Beach photos are a dime a dozen on Instagram, but photographer Grey Malin serves up spectacular pictures of beaches and pools that turn the genre into art.
Malin’s aerial shots of vacationers can make beach scenes look like playful, colourful wallpaper patterns or storybook illustrations. He even hops in a helicopter sometimes to get his photos.
Malin’s most popular works feature aerial beach scenes, quirky animals, and a smorgasbord of colours.
Let’s dive in to see what makes Malin so successful.
This one is from a series done at Congee Beach, located in Sydney. Malin's knack for framing wave patters is uncanny.
His focus on brightly coloured and uniquely shaped umbrellas embraces the whimsical side of beach life.
Malin uses balloons for surreal shots of oceans and pools, as seen in the next six photos from the ongoing 'Up and Away' collection.
'Balloons are a universal symbol of celebration, happiness and joy,' Grey Malin wrote on his website when announcing the series.
From Instagram to your bedroom wall, Malin's beach photos can transport anyone right into summer-mode.
Naturally, many of Malin's iconic photos have been turned into merchandise for the summer-lovers of the world.
The phone cases are a top seller. Who wouldn't want a little splash of summer on their phone at all times?
