The world around the surfer Olivia Ottaway freezes at the moment the waves crash over her. The image exudes complete calm and balance, despite the display of one of nature’s greatest forces. Both organisationally and photographically, this image is not a mere product of chance. The planning for the project and the execution of this specific frame with the help of an underwater housing are the impressive result of hard work, dedication, and an understanding of the sport.”
– Matthias Hangst, Director of Sports Content EMEA & APAC.
