ABOUT TED GRAMBEAU
resume | photographic portfolio

Ted Grambeau is an internationally renowned surf adventure photographer. Shooting advertising, fashion and action in some of the most remote regions on the planet.

Exploring the globe for surf from the most unlikely areas like Iceland to Russia, Mozambique to Madagascar. As such he has become some-what of a location expert.

This life’s journey has taken me to nearly 100 countries, exhausted over a dozen passports and enriched my life beyond my wildest dreams.

Aligning his philosophy of life, surf adventure and exploration with like minded companies saw relationships built with brands as the Surf Industry grew. Rip Curls ‘The Search’, Billabongs ‘The Odyssey’ and Quiksilvers 'The Crossing’ campaigns which afforded him the opportunity to take his travels to the ends of the earth.

With a formal photographic background from RMIT University in Melbourne Australia and assisting legendary Magnum photographer Burt Glinn in New York, Ted’s style has a solid technical foundation. Combine this with the influence of photojournalism – capturing the integrity of a moment via the truth on an image.

As a professional photographer for 40 years Ted’s commercial clients range from Apple, Rip Curl, Speedo, Red Bull, Nikon, Quiksilver, Zoggs, Billabong, BMW and lifestyle brand Patagonia to name but a few. With experience as a waterman from years of photographing in surf in the impact zone, Ted now translates this knowledge to abstract water photography, fashion, advertising and editorial assignments in and around the water.
