The Right featured in One Shot documentary

Albany Advertiser

A documentary detailing the work of a WA photographer featuring infamous Walpole surf break The Right will screen on ABC tonight.

The short documentary follows Margaret River photographer Russell Ord on his quest to capture one photograph that describes his life.

Ord says he does not want to be defined by other people’s actions.

"I do not want to be remembered for just being in the channel at the right time and right place capturing the surfer’s wave of a lifetime,” he said.

“Because in the end, that’s easy.

“As a photographer I want to remember myself for taking that “one” photo – not because of the surfer’s name or reputation, but because of the position I put myself in to capture the moment in time.”

One Shot will play on ABC HD tonight at 10pm.
