Quiksilver & Kelly Slater. A long standing relationship that has created surfing history. We have had a fascination with surfing for decades despite still not venturing into the water with a board just yet... Perhaps this is to come. The mention of Kelly's name is always met with awe. We were commissioned by Quiksilver to capture a portrait of Kelly alongside documenting his journey from Melbourne to the Quiksilver Pro on board a Jetstar aeroplane.
"Most anything I've ever set my mind to, I could accomplish." - Kelly Slater
This image was shot with a ring flash at very close range. Every pore, eyelash and minute detail is visible. The image holds his gazing intensity. We personally admire his drive. All of the other Quiksilver team legends were also on board the flight and over the course of the tour we captured and collated their headshots into one image for the brand.
