What you'll do

My name is Charlotte aka Lotta and the Waves.
I'm a water & lifestyle photographer based between Bali and Australia.

I fell in love with the ocean and surfing at a very early age, and chose to spend my life capturing it’s beauty.
My work has been featured in several surfing magazines and I shot surf photos for surf professionals and major surf brands. I'm eager to share my love for this craft with everyone who loves surfing or is interested in this very unique kind of photography.

Amazing experience with Lotta. It’s the first time I’ve booked a surf photography session but having been a surfer for the past 35 years I really wanted to get a set of decent photos of myself In the water. Plus, where better to get photos than in Byron Bay? I was a bit nervous at first, because I’m not used to showing off nor being the center of attention and I’m definitely not a model, but this session with Lotta was worth every penny. Lotta was very attentive to my needs and made me feel comfortable. The setting was the best surf spot I’ve ever been to, the light was amazing and and Lotta delivered a set of 50 stunning photographs. I can’t believe it’s me! Lotta is an extremely talented photographer and captures the most exquisite images. Thank you for capturing the joy of the moment!

Lotta is an extremely talented photographer. She catches the moments, finds that perfect light and has a lot of vision to create unique photos. She is easy going, has a big smile and works hard. On the day we went for some surf photography the waves weren't that good, so we tried a lot of other things for some 'lifestyle photos' and had so much fun the entire time! I felt really relaxed and trusted her because of her talent and experience. Just take a look at her instagram account and you will see her passion and skills combined in her photos. Thank you so much for giving me the best souvenir of my trip in Australia!
