With its ever-changing motions, surf photography is never consistent, allowing Kalle to take interesting compositions that are both challenging and inspiring. Spending countless hours in the water, he creates powerful imagery and creates his own interpretations of the world’s most unexplored yet sought after environment. He sees the surfer as a complement to this alluring area we call the sea; making his photos more engaging.
His behind-the-surfer images are exposed through exploration of the waves that manipulate shadows and create defying depth. With the ocean being such a vast space, it is both a challenge and an inspiring experience for Kalle to come up with new interesting composition.
Kalle makes the most of natural light as he says it is one of the essential components to getting the most from the setting. The sunrays blend harmoniously against the riffles of the waves, elevating his images. “Light is everything, without it there is nothing to capture and my favorite light is sunrise or sunset.”
