SASHA GOLYANOVA, Sochi, Russia
"Originally russian ex police officer I started my new life in 2014 in island of Bali. Swimming skills and passion for photography have defined my current occupation. I came to learn surfing and never went back.
Water photography is a long journey and only true love for the ocean and photo capture don't let me give up even in the most difficult ocean conditions. It pushes me from my comfort zone, and in that way helps to improve my skills, gives me a lot of new experiences and forces to keep on moving.
In my photography most of the time I concentrate on surfer. I like to capture face expression, unique movements, style and attitude. My ideas are bring riders personality into surf photography, make it artsy, tell the story of relationship between human and the ocean."
