Tony “Harro” Harrington has been capturing breathtaking images of the very extremes of snow and surf around the globe for more than 25 inspirational years.
An adventurer, filmer, photographer, skier, surfer and experience-seeker Harro sets out on custom-made adventures with his camera in tow. You’ll find him carving first descents on the massive peaks of Alaska and Greenland or searching out 50-foot waves in remote corners of the world’s oceans. There are few photographers who have pushed the limits of this realm as Harro has in surf or snow; he is the only one who solidly masters both.
Over 150 magazine covers and the numerous global awards for his work are testament to the quality of the work he creates. These images have only been accessible to leading magazines, until now.
Growing up on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia is where Harro developed a passion for the ocean at Wamberal and continued to surf and compete through to early adulthood. He tossed in his job as an electrician not long afterwards to head to the snowfields for a season. It turned into a lifelong connection to the mountains and has seen him spend countless winters seeking powder days from Australia to Austria and up to Alaska where he immersed himself in the big mountain and extreme free riding scene.
Now he balances his love of surf and snow through his specialist company Pure Adventure Productions that divides his time and energies between the beach and the glaciers.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking a moment to browse the photos, films and stories. I hope these brief moments in time might spark a memory or an idea, whether you also love to ski or surf or just notice the beauty and magic in the world around us.
For years I’ve wanted to get some of my huge collection of shots free from their dusty hard drives and out where they can be shared and enjoyed. This is just the start and I am excited to build on these collections.
I hope you enjoy looking through the galleries and I hope you find something you’d like to hang on your wall or gift to a friend. If you are hunting for something special drop me an email and we’d be happy to help find something just right.
