His portfolio is a journey across oceans, each photograph a whisper of the wild, untamed symphony of surf. A surfer himself, Daniel often takes along a camera to get some shots while he checks for the best surf spot. The photos, people and waves he finds along the way are amazing.

Capturing the right moment in surf photography is a tricky task. It requires good timing, understanding the lighting, and knowing how the ocean behaves. It’s not just about having a fast camera, but also about knowing the rhythm of the waves. Daniel Mekis blends technical skills with his understanding of the surf to take pictures that show the energy and skill of the surfer, and the beauty of the sea. Through a mix of the right gear and instinct, Daniel’s images make fleeting surf moments last forever. Sharing the photos with the folks in the water is a great feeling, and a great way to get invited to the best spots for a session with the crews.
