The South Australian coast is the backyard and muse for Hayden Richards, better known by his insta handle @sarips. Hayden is a photographer unlike many. You won’t find him on paid photo shoots, capturing a shot list for a magazine or an event. Hayden is a purist, an artist, in the extreme.
On his shoots he can be gone for days, looking for a perspective in the landscape that reveals something otherworldly, and capturing that perspectives is no easy task. Whether he scales the cliff-studded coast or slips into the dark,bottomless ocean patrolled by great whites, a shot that comes from Hayden's camera encompasses significantly more danger than almost anyone else. The combination of stunning landscape, tangible danger and raw photographic talent, produces the spectacular.
