Underwater photography and filming is one of the closest places to being in touch with the element you’re working with. Sachi Cunningham, renowned big wave surf photographer and journalist, is one of the elite females in her medium, who combines an intrinsic passion and skill to capture some of the biggest names in big wave surfing.
In addition to being in a male dominated sport, the word of surf and ocean photography on the big wave level is also male dominated. This only propels the talent that is Sachi to continue to push the limits and provide beautiful captures for all to enjoy. Based out of the bay area, Sachi manages to balance motherhood with her busy work life on a daily basis.
Through somewhat meticulous preparation, an eye for the perfect angle, and intensive physical training, Sachi Cunningham puts herself in some of the most enviable lineups and breaks around the world. Cheers Sachi, and thank you for the beautiful captures from all of us here at The Surf Channel!
