Photog War May Have Just Come To An End


Pitiless: Mike Balzer VS Steve Sherman (Part Three) – Quote taken from Beach Grit
“I feel it’s lame that you solely shoot “mainly” in the VIP area of elite surf contests. You get a VIP pass to that area that other shooters cannot get. Therefore you have a HUGE advantage over them. They can’t even get near those subjects to shoot to even compete with your shots. Some of the shots you get are good for what they are but they are not surfing on waves in the water. Do you get that? You really are a one-trick-pony that sets your digital camera on black & white and basically fires away.” – Kaipo Gomes or Mike Balzer (we have lost track of who is writing what)

Dear Aspiring Photographers,
Don’t listen to anyone when it comes to how you shoot and what you shoot (unless your a paid shooter then of course you will have to listen to that person who is cutting your check). In the surfing world if it makes you happy to only shoot from the land or water then do it – their are no rules! Always remember to just have fun shooting.
