I’ve always been a man of few words… (That’s a pun, I lost my voice this weekend.)
Here some of my favourite shots from this month. If you were there, thanks for being a part of it. Everyone in my life rules, keep up the good work guys.

April 2015

With summer right around the corner, everyone’s getting ready for the madness to start. Hundreds of seasonal workers and thousands of tourists showing up to town. The Rip Curl Pro is next month, so that should be a great way to kick off the season. Not only will I be shooting the entire event but I’ll also be competing in the Men’s Am (wish me luck) along with being invited to the Pro Photo Showdown, which is a huge honor. Speaking of which I should probably start working on my slideshow. Dobis never ends.

In-water surf photography is quite the challenge (and work-out), I’m going to need more practice.

Yesterday we went out for our first in-water photoshoot!
I borrowed my roommate’s Olympus shock/water proof (point & shoot) camera. Tied it to my wrist with dental floss (tres professional), slapped on some goofy looking goggles, jumped in the water and tried not to get run over – last thing I need is some fins to the face. The quality of this camera is quite poor, but it gave me the chance to see how hard it really is to be a surf photographer. Positioning is incredibly important. Not to mention the timing, since this camera has a terrible delay that I had to try and compensate for. But it all worked out in the end – though I did at one point actually lose the camera… Maybe next time I’ll use something a bit stronger than floss (sorry Kelsey).
