Jason Childs Photographer

For as long as Jason Childs can remember, Indonesia has captured his heart and soul.

Since his first trip to Bali and Nias and then to the wilds of Sumba on a leaky fishing boat, he has returned over and over again.

He has created many nostalgic and definitive images of Indonesian surf and its people. These images transport you to another place and time to experience the fascinating culture, dramatic scenery and surf in Indonesia.

Capturing and documenting the history of surfing in Indonesia continues to be one of his passions. His love of Indonesia, its surf, culture and people shine through in his imagery.

Jason’s lifelong fascination with the ocean and travel has played an important role in keeping his worldly photography in balance and since 1985, his surfing and beach lifestyle photography has stood firmly among the best in the world and has graced the covers of every major surf and beach lifestyle magazine on the globe, including the prestigious USA publication Surfer Magazine-The Bible of Surfing as a Senior Staff Photographer for many years.

“I love my job, it’s been a lifelong obsession that I’m still in love with today as much as I was when I first started taking photos over 30 years ago”.
