  • How to become a surf photographer, How to take surf photography - Tim McKenna
    very specialized nowadays and it would be impossible to get a specific formation for each field The more you know about photographic techniques the more you will be able to branch out and be creative down the line You can learn these through photography books a photography course or working as an assistant Studying pictures in the leading magazines and trying to recreate them can prove helpful The hardest part is to gain experience in all the different shooting conditions The only way to gain this experience is to shoot a lot Working as an assistant for a few months or a few years is the best way to gain knowledge at no cost Otherwise you must shoot a lot and finance everything yourself until someone finds you are good enough to be paid for it With Digital cameras although the investment is fairly hefty once you have the equipment you can shoot as much as you want and experiment at no cost Start by taking your mates on a trip and creating a story SHOWING YOUR WORK Once you are sure that the pictures you are taking are of a good enough level to be published and used professionally you can start to submit them to magazines photo agencies or brands Hopefully this will put you in contact with better locations and better athletes Try and create something different so that your pictures stand out in the editing rooms ETHICS Get up early and work hard Surfing photography is no golden retreat and to make ends meet be prepared to make a few sacrifices and live a nomadic life The buy out rates are very low compared to other industries although expenses are much higher A cover with the highest selling surf magazines will land you just over 1000

    are usually custom made to fit a standard professional camera such as the Nikon F5 or F100 or the Canon EOS 1 V or EOS 3 They are equipped with interchangeable ports allowing adaptation of the housings to the different sizes of lens used on these standard cameras Housings are now available for digital cameras enabling the photographer to shoot over 200 pictures without reloading These images are usually taken just above the water level close to the impact zone using swim fins for easier and faster positioning and a wetsuit for warmth This exercise can be risky in big waves or over razor sharp coral reef Knowing that a cubic metre of water weighs one ton the devastating power of a pitching lip fuelled by a long swell line hitting a shelf can easily be imagined FISH EYES LENS 14 mm 15 mm and 16 mm fish eye lenses are the most commonly used for inside the tube shots or close up manoeuvres such as aerials cutbacks or re entries The difficulty lies in the positioning The photographer must anticipate the wave formation and the path of the surfer so as to be as close as possible to the surfer at the most critical part of the ride With these focal lengths the surfer is only a few feet or a even a centimetre away from the camera It is therefore possible to take a picture from inside the same tube that the surfer is riding These images tend to be the most spectacular since the viewer is positioned at the very heart of the action These lenses are also used for underwater photography The unusual lighting and the magical sub aquatic atmosphere place the surfer and his medium in a totally different perspective NORMAL TO MEDIUM TELEPHOTO LENS If the photographers cannot get close enough to his subject for various reasons wave power rip contest rules filming crowds etc he can shoot from the water with anything up to a 300 mm lens The low angle makes for impressive images A body board or air mat can be used to gain a slightly higher vantage point thus eliminating the chop when using a telephoto lens BOARD CAMERA A water housing can be attached to a board in order to get a very subjective view of a specific ride These housings are equipped with a remote control that can be activated from a boat or the beach a few metres away These images are very time consuming and risky for the camera equipment and the surfer The results however are often stunning BOARDS OTHER WATERCRAFT Another popular solution is the use of boats outriggers canoes or jet skis In these situations the photographer uses a watertight casing for security and shoots with a telephoto zoom lens such as a 80 200 2 8 zoom or a 300 2 8 lens This enables the photographer to get closer to the action and helps him to get an angle looking straight
