Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Going Over The Falls

wave surf photographer photography underwater housing

Hi Everyone,

This is a self portrait of me just before I got sucked up by the wave and got thrown around like I was in a tumble dryer.   I really have a lot more respect for in water wave and surf photographers after experiencing what they have to go through.   I’m only swimming in small waves and surf, how do the guys in Hawaii do it?    Anyhow if some of you are wondering what I look like, here I am.   Though the lens has quite obviously distorted my face in all the wrong places.

Hope you guys have a good laugh at this photo.

    • Hi Merv,

      Thanks for that mate, but I think it would need heaps of photoshopping before going on a billboard. 😉

    • Hey Clint,

      I didn’t get anymore wave photographs. I did get some shots while I was down south, which I will publish shortly.
