MARK "STORK" THOMPSON, Sydney, Australia
"I'm 29 years old, Sydney based recreational photographer. I am tall and lanky and I have a big nose, which is what gives me my nick name "Stork" I think.
Life is to unpredictable so I just try to enjoy what is in front of me and hope my ideas eventuate to reality, or something even better. I try to maintain a balance between work and play. I think balance is important. Everything in moderation.
Surfing is such a great lifestyle. It involves so many things in life. Meditation, art, strength, passion, release, style, emotion, connections and so much more. I think I'll be happy to continue to explore surfing till I die."
