Multi-award-winning photographer Kian Bates – Raw Edge Photography

Raw Edge Photography has been awarded several accolades including being highly commended as one of Australia’s top emerging photographers and won bronze two years running in the Epson Pano Awards.

Kian’s passion for the ocean is what makes his Photography so unique, for him, being able to freeze a breaking wave in a moment of time is incredibly rewarding.

“I grew up next to the ocean, so I’ve always had an affinity for it. It doesn’t matter whether I’m on a bodyboard or a surfboard, or if I’m fishing, free-diving or simply behind the camera – I feel recharged by the ocean’s magnificence.”
