Who is Tal Lemmens?

Tal Lemmens (b. 1991) is an ocean and seascape photographer based in Torquay, Victoria, Australia.

Tal is originally from Warrnambool and relocated in 2017. He frequently visits the Great Ocean Road and other parts of the Australian coastline.

Many of Tal’s photographs document our wild, windy and rugged part of the southern hemisphere.

Tal’s photography endeavours have led to critical acclaim in both national and international photo competitions.

Here’s Tal’s take on life by the sea as an image maker:

Feel as I feel – draw in the oceans air, taste the salt on your tongue & bare witness to the altering states of the ocean. These are my testimonials to the sea.

Tal Lemmens

The ocean has always been something that Tal has been connected to from a young age. He speaks of gratitude to his father for introducing him to the sea and bodyboarding.

Stumbling across old film photos of his Dads’ surf trips, Tal recognised early on that photos could tell a story and fund a lifestyle. His passion for photography was born.

Tal was inspired by imagery at a young age after stumbling on photos of his Dad’s old surfing trips and the stories they told.

Tal spent the majority of his youth taking photos of his friend’s surfing at Warrnambool. This was the precursor for Tal developing and honing his skills and his career capturing iconic seascapes.

Mental well being is an important driver in Tal’s journey as well. His photographs are as much about the journey of capturing moments, as it is about producing the final photograph.

An Eye on the Future

Spending the majority of his time in the ocean, Tal values environmental sustainability and is a local advocate for protecting oceans and coastlines. He strives to indoctrinate sustainability into his photography products.

No matter what, the ocean will always be a part of him – Tal states the ocean is his lifeblood, “I am consigned to the sea.”
