Lawrence Tierney stands as a surf photographer native to Newcastle, seamlessly blending water and light to encapsulate the raw magnificence and allure of the ocean.

Originally, photography was merely a pastime for Lawrence until he embarked on his academic journey, pursuing a degree in Primary School Teaching. It was during his university tenure that he discovered photography as an elective, a revelation that ignited a profound passion for the art form. With each new lesson, Lawrence found himself increasingly enamored with the craft, recognising the indispensable role of patience and dedication in capturing the ever-shifting beauty of the ocean.

Just as with the waves themselves, mastering ocean photography demands an acceptance of the unpredictable and an unwavering commitment to the art form.
