Peter Solness Photographer.

Peter Solness was the brother of Shark Island charger Geoff. Around the mid to late 70s while Soulman (Geoff) pulled into the barrels, Peter was shooting water shots of the action and quickly built a name for himself as one of the best on the Southside. His pics had an artistic side to them which made his work standout from other photographers and he  regularly featured in Surfing World. The photo below was a night session taken at Sandshoes with Banksy, Dave Shaw and Greg Melhuish. Peter was using a Nikonos with a waterproogf flash to get these unique shots back then.
