Andrew Shield

"Whether swimming in 10 foot surf, wandering malaria-infested islands to find better angles or shooting from his boat at home on the Gold Coast, Shieldsy delivers beyond expectations. His talent and attitude, his willingness to take on any assignment no matter how big or small, and the regard he's held by both athletes and the whole surf industry see Andrew Shield at the top of his game. Simply put, he's once of the world's most complete surf photographers, and we're lucky to have him on our team."

Stuart Gibson

"I was born in Tasmania in 1983 and I became a photographer around 2003, although I’ve always loved cameras and filming. It wasn’t until I borrowed a friends Canon EOS 5 that I fell in love with still photography, the quality amazed me! Shooting on 35mm slide film was a true test to learn the skills to become a photographer.

A fellow Tasmanian and professional photographer Sean Davey was my main inspiration and mentor. He’s always keen to lend a helping hand, which I’m ever so grateful for! But I think to become a great photographer it’s not really about who inspires you, but more what inspires you. Sometimes it’s hard to focus on the finer details all the time, but that’s where you will generally find the key elements that make a memorable image. I’m still learning so much in the photo world but I’m having so much fun doing it. I truly can’t think of a better job.

My main passions are surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding. But my photos are more than 90% surfing, or in the water in some way. I was practically born surfing so it's hard to be away from the coast for too long. My life as a photographer consists of traveling, swimming, sun, and sitting behind a computer – a lot!"
