Russell Ord’s spectacular images have won him worldwide recognition and deservedly so. He defines wave photography. Based in Western Australia, Russell is renowned for his breath taking images of super-thick empty peaks and heavy sessions at reefs like The Box and The Right.
A fireman by trade, Russell knows risk management better than most and he continuously risks his life to get t-h-e shot. He swims in the heaviest slab waves in the world, with the water being cold and sharky. Red Bull uses him for serious water shoots and Hollywood came knocking when Drift was filmed in Western Australia.
Much easier to buy these photos than take them.
