Bob Weeks starting taking photographs, developing and printing them when he was 10 years old, way back in 1950’s Sydney. The following 1960’s surfing images are part of his collection, and house some of the real gems in Australian Surfing history. Bob moved on from ‘surfing photography’ around 66’ outlining that ‘things changed.’ Bob Weeks has an award winning collection that traverses many genres and six decades of passion, the sort of passion that keeps you awake at night tinkering with the possibilities.
Growing up in Sydney and surfing with his mates on the south side, in a time of plank riding and surfing innocence, Bob and his mates lived for the surf. Bob says that ‘the mood changed’, not just with surfing becoming popular, but also all his mates started getting married and surfing became more just for fun and real life took over. Bob Weeks moved from Sydney to Woolgoolga, Northern NSW, in 1971 as soon as his first daughter was born, naturally seeking the country lifestyle for his children.
Today, Bob is just as pumped about photography and knows his way around the modern equipment and post production techniques like he was born in the technological age…from the early 1950’s to today, the passion still burns, he still works full time as a professional photographer, prints his classic surfing images on high grade cotton paper and shuns any attempt at commercialising his works.
