Surf photography, like any other action is all about movement. It's a racing barrel, swooping carve or flying air. But while we're constantly trying to freeze a single moment in time within one frame on our cameras, we're often missing out on the great opportunity to actually capture some more of the movement other than just 1/1000 of a second of it. The speed blur allows us…Continue
Backlit is the new frontlit. Most photographers start out being taught that the sun or light source should be behind you - shinning directly onto your subject. Hence the term 'frontlit'. But as nice as this looks from time to time and in some necessary situations, it really is the standard and not nearly as interesting or exciting as it could be. Photography after all is…Continue

It is not so much about the surfer as it is the wave. Yes, surf photography is the art of capturing someone riding a wave, but it's the wave that is the real star of the show more often than not - especially when it comes to wide-angle water photography. Surfers want to imagine themselves on that wave or in that barrel, so the job of any surf photographer is to make the wave…Continue

The kind of thing we’re looking for, as demonstrated by Mr Slater and his little HD friend. Image © kellyslater / instagram
Since Zag launched in 1976, the cover shot has been our Holy Grail, a place reserved for the best of the best in action and image quality. And now we want to plaster you all over it.
Together with GoPro, we’re blowing the field wide open for the Zag GoPro Cover Me contest and inviting any surfer to take a crack at…

There are few things better in life than getting barreled. Being encased inside a tube while the very ocean folds over you and sends you screaming towards the shoulder. It's the one photograph every surfer wants of themselves, and the first photograph every surf…

Pure South Africa beauty.
The lineup shot will always be the single most powerful and timeless frame of surf photography shootable. If there is one photograph every surfer wants to see or to show their friends when they score, it's the lineup.
So what makes a great…

I've probably been asked this more than any other question as a surf photographer. That and do I get to surf when on location in exotic countries? If you were also wondering this, well the answer is yes, but only if I have the goods in hand and it's one of the last days of the trip. Work comes first; it's one of the first steps of being a professional.…Continue
Last week we discussed saliva and keeping our wide-angle ports droplet-free. This week it's all about dry ports and keeping those 70-200mm photographs crisp and sharp.
A few years ago I made the exciting purchase of a 70-200mm port and subsequent housing. After years of only shooting wide angle surf photographs from the water, I was as excited as a cat with…
Ok so I know it's not Friday, but better late than never right? This week I thought we would tackle that pesky issue of the dreaded water droplet sticking to your lens/port during water photography, and how to promote a quick, smooth and efficient water runoff. Whether you have a professional fish-eye waterhousing or a beginner compact water-camera, if you don't know…Continue
