Mitch Gilmore. How to use a GoPro like Pro.

The King of Clarity himself joins me in this episode. It was a balmy morning on the Gold Coast, we grabbed our take away coffee and snuck into a little patch of quite that didn't stay quiet long. Questionable parking from the pair of us, we were on constant look out for parking inspectors and foreign distractions pumping their rave beats at an incredibly early hour for such a high tempo beat.... none the less we pressed on till the conversation started flowing and the golden tips were plentiful.

Mitch Gilmore - How to use a GoPro like Pro.

Mitch Gilmore is the first name many use as their inspiration into the world of Ocean Imagery, he casts a burly shadow when meeting him first hand, tall, built and with facial hair that puts my pre-pubescent growth to shame, plenty are correct with their description of his mild nature. I first met Mitch on the sandy shores of the Gold Coast, unfamiliar with his follower count or his quality GoPro only work, we were introduced by a mutual friend. He's an instant nice guy, welcoming conversation and keen to gel over a mutual love of the ocean it wasn't long until I was hearing his name in my photography circles. In this conversation we not only delve into the life of a GoPro family member but also a little into his family and take a peak behind the curtain of the most requested guest so far. I have a very special competition for you this episode, DMC fins, Mitch and myself have teamed up to offer one lucky listener the chance to win their very own set of DMC fins! They are the fin of choice for both of us and they've gotten me personally out of a couple heavy beatings in the ocean...but thats not all...not only do you receive the DMC fins you'll also get a coaching session with the pair of us on the Gold Coast.

Scott Amos. Surf photography, branding and using your manners.

"What's up with your sunglasses in the water"... "Are they just regular sunnies?"

I ask Scott Amos as we settle in for a conversation next to another Gold Coast body of water. Scott's distinguishable from other surf photographers by his sun-cap and Oakley sunglasses, years of constant glare have left his eyes vulnerable to direct sunlight "Never wear the polarised lenses" he says, "You can't see the rear lcd of the camera!" Previously shy and stand offish in the water Scott tells me how an injury brought him from surfing to surf photography and now how his favourite thing to photograph is wave riders and the stoke it provides. He tells me of a recent run in with a surfer and their fins, his unique 3 camera set up and a charity thats brought him a huge amount of joy.

Jake Brereton. The bringing together of a community.

In this episode, just in time for another Ocean Imagery Creatives get together, I talk to the face and driving force behind the social event Jake Brereton. We discuss his imagery journey thus far and how a crowded and less than friendly surf line up got him started.

Jake tells me what the ocean and shooting only GoPro means to him and if you listen really hard, even shares his beat boxing skills. He's a good man a social guy, always up for a chat and nothing is too much for his mates.

Enjoy the show and look for him at the next gathering.

Jake Brereton Go Pro Ocean Photographer

Details of the meeting: 24th Feb 2019, 5:30am, Burleigh Beach.

All levels welcome, its a social gathering as well as a creative one. Swell predictions are MASSIVE, conditions will be assessed on the day. With cyclone Oma and Huey pumping us overhead barrels at the moment and double the size forecast it could be a day on the sand for me and many others. I'll be running around collecting audio for the show so please don't be afraid to say hello.

Travis Johnson with Chasing Clarity Host Odell Harris

Travis Johnson. I want to shoot heaving Pipe!

Travis Johnson - I want to shoot heaving Pipe !

Travis "Don" Johnson's head bobs just above the water in the impact zone. This is where he's most happy, this is where I meet him the morning of our non-scheduled recording. "The Don" a flamboyant child of the 80's had attended the first ever Water Rats event two weeks previous and had expressed his desire to be among the likes of Zac Noyle in the line up of Pipeline. "Thats a pretty big goal big fella." I remarked, "I'd be keen to hear about it". Travis is a relative new comer to the world of ocean imagery, specifically surf photography , he has a hunger I recognise. In this conversation we pick apart that hunger and take on board the many lessons he's learnt from the likes of his idol's Ted Grambeau and Corey Wilson.

You can't help but be inspired to get your fins in the water and start licking your lens once you've listened to Travis's passion for the craft and his determination to chase that formidable thing....

Craig Halstead - Podcast With Host Odell Harris

Odell+Harris+Interview+Chasing+Clarity.jpeg

Craig Halstead - How to have longevity in the surf film industry and film the best surfers on tour.

16 years of filming some of the best surfers on the planet is what Craig Halstead brings to this episode. It's scorching hot on an early morning over looking the famous Kirra right hander, today a waist high, fuller tide swell crumbles along the famed point. "There hasn't been a decent swell for a while now!" calls an older gentleman hunched over in pain and shuffling toward me. "I still get to the beach at 4:30 in the morning...every morning." He continues, now closer. Craig directs me to a seating area and we begin our conversation for the show.

Just like the daily clips he creates, his penchant for story telling is matched by few and he begins with some straight away. A lot can be learned by listening to those with far more experience, I hope you'll take away as much as I did sitting with one of the areas long serving stalwarts.
