Canon Master: Eugene Tan

by on Thursday 21st November, 2013   18026 Visits   Comments

You’ll have seen his work here on magicseaweed and Aquabumps, Eugene Tan grew up in Western Australia and started surfing in the Cottesloe shorebreak at age three, clinging to his father’s back.

Today, he still spends every spare moment immersed in the ocean, but now he’s taking photos when he’s not surfing. Eugene’s fascination for photography started early taking pictures as a teenager and continued as he studied photography at university as part of his design degree.

After 10 years as a Creative Director for a leading digital agency, Eugene left the city to concentrate full time as a professional photographer and blogger. Today, Eugene combines both of his passions – surfing and photography – in his successful photography business, Aquabumps. Eugene Tan captures Bondi Beach at sunrise every day, and has done so for 13 years, sending his images to more than 90,000 people each morning.

Canon Australia appointed Eugen as a Canon Master in 2013 and this film produced by untitled film works tells his story in his own words.
