Dean & Julie’s Wedding

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on October 26, 2008










The wedding in the park at Cabarita and the reception at Bilinudgel was for all of the two busloads of guests a full day as interesting as the personalities of the bride and groom. Dean & Julie wanted me to photograph not only the wedding but some of the often overlooked aspects of an important celebration. This is a small selection of photos taken over 11 hours that reflects another view of their wonderful event.

Rod Hynd’s new board

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on


Rod recently bought in a Skip Frye Diamond model that over the years had finally become so compressed that he needed a replica made. Custom shaping these boards is a pleasure as it not only reinforces the whole concept of custom shaping but also allows me to revisit some of the classic yet timeless designs from some of the worlds most respected shapers. The original can now be retired as a valuable collectors item with a great history and the new one can be surfed and enjoyed as the original was.

The Road from Manly to Bondi

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on


This “Organic Pop” style which I have developed over the last few years is a modern twist to the dreamtime method of lifting above the landscape and viewing places in my memory and the roads that connect them. Acrylic on canvas. A series of paintings of the east coast is developing with Noosa, several of the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Crescent Head and Sydney Harbour already completed. Sunshine Coast and the northern beaches of Sydney are on the drawing board.
