About me: Born and raised away from the ocean (Paris suburb, France) until the age of 20, I’ve only been introduced to bodyboarding when I moved on to the west coast of France for my studies.
Since then, i’ve been more and more addicted to the beach lifestyle and i started doing water photography so i could get the most of the busiest sessions.
To me, doing surf photography is getting more and more important to that point that all my travels are now only focused on opening new galleries for my website, discovering new places, new people, new cultures, and much more...
I’ve been genuinely lucky to be able to travel a bit during my studies and especially to Western Australia, Hawaii, Indonesia, Maldives, Highlands, France and hopefully a lot more to come in the next few years.
My work can be seen at www.nicolas-risch-photography.fr and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I had fun to take all those photos.
I spend most of my time in: on facebook
My favourite action sports: surfing and everything that is in the ocean
I am interested in: photography, surfing, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, music, guitar, longskate, drinking Little Creatures, driving on caves road, timtams, mojitos, party
I take photos because: i'm never satisfied with my previous shot
