Get me into the ocean ASAP.

It’s hard to look at Aussie surf photographer Emy Dosset’s portfolio and not want to quit your job, pick up a board and go hit the surf. The 34-year-old seems to have a knack for not only making the surf and surfers look amazing, but also making surf photography look easy – which it definitely is not.

Specialising in capturing that longboarder at just the right time, it’s Emy’s eye for the sky that makes her work stand out amongst the plethora of surf shooters. Each snap feels like it would be beautiful with or without the surfer, as the natural world is a big part of each shot’s essence. “I love to play with the alluring aesthetics of my natural surroundings, combining natural light, colour and my subject to create my dreamy, ethereal style,” she says.

Though she grew in Northern New South Wales, she currently lives in Sayulita, Mexico, which is probably why the coastline and breaks in the pics below don’t exactly seem super familiar. It sounds like the perfect place to shoot a tonne of surfing, and it was Mexico where she had one of her craziest experiences in the water.

“I was shooting at Mexi Log Fest in La Saladita, Mexico last year. It was finals day and the surf was pumping! 6-8ft waves! It took me to swim 40 mins to get to where I wanted to be to shoot, fighting against the current. I was literally ten metres away when a wide set came through and I got caught in the inside, which washed me back,” she says.

“I had to swim another 15 minutes to get in position, finally making it to where I wanted to be. It was so raw and exhilarating and all the contestants were absolutely shredding. Being right in the middle of big rolling sets and amongst some of the best longboarders in the world was nothing short of amazing.”
