Fiona Pyke Photographer

Fiona Pyke is a surf photographer who has been documenting North Stradbroke Island/ Minjerribah life for last 15 years. Author of two books, She Surfs with a Smile and An Ocean Life, and founder of Sea Sisters Minjerribah, Fiona is an active advocate for women’s surfing in the region – and using photography as a creative expression.

 

“I am always trying to create a surf picture that shows the emotion behind the surfing while using the natural creativity of the waves, light and surroundings, whether the picture is taken in the ocean or on land. I like to take a picture and have a story behind it, so it has a unique memory and that it creates conversation as well as a visual. I believe that starting everyday in the ocean inspires a new day of artistic creation.”
