Marcus Paladino's unique and stunning portfolio contains some of the photography world's most compelling surfing images.
Surfing is why Marcus Paladino moved to Tofino. It's an integral part of his lifestyle and contributes to his livelihood. Bumpy boat rides, long drives, getting skunked, scoring good waves, chattering teeth, numb feet, blacking out, drowning cameras, mental frustration, and chasing serotonin are all part of the game when surfing the cold waters off Canada's West Coast.
Dedicated to capturing high-performance surfing at its best and finding split-second action and beauty in lost moments of time combine to help craft a portfolio of energetic and meditative photography like few others. With a keen eye for the unique and the almost forgotten, Cold Comfort is an amazing collection of imagery that skilfully communicates the photographer's deep love and respect for this western Canadian coastal landscape.
