Surf Photographers are Struggling

“There are less people these days on the north shore shooting and the surfing industry is not doing so well… i think they party too much and never value the people that gives their industry credibilities… surfers and photographers… today its bitting them in the arse…

Lots of surf photographers are struggling because they are yes men and never sees where they want to be in 20 years they just want to make a quick buck… it’s always been the senior guys that fucked it all up (not the young guys) (here is where the sender put a list of 5 veteran surfing photographers names in which we have chose not to disclose) i heard “blank” now has gone into wedding so is “blank” but all these guys have always said yes for the small money even “blank”
Sad but true” – Former Surf Photographer
