A self-taught craftsman, this Northern Beaches local has a spectacular eye for natural beauty.

Just like surf industry ‘fashion’, ocean photography can start to feel a little bit same-same. And without trying to sound like art experts, young Oliver Brennan’s work feels like something altogether different.

From stirring images of living subjects, to powerful black and whites, and rich, textured compositions of rugged oceans and shining sunlight, Oliver’s collection feels like it should belong to someone who’s been around more than his young years.
