Conceived by Photographer Ming Nomchong as a creative outlet for her personal work, The Drifter was born from a love of surfing, travelling and a life by the sea. It has now gathered a popular following of like minded salty sea folk from all around the world and is a space that celebrates living  “a salty life”.

Through Ming’s kaleidoscopic images of fashion, coastal living, and the ocean, The Drifter tells stories of ocean folk and the salty lifestyles they lead. Covering all aspects of our coastal lifestyle, The Drifter is full of articles, editorials and journeys covering surfing, lifestyle, fashion and ocean conservation.

Ming shoots fashion, surf & lifestyle imagery for a wide client base and her portfolio can be checked out here: www.mingnomchong.com
