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!

Josh Tabone edits his photos as little as possible. “Keep it natural looking,” he says. “You’ll grow stronger as a photographer without Photoshop.” Ain’t that a bizarre thought for 2014! While Josh makes noise through his work, he only considers himself a little fish in the vast pond of surf lensmen. The self-taught gent from Port Macquarie started, like many, with a pal’s borrowed camera and now captures all kinds of moments with great emphasis on his settings at-the-fact, rather than manipulation in post. We love organics! What an eye this man has…
