From Issue 1 – you can buy it here!
The man behind the lens, about half the shots you find on the pages of Freedom come from Jason’s unique talent.
The first time I worked with Photographer Jason Wolcott was on the BWS Filthy West trip. I immediately noticed the guy had that creative spark that you only see in a select few people… The smallest things would get him excited, and driving all those hours through Western Australia, we were constantly stopping for him to photograph spiders, road kill, landscape, trees, empty waves, and windmills…. lots of windmills… if the light was good, we knew it was going to be a long day… his love of photography drives him to seek the best angle, light, and composition, in short he is a perfectionist. His drive to make exceptional images is why he finds himself as one of the leading photographers in the industry. Jason’s constant pursuit of the perfect photograph will always find him following the light. In this feature he has gathered a collection of his most memorable moments in his time photographing kiting. Kick back and enjoy… ~ Ollie J
Somewhere south of heaven Marc Ramseier walks back in after a perfect day kitesurfing.
Finding yourself in the position i found myself in shooting Kevin Langaree is not as pretty as it seems…
I got blasted off the reef and he got spat out of the pit… Nice to be him!
Wes Matweyew surf roots run deep, he is one of the best all around athletes you will ever see and he changed the face of kitesurfing more than you know. He showed Ian Alldredge and Patrick Rebstock how to kite with out straps.
The Great Ocean Road is a sight to see.
Ian Alldredge and Ben Wilson have a look around on the dirty south trip way back when.
It’s fair to say that the son of the shark Greg Norman Jr. rips at wakestyle.
He is pretty damned good on the cable park as well!
Making the most of the fading light and howling wind, Alberto Rondina brings a snowstorm to kingfisher in the northern Philippines.
This is the stretch of coast i learned to both shoot kitesurfing and learned to kite.
I love the light, the coastline, the cold pacific ocean. Ian Alldredge does too, all flipped out in Ventura, California.
I always like to shoot until the last beams of sunlight are gone.
Patrick rebstock loves to ride just as much. sunset in Indo.
I nearly won the Surfer poll photo of the year 2009 with this image.
Water Color Wave as it is know throughout the surfing world, is my Mona Lisa.
