For the past 22 years, I’ve photographed waves, surfers, and swimmers at Bondi Beach, Australia, during sunrise. Turning that photography into a business with my partner and commercial director, Debbie—including a newsletter, gallery, creative agency, and lifestyle brand—has allowed us to bring a bit of that beach lifestyle to hundreds of thousands of people everyday.
Beautiful sunrise photos may sound simple, but in reality we run a pretty complex operation at Aquabumps, with decades of photos to archive and multiple channels running content to reach our followers. We use Dropbox to organize our workflow, foster open and quick communication, and grow our business. Here’s a look at how it all gets done.
