Featured Photographer: Morning Bondi

2 March 2014

Morning Bondi is the photo diary of Amaury Tréguer, a French photographer who made Bondi Beach his home since September 2010.

Amaury never misses a morning down the beach – everyday of the year he wakes up at 5:30am to exercise with his friends and capture the essence of Bondi with his camera. His pictures focus on Bondi’s beautiful sunrises, local characters and any other interesting events and activities that cross his path. “Bondi Beach is such a cool and vibrant place to live and there is always something happening, even at 6 am,” he says.

“Basically, I started training down on the beach two years ago to prepare for an obstacle course and every morning I would take photos of the sunrise with my phone and share it on Facebook with my friends. After noticing that my friends were actually sharing the photos with other friends, I decided to start the Morning Bondi Facebook Page.”

“My routine is pretty basic but it keeps me motivated and helps me cope with another busy day at work. Wake-up before sunrise, walk to the beach, take a couple of sunrise shots, train with my mates (running, boxing), take a few more pics while running, a quick dip in the water and finish off with a great coffee.”

Amaury lives and breathes everything Bondi. When asked if he would ever go back to Paris or live anywhere else, he replies: “For now, I’m way too happy here. Try a Morning Bondi session with me and you will understand why.”
