    That Slater at Waimea shot is epic. That shot of Uppers triggered memories. You are a great photographer.

    Great photos. Love your description of the spray shadows rolling down the beach at Supers. Surfers see waves, photogs see waves and light.

    Thank you for sharing those amazing pictures. I supose you are a profesional photografer but I would like to know wich kind or camera are you using for this kind of movements in the waves that are perfect !
    I am looking for a great camera as good as the one you have.

    i love the dylan graves pic in PR. if you look in the impact zone a guy ditched his can see his feet sticking up out the water.

    I sometimes wonder about photographers fav’s. Not Grant’s though, I find almost all of them quite striking!

  • Tim

    Grant it is such an inspiration to see where you have soared to,
    I remember you right in the beginning Doing Mich a favour shooting Chelsea on the beach front i dont think you had thought of traveling at this stage but boy oh boy greater things where yet to come, You where destined to show your skills and expose the talent you possess. It is great to see a safa with shooting skills from amanzim-Texas. Love your work.

    Big guy imagine my surprise when I downloaded the flip board app for my photographer wife and notice the article about you, we really enjoyed your gallery. I think my wife is a little jealous that I had such cool school friends back in the toti days. really enjoy your work and will definitely look out for more. Sing out when you next back on the gold coast
