Pathfinders Byron Bay Breakfasts and Nights are designed to inspire you for a successful and significant life, connecting locals with industry and marketplace leaders.
From creatives, entrepreneurs, employees and employers, Pathfinders is for people from all walks of life.

At the age of 18 Tyge moved to Sydney and entered the world of marketing and advertising. After 5 years of city life he decided to make a sea change, and 7 years ago started filmmaking, shortly after his award-winning filmmaker father, Bob Plasto passed away.
Bob Plasto, an internationally renowned film-maker, made more than 75 films in 35 years. His work included ‘A Town like Alice’ and ‘Journey into an American Spy Base’. It was his passing that lit a fire in Tyge to create motion picture imagery.
Working in the surf industry as a Marketing Manager he commenced filming surfers and models, which quickly escalated into a full time career. Tyge’s first surf movie was titled ‘Beneath’, a 30 minute psychedelic surf escapade with a rebellious edge to modern society, that gained worldwide attention.
He was then quickly hired on long-term contracts with big name surf brands to create their web and social based media requirements.
Most recently Tyge created a 30-minute documentary ‘Chasing the Shot’ for the world’s biggest action sports content creators, Red Bull Media House.
Tyge often travels to surf destination such as Hawaii, Fiji, Indonesia, Tahiti and Australia wide. Tahiti would rank as Tyge’s favourite destination for shooting, with its incredible, and dramatic emotive light, and clear translucent water, backdropped by huge mountains and jungle.
“My favourite time of the day to shoot is either first light or last light and generally high speed and with a long fast lens. My goal is to continually push action media with innovative angles and interesting use of light, foreground and background.”
When he is not working Tyge often travels with his family, goes surfing and plays soccer. As for the best piece of advice he’s ever heard? “Always go the distance for the shot, and never compromise on your version of perfection.”
