Ray Collins (Winner)

Interpreting photons and shaping light with his camera while swimming in the ocean are the two things that keep Ray awake at night. He bought his first camera in 2007 to shoot his friends surfing around home, and within a few short years progressed to having companies such as Apple, Nikon, United Airlines, Isuzu, Qantas, Patagonia, National Geographic and Red Bull using Ray's instantly recognisable and unique images across their international campaigns.

From being the recipient of the prestigious 'Follow The Light Grant' (2009) and placing 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the ‘Australian Surf Photo of the Year' (2012), Semi Finalist in the 'Moran Portraiture Prize' (2012) ’Emerging Sport Photographer of the Year’ (Capture Professional Photography Magazine 2013) Runner Up ‘Ocean Geographic - Pictures of the year’ (2013), 1st place 'California Academy Of Sciences - Big Picture Awards' (2014) to having his work regularly exhibited in galleries and museums around the world - Ray feels that he is taking the first steps towards a rewarding career in image making.

Myles McGuinness

He’s a waterman and cameraman, can communicate verbally and visually, and manages brand strategy as well as he does typography. He is a Creative Director whose intuition and experience allow him to break from the script but stay exactly on-strategy. A fine artist backed with facts. And a photographer whose precision focus coexists with a broad depth of field. Instead of dictating, he integrates, shifting roles to fit the project, crew, client and shot at hand. Everything else just gets in the way of the idea.

It's been over 14 years of around the next corner adventures, adrenaline rushes, eye opening moments and humbling convictions. A journey that started producing editorial features for action sports and adventure magazines, a career that paints the pictures of athletes and musicians; it's all about the story. A style that is molded from years of deep snow, reeling ocean perfection and the characters that told the tale along the way. Brooks Institute graduate, Surfer Magazine freelancer at large and co-instigator for getinthevan.com.

New Hampshire native and adventure junkie. Surfer, rider and hiker full of heart. Camera in hand; dying to share the moment.
