surfing magazines, which has been a source of inspiration and motivation to continually try, learn and refine.

Having spent a large part of my early life in and around motor sport, I also have a fondness for automotive photography.

I haven't stopped at still imagery, I also occasionally film and produce short surfing movies and edits and I am also part of the team that films for The Surfboard Guide.

I have also been assembling a body of work featuring fine art imagery of Freshwater Beach, in a different style to that of the abundant blue sky, blue ocean images.

So far over the last few years my imagery has been used by surf brands, magazines and media companies.

Most recently, I have had an image in the top 36 images in the Surfing Life Magazine 2021 Surf Photo Comp ( issue 357 see below third down from the top, far left)

In 2019 I spent the week capturing the WSL QS6000 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro, as part of the Coveredhub media team and I also shot at the WSL Narrabeen Classic in 2021.


I have also been featured on Pacific Longboarder Magazine Website for a short surfing film of Freshwater  

Select prints are available to buy, on the print store, and you can also hire me to create content for your brand, or capture your surfing session as high quality still images or as a movie.
