Photolyfe: James Tull

Welcome to PhotoLyfe, in which Stab’s favourite photographers answer questions about themselves with their own images. It’s that old picture-tells-a-thousand-words chestnut but with more colour and pop. It’s a way to cut out all the bullshit. It’s like jacking into the main vein of those who supply us with exquisite surf imagery every day. Give thanks by studying each image with a more careful eye than ever!

Taking centre stage today for us is Californian lensman, Mr James Tull. During your scrolling adventures below you'll notice the man swings both ways in the whole digital v analog situation, which can be a refreshing trait in photography. The man also doesn't discriminate with waveriding approaches, whether they be performance or soul-orientated, he'll stand over it – or point a lens at it.

"I'm 33 years young, and I'm addicted to the shutter," said James. "My interests include; riding casual-wave-sliding vehicles, Baja road trips (I love Pacifico Light in a can), sneaking up on wild trout and catching them on dry fly, the occasional tuna hunt, camping off the grid and cruising with my beautiful wife Amy."

"I had a grand time digging around the archives for images. This project unlocked years of slide film, skateboarding, images of old friends, disposable waterpoof point-n-shoots, parties, and many Baja road trips. Thank you for that!"
