[PUBLISHED WORK] Zigzag Surfing Magazine Issue 37.1

So totally and utterly stoked to have another shot printed in South African surfing magazine, Zigzag. And even more stoked that it's in the issue with SA's female surfing sensation, Bianca Buitendag, gracing the cover. Bianca just made the 2013 World Tour - really looking forward to watching her progress in the new year. Get your copy of Zag to check it out! Thanks again to the Zag crew for choosing to run my line-up shot (featured on the right, terrible scan quality, sorry!). 

P.S. This shot also won Surfline's October Photo Challenge - thank you so much to everyone who spontaneously voted for my image. Whoever you are, you rock! Read my interview here

Life in Liquid

I've been putting in some good time in the water lately in a real effort to improve my confidence and skills behind the lens in the water. Every time I swim out I'm reminded of just how challenging water photography is, and each time I have a renewed sense of awe for guys who do this in bigger surf on a regular basis.  Water photography is scary, exciting, challenging, amazing and totally out of my comfort zone, but I love it. Mastering it is definitely my goal for 2013. A special thanks to my personal lifeguards, Nick & Cameron, who help me through the bigger sets and keep me pushing myself in the water (And who voluntarily go over the falls in a quest to show me that it's really not that bad...thanks guys!). Here are some photographs from the weekend (tips and feedback very welcome!).
