I was pretty happy shooting alongside Andre Rurukura for the latest Ocean Grown Abalone campaign, what an amazing experience photo wise but more so the education I received over the three days, thank you to Brad and his incredible team for the opportunity.
From The Ocean Grown Abalone Website: An exciting new Western Australian innovation. We build our own artificial abalone reefs on our leases in the pristine waters of Flinders Bay. We then place hatchery reared juvenile abalone on them – then let nature (with a little help from our divers) do the rest to produce this marine delicacy. A totally natural ‘wild-harvest’ product. Because we have some control of the process we can harvest to market demand to whatever size the market requires.
