Hey jack! Im (name removed), I’ve been wanting to become a profetional
photographer for quite some time, just like your self. Could you help
me out with any tips on how i should step into the game?
THANK YOU ENGLISH!
I am assuming you want to be a professional surf photographer? To get into the surfing photography world is really quite easy. Show up to the beach and shoot the surfers. If surfing isn’t your thing then whatever it is just throw yourself into that industry and surround yourself with those people and or things. To make a full time living at photography is really difficult these days so I would suggest a second job to pay your bills. Best of luck – Jack
No ma’am, it’s more like 8-10 feet! Standing on the beach at The Wedge listening to people’s comments is pretty hysterical, as one lady insisted the surf was 40-50 feet.
The following photos were all taken yesterday from around 7-10 in the morning.

OC Register reporter Laylan Connelly for the interview – “So why is it you only catch one wave and call it quits when black ball doesn’t come up for another two hours?”

The waves we’re really slim pickings for the surfer’s who chose to wait outside for the bigger sets

Thank you for making this drop Spencer as it made our trip up there worth it!

Did anyone notice the over sized Red Bull container inside Julian’s hand at this years Nike US Open alongside Monster Engergy sponsored surfer Miguel Pupo (with no Monster bottle of any sort). We we’re told by an agent at the Wasserman group Nascar drivers get paid every time they take a drink out of there drink sponsored bottle (but of course that is on a whole nother league of money)
Julian actually lifted the bottle to his mouth twice to make RedBull and his agent happy (and his pocket book)
