ASB MAGAZINE: Ted Grambeau is perhaps most famous for his work on Rip Curl’s The Search, or possibly the Quiksilver Crossing or the Billabong Odyssey, or any of the other hundreds of ad campaigns, editorial features or book projects based off Ted’s hypnotizing lineups. Grambeau, along with world-renowned ocean photo-artist Philip Thurston — a central figure in Foto Frenzy’s “Shooting Waves” workshops since 2016, will come together in Bali for eight days from April 27th-May 4th, 2019, to teach their craft to hobbyists and aspiring professionals alike.
Based on the Gold Coast, Foto Frenzy specialises in “creating innovative workshops that provide quality photography education to aspiring photographers, in and around the ocean environment.” The founder, Canon Master photographer Darren Jew, has been teaching photography and running day-long, weekend and extended live-in workshops for over 30 years. The workshops typically take place in Australia, but this year, Foto Frenzy will take their Surf Ocean Lifestyle Masterclass abroad — to the Komune Resort and Beach Club Bali, out front of the world-class reef-break of Keramas —where Ted and Phil will be supported by the Foto Frenzy Team as they use mentoring, tutorials and practical experiences to guide participants through a week of comprehensive and practical instruction and discussion that will establish the mindset, vision, skills and tools aspiring ocean photographers need to take their imagery to the next level. Representatives from Aquatech water housings will also be offering advice and an extensive range of popular housing and camera setups.
The workshop will alternate between classroom sessions, beach sessions, and of course, water sessions, so participants will gain a deeper, more intimate understanding of the whole spectrum of genres — surf, ocean and lifestyle — while sparking creativity, crafting skillset and providing tools that can be harnessed to achieve inspirational work and professional results.
