Morning folks

I am very curious to know what the feel is from surfers toward people shooting from the beach/pier? I have so far only shot pictures of people I know personally so every session has been under consent. However I had a moment the other day where I had a friend framed in the water waiting for a set - the guy next to him raised his arm out the water and flipped me the bird and for a good long while. I chuckled and went about my business.

Should I be concerned over confrontation? Am I stepping over a line?

personally i love people taking shots of me especially videos..makes me learn from my mistakes..but maby some surfers might think you'll clame it to be someone els or

Thanks Schalk, thats a great perspective. The guys I take pictures of have made similar comments on how pictures help them see themselves in a new light. In particular - how much space they think they had to work with when turning, and then seeing how much  more space they really had.

im also into surfing photography and just waiting for my camera to come!!

Hey Schalk, did your camera finally come? What did you get?

I have found it to be a positive thing, never had anyone not wanting to have their shot taken, and have often had guys come up to me when they got out to ask if I got any shots of them, and they are always willing to buy a sick shot.

You are responsible for the photos and videos you submit to Shot Bru. If you didn’t take the shot yourself, or make the video, get permission from the owner first. If you’ve got your eyes on a Shot Bru prize or a spot in the pages of the main mag, please upload to Shot Bru before sending your photos on Facebook and other surfing websites cyber rounds. Fresh photos get priority for prizes and print. Finally, by loading image(s) onto Shot Bru you are granting Zigzag permission to feature your image(s) in the magazine, on the website and across our social media platforms free of charge.

Waveski, SUP, etc shots regularly get deleted due to a technical glitch. This glitch does not seem to affect surfing shots, which was designed for. We are having our developer look into the problem.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are posting a pic of a secret / semi-secret spot or a sensitive location, DO NOT say where it is. Shot Bru is for sharing photos and stoke. Not for exposing secret spots. The administrator reserves the right to change the description or nuke the shot if you don’t comply.

If you are going to upload photos of secret or very sensitive surf spots. Be vague about the location, or better yet flat out lie. We're okay with either.
