I chose to submit images of the ocean as my ‘backyard’ because that is the place where I spend a lot of my time. I love being in the ocean, whether it be surfing, shooting or just swimming. I chose to get into the water to take these images because it gives a different perspective of the ocean. Most people only see the big waves from the beach, but I like to show people, through my images, what it’s actually like to be in the ocean.
