I’ve always wanted to photograph Whale Sharks underwater without the aid of a tour. After 10 days on the Ningaloo Reef off Exmouth, Western Australia, my dreams turned into reality and then some.

From encounters with 12ft tiger sharks, graceful underwater dances with giant oceanic manta rays, thrilling dives into bait-balls with frenzying sharks to slow motion glides with enormous whale sharks, the Ningaloo Reef had it all. Thick with diverse marine life all thriving in unimaginable numbers and under the watchful eye of a local population of passionate ocean conservationists.

Existing in perhaps the wrong era, Mr Jordan Spee of Perpetual Motion Surfboards accompanied me to Pitstop Hill in the Mentawai for a couple weeks surfing and hanging for a fun project for his major sponsor, Rhythm.

With a quiver of hand-shaped single fins of varying shapes and sizes, the mentawais was the perfect testing grounds to master these shapes and iron out any kinks for future shapes.

An ongoing series of opportunities to merge creative artists with premium apparel.

The aim for Banks Journal Studio is to provide a platform for creativity and facilitate the relationship between the two.

This season they teamed up with Australian/Japanese artist Mia Taninaka, who creates lively paintings that embody elements of magic, mysticism, and spirituality in fine lines and expansive color. Drawing inspiration from ancient mythologies, diverse cultures and deep spiritual practice, Mia’s paintings are interpretations of the realms beyond the surface layers of reality and inspire the viewer to explore the possibilities of subtle awareness.
