Biochemistry; a compound which exists in the body as a euphoric neurotransmitter, it is naturally produced by the brain to create happiness, heightened energy, pleasure and pain. Origin; from dop(a) + amine (a related substance)

Release: When you are attracted to someone your brain releases the drug dopamine giving the same reaction that one gets from thrill seeking, sex, music, humanitarianism, surfing and skating to name a few. Behind all these lurks a brain chemical called dopamine.

Dopamine, ist ein Teil der Werbekampagne von Insight. Wo Steve Gorrow und Fraser Anderson ihr surf- und skateboardteam einsetzen um in einen anderen Lebenskontext zu treten und dem ganzen eine andere Dosis Kreativität zu geben, da surfen sie über rote Wellen, über Friedhöfe, sehen wir motor-cycle riding femme fatales oder bekannte skatespots, die im skateboardfall in eine surreale Umgebung gesetzt werden……dass alles kitzelt an unserem Bewusstsein in Bezug auf Dinge, die wir kennen und können.

is also part of the promotional campaign by Insight. Where Steve Gorrow and Fraser Anderson uses their surf and skateboardteam to get in a different context of life and to give the whole another type of creativity. We see how they surf the waves of red, of cemeteries, we see motor-cycle riding femme fatales or known skatespots, in skateboardfall made in a surreal environment …… everything that tickles our awareness of things that we know and can.


is surfing’s most in demand photographer.

His experimental approach to never-before-seen angles, themes, and equipment coupled with his monstrous work ethic makes Dustin Humphrey the most important surf photographer since Art Brewer. Over the past four years, Dustin’s work hasn’t only transformed the magazines he works with into category leaders, but it’s reinvigorated the entire world of surf photojournalism.

Dustin has led surfing back to ultra-exotic travel. His forays into Indonesia rainforests, sri Lanka´s Tamil coast, & the vast emptiness of Kenya´s wilderness have restoked the passion for discovery among surfers & fellow members of the media. On a cinematic front, other career highlights include his contribution to Taylor Steele´s iconic surf film, Sipping Jetsteams.

Dustin’s work has been featured in dozens of surf and action-sports lifestyle magazines around the world, including: TransWorld Surf Magazine (USA), Surfing Magazine (USA), Surf Europe (England), The Surfers Journal (USA), The Surfers Journal (Europe), Surf Session (France), Surf Trip (Italy), Fluir (Brazil), Surf Time (Indonesia), Action Sports Asia (Singapore), Waves (Australia), Tracks (Australia), Australian Surfing Life (Australia), Paper Plane (Australia), and Monster Children (Australia).
