Onne van der Wal
For more than 25 years, Onne has traveled between tropical destinations and icy reaches of the globe in search of breathtaking photo opportunities. He mixes scenes from the nautical world with dramatic backdrops to create his inspiring images, countless numbers of which have graced the pages of SAILING Magazine.Formerly a professional yacht racer, Onne (pronounced On-ah) found his passion for photography while competing in an around-the-world yacht race. Using every opportunity to capture on film the incredible action of a trans-Atlantic crossing, he specialized in dangling high atop a mast some 100 feet above the rising swell. It was this dramatic work that launched his successful marine photography career.
