ABOUT ST SURFIMAGES
Each morning (mon-fri) we hit the beaches in and around Coffs Harbour with cameras loaded and ready to record the sunrise light mixed with some cool angles to give the viewer a few moments of visual pleasure via our daily photo blog.
Surfers of all ages and abilities will regularly feature on our site, so if you are getting to your feet while we are down there chances are you will become a part of this expanding website.
NOTE: To the paranoid surfers amongst us. None of the beaches that we photograph will be named. Nor will we nominate what beach we will go to each morning (totally random) smile and surf more and worry less!!… the only people that can claim local status are Koori Australians, the rest of us are just blowins anyway.
All of our images are shot with the high-resolution cameras and professional lenses, so if you like a shot, that special moment can be hanging in your house as an acrylic mount, stretched canvas or framed print forever more. Check the galleries page of our site to see if you already feature.
All of the images on this site are the property of ST Images. They are protected by a copyright which prohibits use by any person, business or website from using without permission. Contact us to gain permission and to negotiate price for usage.

LETS GET PERSONAL
The “T’ in “ST” SURF IMAGES is for Tom!
Tom is the main surf shooter at the moment, backed up nicely by Sherrin, but we will get to the “S” later.
I was about 14 and living in the waveless city of Adelaide when I found a copy of Surfing World. This chance meeting with as second hand, dog-eared magazine would change the course of my life. It was the beginning! I looked into the pages of that mag and was hypnotised. The photography was incredible, it sucked me deep into the blue/green barrels, I read this mag over and over and then I slowly began the mission of experiencing the beauty of the ocean.
It was a year or so later when I rode my first green wall at a beach called Moana in South Australia. Even before that ride came to an end I knew this was going to be the life for me.
I struggled on in Adelaide with my surf addiction for the next 5 years, doing the necessary long road trips to get my fix until Sherrin and I packed up a little campervan and travelled around Australia. On our travels we picked the mid north coast as our new home. That was 14 years ago and I love this coastline more every day. Our photography business is now 9 years old and we have been contributing to surfing magazines for the last 10 years.
I really hope to meet and photograph you someday.
My love of the ocean began at age 15 when my family moved from an inland country town to the coast.
The shoreline for me was a treasure trove of interesting things and the ocean gave me a certain peace.
It wasn’t long before I became a surf lifesaver and picked up my first surfboard.
Tom and I spent weekends surfing and travelling up and down the coast.
A couple of years after saving all our pennies we set off on a 14 month journey around Australia, surfing, taking photos and discovering our beautiful country.
We have lived in Coffs for the past 10 years and have two gorgeous kids who share our love for the ocean.
Photographing surfing and everything in and surrounding the ocean is our passion and we hope to share it with you.
