Shey Ivanov

Byron Bay-bred surfer and photographer Shey Ivanov’s stunning underwater images of iconic Sydney surf breaks have been shown to a global audience.

The publicity coincides with an exhibition which opened this week in Brunswick Heads of Shey’s photos depicting scenery in his former home turf of Byron and surrounds.

UK-based newspaper the Daily Mail this week published a feature article on Shey, 32, and his images around Curl Curl Beach where he now lives and other Sydney beaches.

Shey’s local images are now on display at Yami’s Cafe in Brunswick Heads.

Over the past few years, Shey has built up a following on social media and the responses he gets from his followers he says make his efforts worthwhile, especially as he works full time and pursues his passion on the side, spending hours in the water every evening.

His mum Tuppy, from Mullumbimby, who works at The Byron Shire Echo, is justifiably proud of her son’s passion for both surfing and photography, saying they were a big part of his life when he lived in Byron.

Shey’s eye-catching images are shot from the water using a Digital SLR Canon 5D Mark 3 in waterproof housing. His work can also be seen at www.facebook.com/TheFrothLab.

Shey's dog Kyza, who he said is 'a nutter, but pretty much the best thing in my life', is a 4-year-old American Staffy cross Australian cattle. This image was taken in a lagoon near the North Curl Curl walking track.
