I know what you’re thinking: “Who the heck is Marcus Paladino?”  Well, he’s your cold-water king of surf photography. Through neoprene stiff fingers and frozen eyelids, Marcus is dedicated to capturing high-performance surfing on the west coast of Canada. He lives above 1/800th of a second, but isn’t afraid to slow things down. It’s sex, drugs and rock & roll, but also, it’s smooth jazz and a cup of tea. A habitual homebody just itching to get out of his comfort zone.

Surfing is the reason he wakes up every morning.  He doesn’t matter. The endeavour of marathon swims in bone-chilling and heart-pounding conditions is irrelevant. What’s important to him lies in front of the lens. The split-second moments that most people don’t even know exist; capturing them forever instead of letting them pass by.
