triangle Script

I always feel like I'm looking for something but I don't really know what it is. I can tell when I'm near it; and pretty sure I'll know when I find it; but until then, I'm going to just keep looking.

That’s crazy.

That’s Bronte Beach. We rockin Bronte Beach. Sunrise. That’s Sydney. That’s some big-ass waves. About to get a little morning run… and I don't know (if) this is just an Australian thing I guess, but that's a toaster right there on the ground. So… A-A-ron I need some help with this. So, so…. We don't need to talk about it. Just pick it up put in your pocket. We’ll go. Okay. We'll make some breakfast. I'm assuming that's the case - that everybody live outside in Australia.

This is gorgeous. Pretty rocks. oh wow so that's the Bronte pool right there. I guess so it's like right by the ocean - that's cool. Ocean water comes into the pool that's cut into the rock - I like that.

This is what happens when you don't sleep in.


I feel so at peace here. There is something that is just absolutely right about this place.

You want to do the minimum amount of work to afford the maximum amount of time doing the thing that you love. That's the way I want to live.


It's like this wide-angle lens looks weird. Look like a fisheye fool.

It’s actually…..

Really. That's what you think?

So we about to do the bridge climb. We about to go get our bridge climb on. I'm excited I've never done the bridge climb. We're heading up now


We're here we're standing we're atop the Harbour Bridge. The wind is so strong. You can see where it's almost pushing me over. But as you can see I'm perfectly safe because I'm attached; they've attached me and it's so beautiful. I can't wait to get to the top. We're really high and it's really windy. We made it - tippy top. Up the tippy tippy top y’all.


There's a photographer I love that does these really hot water photos - Eugene Tan and he's a beast.

That’s the man right there. That’s the man. I was like ohhh!

So we’ve been doing this a long time….9, 10 years. This is what I do. So, I started in the water, shooting just the surface of the water, like waves, and then kind of moved into aerial stuff.

This is great. I just want to be necked (naked), feeling the vibe… like why I need…. clothes. Yeah… I'm gonna be nekkid.

Capturing a crazy energy. It's like - man I want to be there – I want to be in that.

Well that’s the thing – it’s escapism, you know? I wanna take people to the beach. So I do it every day right?

Wait - so you take shots every day every day?

Every day. Cuz the lifestyle’s good here yeah? You can swim and all and the ocean and the sun.

It's funny – that was one of the first things that I noticed over, over beyond the beauty, it was the emotion of the lifestyle. It's like - completely different things were important to the people in that pool at 6:00 in the morning
