Photographer Peter ‘Joli’ Wilson
Discovered at the Point Break location of Bells Beach, Torquay at the end of the 60’s, Peter ‘Joli’ Wilson snapped up a reputation for capturing iconic surf images.
In 1972 Peter got his first published image ‘Narrabeen’s Col Smith’ at the Bells Beach Easter Surfing contest and his exposure increased from there.
Hence, over the last four decades, ‘Joli’ images have been published in countless surf publications all over the world.
“For the past 20 years I’ve travelled the world capturing the world’s oceans, landscapes, beaches, surfing action, cultures and lifestyles.”
In the process Joli Productions has developed an extensive Stock Photo Library.
“My youthful enthusiasm developed into a lifelong passion. ”
