Ray Collins' wave photographs are an amazing body of work, you can check out the stills at his website http://raycollinsphoto.com/
The work shows us a fantastic example of working on a personal project of many years. He appears to be Sydney based in Bulli. He is colour blind. It is interesting to hear what he says about the importance of light in the second video included in this post.
He even prints on CENTURION Photo Silk 285 paper, the same paper I prefer.
You can follow his daily work on instagram
Definitely take a moment to have a look through his SeaStills series, for they are inspiring.
