Our Story

Originating in the small coastal town of Coral Bay on the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef; 'Protect What You Love' was founded in 2017 by ocean photographers Tom Cannon & Sam Lawrence. Hailing from different coasts in Australia our paths crossed through our love for the ocean. 

Through our photography we aim to show the raw beauty of a world both admired and misunderstood by many people around the world. Using our ocean experiences, we have drawn inspiration from our encounters with different marine life and interpreted it into the design of our clothing.

Protect What you Love blends simplistic hand drawn designs of iconic marine animals, with a profound message that resonates with all who share a love with the ocean, and ultimately want to help protect it.
