Ocean photography from a new viewpoint

Being an ocean photographer for the majority of my life, I’ve developed quite a relationship with moving water, it’s an energy and art form that I am constantly fascinated by. Equal to my passion for the ocean, is the mountain wilderness, which I’ve spent almost as much time exploring as I have spent swimming in the sea. Technological advancements in recent years have been astounding, enabling artists and photographers like myself to capture our relationship with nature in new and inventive waves. For the majority of my day trips, I will take the Manfrotto Aviator pack, it fits everything I need including my Phantom 4 Pro, DSLRs, lenses and a Manfrotto Befree Advanced Carbon Tripod. Equipped with these essentials I’ve been able to hike into the wilderness and capture the flow and energy of moving water from vertically above, transforming what would seem like an ordinary stream into a canvas of wonder. It’s exhilarating to see the world from this perspective, the possibilities are seemingly endless!

Philip’s passion for photography has developed from a lifestyle of living by the ocean and his adventurous spirit. “My goal with Thurston Photo is to create imagery and literature that provokes positive thought and inspires people to see life from a new perspective. Learning from my own experiences, I invest energy into inspiring others to live a purpose driven and meaningful life, to activate dreams, potential and purpose that’s worth pursuing wholeheartedly. I’ll happily spend hours straight in the ocean or spontaneously launch myself into the wild in hopes of encountering and capturing this beautiful world in a new and exciting way.”
