A few words from the artist…

Isle of Wight Surf Photographer - Jason Swain

“My relationship with photography began at a young age, i’ve used cameras for as long as i can remember. It started out as a way of capturing and composing ideas for my paintings using traditional media (Oil & Watercolour landscapes) and as inspirations for my graphic design ideas. Slowly over the years, it grew on me as an art form in its own right. I love the immediacy and energy of the medium, and it was a series of shots taken on my travels in Peru that I first felt were interesting enough to stand on their own to be viewed as ‘Art’.

After travelling the world extensively, I settled on the Isle of Wight in the 90’s, immersing myself in the wild and beautiful coastline of the West Wight. It’s the meeting of land and sea along that coast, and the activity that flourishes in the small places between them, that provides my daily inspiration. The ever changing weather and light creates endless creative possibilities for landscape phtography & seascapes, as well as being the setting for my love affair with surfing. It was always my favourite subject with paint & brushes and now it’s my favourite place with camera & surfboard and the setting for my Isle of Wight Surf Photography collection.”
