Featured Photographer: Alex Frings, Byron Bay

1 October 2013

Alex Frings is a photographer and cinematographer located in Byron Bay.

Strongly drawn to natures forces and landscapes, his specialty lies in ocean and surf photography; both above and below the surface.

A keen waterman with a background in design, with a self taught ability to read the ocean and surfer alike, allows him to find and capture split seconds that are more often than not missed by the naked eye.

His pure dedication to experiencing the visual magic of life keeps him glued to the viewfinder of his camera, rarely missing a sunrise or a sunset.

Lately Alex has been extending his reach to the realm of film making; a medium that perfectly lends itself to revealing his deep sensibilities and gentle nature. Watch his short piece titled “Early” here.

“These guys are just everywhere here. On this particular day I was watching them play from the lighthouse. Drove my car down to the beach, swam out to them and took this photo.”
