Kayakcameraman Exhibition

Local Press Café – Kingston Foreshore

3 September – Dec 2015

Paul Jurak


I’m a kayaker who has fallen in love with photography. What I love about paddling and photography is that it provides me with an incredibly calm head space. “It’s my meditation.”

You will find me paddling on Lake Burley Griffin most mornings and evenings, quietly snapping away at the unique seasonal and light changes that take place around me.

I began paddling on the lake as a way to rebuild both my body and mind after enduring an intensive three month bout of chemotherapy due to testicular cancer.

I grew up in Newcastle, NSW and surfed but I had never paddled a kayak. Paddling on Lake Burley Griffin reunited me with the water and allowed me to capture the sunrises and sunsets that I experienced during my youth. No two days are the same, and each day provides me with a natural light show that sometimes leaves me gasping in wonder. I hope that you enjoy the photos as much as I have enjoyed capturing them.

More images can be viewed on my website www.kayakcameraman.com and you can find me on facebook, twitter and Instagram.
