Neil - Finisterre Ambassador
Neil is one of the smoothest surfers you will come across. More than likely, he could surf a bin lid or a tea tray with more style than most people ride a surfboard. He is also an artist who produces beautiful pieces of ocean related artwork and someone who is part of the local community, getting to know people and involving himself in local events. Because of this he is the perfect fit for the clothing company Finisterre. A company who is trying to keep it’s impact on productiion as local and as small as possible. Not having products parts flownn half way around the world, to have zips sewn on or panels cut, just because it is cheaper. Making products to last a lifetime - not to be thrown away and replaced with something ‘more hip’. Their clothes have a modern clean contemporary cut so they will still look good in twenty years .
I am working with Neil to give him a series of images and short films. Here is the first set (before my camera went balistic and started flashing red lights and incomprehensible warnings at me.)
