The_Nights_of_Our_Lives_-TSP009

So begins my new obsession with Australian photographer Tim Swallow. Photography is not just his job, it's his life. His “Peter Pan Syndrome” fuels his ongoing excitement for anything involving surfing, skating and music.

Barbie is a blogger, and Snoop Dogg is a painter. “For many years I’ve always felt like painting was something that I wanted to do, but I never had time to do,” Snoop explains. “Painting gives me an emotion like no other.
