Brandon, who has been a keen surfer all his life, began wave photography five years ago after he was given a GoPro camera.
Since then he has become good friends with many people who also take pictures of waves and has discovered that there is a whole community of wave photographers that even meet up to shoot together.

‘Growing up in Southern California, I always went to the beach and rode waves, whether it was surfing, bodyboarding or bodysurfing,’ he said.
‘The photography started when my in-laws got me a GoPro camera for Christmas a few years ago.
‘At that point I decided I needed to start doing adventurous things to make use of my camera.’

Imbriale describes the feeling of capturing the images, which are taken in different locations around southern California, as ‘incredibly addictive.’
‘It’s a feeling that has made me come back time and time again,’ he says.
‘Being inside a wide-throwing shorebreak barrel is about as exhilarating as it gets.
‘It’s also extremely satisfying to know that you are providing a view for people that allows them to see the beauty of waves and the ocean they will never normally see.

Although the footage may suggest that the work is serene, the surfer says that capturing the images is no easy feat and has been put in danger numerous times.
Writing on his blog, Average Surfer, he has told of the trials he is faced with while in the water.
‘I’ve been washed across reefs, slammed onto the shore, hit in the head by my camera, held underwater and stung by stingrays but the satisfaction at the end product makes the risks worth it.’
