Ben Thoaurd

Ben grew up in the south of France where his sailor father taught him everything about the ocean. Rocked by waves and wind, this experienced created a connection with nature and especially the sea. He quickly fell in love with surfing and spent every possible moment in the ocean.

He discovered photography at the age of 15 and started shooting his friends who surfed. After learning the basics in Toulon, Ben then studied in a photography school in Paris He has travelled the world alongside professionals in search of photogenic landscapes and waves that have never been surfed before.

Ben has lived in Tahiti from the age of 22 and has risen to the top of his game as one of the leading photographers based in the tropical paradise French Polynesia. The work he has created including magazine covers & advertising campaigns has led to global success and acknowledgment from his peers and many happy clients worldwide.

Ben now dedicates a lot of his time shooting waves and ocean images displayed in various art galleries. He recently released his first solo book "Surface", a 184- page, coffee table book that includes some new and unseen images.
