GET TO KNOW... DIGBY
What do you study and what do you do? I study Industrial Design in Sydney and I take photos and I go surfing. What are you currently obsessed with? Probably guitar at the moment, i've been playing it alot. I just bought a new one (just then). Who or what inspires you? Umm I like really good photographers, likeTrent Mitchell (@trentmitchellphoto) and Woody Gooch (@woodygphoto)- I like those guys. Other than that, the ocean. What has made you happy today? I went for a really good surf, and then I bought a guitar, and I got a wetsuit, and it's pretty sunny and nice - I don't think anything bad has happened today. Oh and I listened to Like A Version on Triple J this morning. What is your go-to adventure snack? I've been doing alot of honey, banana sandwhiches - and sometimes peanut butter when I have it. Pretty good, high energy. Would you say you have a relationship with nature?I do like nature alot. It always makes me happy, if I am unhappy it will always cheer me up, if I have any problems i'll just go and take photos in nature, go surfing and then nothings a problem anymore. It's like a good dog, always there. Ultimate travel destination? I want to go to Cuba, in South America, and Peru. (Maybe i'll get there next year). Ultimate road trip artist? My favourite artist is Ween, they are an old- experimental rock band. They do funny songs but it's good music. I like new music so I always listen to Triple J. What would be your dream job? Work somewhere where it feels good, nothing in particular. Just work a bit, surf a bit - a stay at home dad would be good. What achievements are you proud of? I am proud of when I went through the French Canals last year, ah getting my first photo published in Surfing World magazine, thats about it really. Do you have a most embarrassing moment? Maybe that time I got hit in the face with the soccer ball, and so I had one huge pupil, the other one was tiny and I looked so weird - then I went to play basket ball and I had to wear these squash goggles so they didn't hit me in the eye.
