Dropped It All To Choose A Dream

 

Several years ago John Barton (@johnnyjungle) left a cushy job in advertising back in his homeland of Western Australia and traded it all in for a camera and a ticket to the Mentawai islands in Indonesia.  Fast forward to now and Johnny just took home the peoples choice award at the Follow the Light contest put on by the Follow The Light Foundation in honor of legendary surf photographer Larry "Flame" Moore.  We not only consider Johnny a part of the family, but we're pretty inspired by his story.  Enjoy this little clip on Johnny's path to surf photography and his inspiring work.
