Ben Thouard

I grew up in the south of France where the waves are small. My father was a sailor and taught me everything about the ocean. Rocked by waves and wind, I received an education in close connection with nature and especially the sea. Coached by my older brothers, I quickly fell in love with surfing and spent the most time possible in the ocean. I discovered photography at the age of 15 and start shooting my friends at surfing. I knew photography will be my life ! I made Teahupo’o’s famous wave my backyard and favorite place to shoot. Mesmerized by the many colors of my home, I have explored new ways of shooting by flying aboard a motorized paraglider. My curiosity and thirst for discovery takes me constantly around the world to meet new cultures and discover new places. I live the dream and satisfy my two passions : photography and the ocean.
