Photographer of the week: Jason Reekie

Jason Reekie’s been shooting commercially for over a decade covering a wide range of subject and clients, though he tends to favour studio shoots and food.

His Icebergers project is the first part of an ongoing series covering open water swimmers in Port Phillip Bay through the seasons. To get these snaps Jason would head down to Mentone beach at dawn, when the water was about 10C.

After 15 minutes of standing in the water (no wetsuit, only boardies) he couldn’t feel his feet anymore and was shaking too much to shoot, so he decided to come back in. But not before he’d got his shot.

Now that’s dedication. See more of Jason’s work at jasonreekie.com.
