Daniel Russo

Photographer, Hawaii

Our new profile series shines a light on the remarkable lives of the people who live in their Blundstones.

If you’ve glanced a surf magazine over the past decade then you’ve surely seen Daniel Russo’s work. The Hawaii-born water photographer is behind some of the most breathtaking shots published on print. He’s surfed with legends, brushed with danger, and shown us all the view from inside world-class barrels. With the spontaneous nature of his work, Daniel relies on his gear to work without fail so he never misses a shot. And whether he’s capturing the perfect break in the waves or collecting fruit around his land, Blundstone goes everywhere Daniel’s life takes him.  


“I’m not sure I necessarily chose to do this, but more that it kind of chose me, or that my environment pushed me to follow this particular path" - Daniel

When you’re in the ocean, you’re weightless, your mind isn’t distracted . . . all the obstacles you face on land, the day-to-day stress, that’s all eliminated when you’re out in the water”
 - Daniel

A lot of the equipment that I’ve gathered over the years and continue to use to this day, it’s been equipment that I trust and that I’m confident is going to help me get the job done.” - Daniel
