OUR SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER (
Who is Ren McGann?
Ren was born in Balingup (near Margaret River) in Western Australia in the middle of the bush (literally). He spent his childhood growing up in Freo and living in Exmouth for 10 years after being born in a bathtub. He now calls Margaret River home.
Ren has a clear vision of how he wants to portray a subject in each of his images. He tries to give each image a definitive voice. Shooting in places like the ocean becomes a numbers game given the harsh elements and volatile environment.
If I do a full session out in the surf I’d shoot a few thousand images. Out of that catalogue, realistically there may be 5 images that really stand out.Ren McGann
Ren is passionate about the artistic principles of photography—like composition—as well. This attribute is refreshing in a saturated wave photography world that can prioritise quick ‘likes’ over awesome imagery.
Capturing the Wrath of Nature
Combining lots of different elements, Ren primarily photographs the notorious off-shore slab waves of Australia’s South-West. He creates photos that are as magnificent as they are scary (as you can see from this page). A legion of 10,000 followers on Instagram waits in anticipation for his NEW material.
You can learn more about Ren’s story by tuning into Ep.36 of the Surf Coast Creatives podcast (it’s been one of our most popular episodes to date!):
