Over the years I have worked for Rip Curl extensively. from shooting stills for editorial and advertising campaigns to creating, directing, shooting and editing video campaigns. It’s been a pretty wild journey for sure. Being Rip Curls top male athlete has meant that many of the campaigns I have shot have included Mick. Mick has always been amazing to shoot and I would have to say that it would be rare to have a session that you didn’t get something worth publishing. His turn’s are so crisp and his style so refined that shooting him becomes easy. One of the most memorable sessions that I have witnessed was at a particularly shallow reef break in Indonesia. Mick was the only one out riding tube after tube as deep as humanly possible. It was a 1 hour window that the wind mellowed, the rain stopped and the waves were draining. Possibly some of the best tube riding ever done, for an audience of 4.
