Photography is an art that captures social interaction and freezes a moment in time for future generations. Action Sports photography demands tough physical and psychological training, improvisation, speed and a constant fight against the violent conditions of mother nature.
There’s a photographer from Oaxaca, Mexico, who puts the name of his country at the top with his extraordinary work and the long-list of top athletes he’s shot over the years. Morales specializes in surfing, but this time he decided to test his skills with World Champion Jet Ski rider, Abraham Hochstrasser.
Morales decided to shoot Hochstrasser at a Big Wave competition - World Surf League Championship at Zicatela Beach. The XL swell factor immediately increased the level of difficulty and danger for Morales. This risky project produced some of the first photos taken from within the sea for this kind of sport.
