Get Lost In The Majesty Of These Incredible Photos From Australia

1

Australia is home to some of the greatest beaches in the world but to truly appreciate them, you need to dive into the crystal clear water and experience them for yourself. That’s precisely how award-winning Australian photographer Warren Keelan achieves these majestic shots of giant swells and towering waves.

“I’ve always had a fascination with nature, especially the ocean and its ever changing forms, and I am compelled to capture and share what I feel are special and unique moments in the sea.”

“I love the raw, unpredictable nature of water in motion and the way sunlight brings it all to life, from both above and below the surface. For me, the challenge is creating an image that hopefully tells a story or leaves an impression on the viewer.” he explains.

Do you ever have days where you wake up feeling flat & uninspired, with a lack of motivation & direction? I spent many years writing & touring original music & now I get to use my creativity and express myself through photography for a living. Sounds like an amazing job right? Believe me it is! But there are times when you feel like the creative juices run low & although the passion is there, it seems like a real battle to find motivation. A few weeks back I was in a creative lull. I'm sure every artist goes through it but when it hits you, it really sucks the fat one. I know why I love what I do, but at times I don’t really feel it. Is this normal? Yep. So how do you reignite that fire & dig your way out of the creative hole? For me personally, I step back & put the camera down. I find that sometimes when you push too hard, you find yourself forcing the art instead of letting it happen. Other times I need to kick my own ass out of bed to hit the water, but that can work too if you go out with an open mind & just experiment. What really helps me is to disconnect myself from the internet, social media & the things you think you need to make it through each day & just unplug. Strangely, after a few days off from the phone, you begin to refocus & the joy of what you do starts to reappear. When you aren’t enjoying your own art, you tend to lose passion. In regards to finding new inspiration, look away from what you are doing, or what others are doing, & find it through other mediums that make you pulse. For me, it’s music. I love finding inspiration within progressive heavy musical art from bands that provoke thought through a darker sonic medium. After listening to an album I always feel the urge to create, try a different technique or even a new location, subject or simply change lenses. One thing that keeps me feeling inspired is to simply keep an open mind. If you follow my work, you’ll see I like to vary my pictures & try new things. However, it all comes back to my love of the ocean, what lives within it or happens on or above it. If you’ve made it thus far, sorry for my ramblings. I just wanted to spew some of my thoughts into words. Huge love! Cheers WK

Really stoked to find out this image titled 'Congeal' has been awarded 2nd place in the LeGrande International Photography Awards landscape/nature category this year. At the end of the day I make images for myself and to share with other humans but to have a vision that is recognised by international judges is pretty nice too! My pictures are made possible with the amazing support from @dafinaustralia @_adelio_ @sunzapper @nautilus_aus @aquatech_imagingsolutions & @surfears thanks legends! Congeal // now available at www.WarrenKeelan.com =========================== I created this image on a glassed out morning on an ocean reef using @canonaustralia's 5DMKIII with a 70-200mm IS2 lens encased in an @aquatech_imagingsolutions Sports Housing.

Over the past two days I have been loaded into an aluminium cage and lowered into the dark ocean waters of the amazing Neptune Islands of Port Lincoln, South Australia to observe & photograph the majestic Great White Shark. To say that my mind has been blown would be a massive understatement! I am writing this caption en route to a third day of diving with these beautiful creatures – the three hour boat ride out there seems shorter by the day. I still can't believe what I have experienced and consider this one of the best moments of my entire life and I look forward to sharing my story and images as soon as I return. Thanks to all the team and staff at @calypsostarcharters @port_lincoln for making this dream of mine possible. As I have yet to sort through and process my shark images, I thought this shot would be appropriate for the time being. Tsschhhh. Over. WK
