Sunshine Coast - 24-hour Photography Challenge

Embarking on a 24-hour photography challenge was an exhilarating experience unlike any other. Teaming up with Jaya McIntyre from Empire Art Photography, we set out to capture the essence of winter and spring on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. Little did I know, Jaya had a surprise in store for me—an immersive and intense photography challenge known as the Photo Shootout. With just 24 hours on the clock, our mission was to shoot and submit three of our best images across three distinct categories: Landscape, Seascape, and Portrait. As someone who typically gravitates towards certain genres of photography, I found myself pushed out of my comfort zone in the best possible way. The challenge proved to be a catalyst for growth, encouraging me to explore new perspectives and techniques. Despite the initial apprehension, I embraced the opportunity wholeheartedly, recognizing that stepping outside my comfort zone was essential for personal and creative development.

Focusing my efforts around the captivating beauty of the beach, I spent the golden hours of early morning and late afternoon capturing the interplay between light and landscape. However, it was the portrait category that presented the greatest challenge—and the most unexpected triumph.Determined to capture the intimate relationship between humans and the ocean, I sought to convey the moment of harmony and control shared between surfer and wave. With the help of my friend Josh and a fair amount of sand in unexpected places, we managed to capture the perfect shot—a fleeting moment of synchronicity before the wave took control.Despite the technical limitations and the inevitable mishaps along the way, the experience was nothing short of transformative. It reminded me of the power of pushing boundaries, embracing challenges, and finding beauty in unexpected places. And as I reflect on the whirlwind 24-hour adventure, I’m reminded that growth often lies just beyond the edges of our comfort zone.
