Photographer Doug Falter captures the beauty and vitality of the ocean using elements of light, color and his unique perspective as a surfer.
Doug discovered his passion for the ocean when he started surfing as a young adult. He was immediately captivated by the beauty of the ocean and set out to capture its essence through photography. His pursuit of ocean waves led him to Hawaii — the very birthplace of surfing. In a leap of faith, he left his job, parted with all his possessions and moved to the North Shore of Oahu in pursuit of his true passion.
Committed to encountering the ocean at a deeper level, he studied its nature and began swimming into waves larger than most would dare approach. Within his first year of shooting, his work attracted national and international attention and critical acclaim, including recognition from numerous magazines and media outlets.
