Jack English builds another website, Surfing Photographer.
So as if you’re not busy enough you go and have Surfing Photographer built
Yeah, I wanted to have a site where the everyday person (surfer) can find this site and make it as clear as day that they can hire me to shoot surfing photos of them rather it be regional, national or worldwide.
So if I am some amateur surfer you will take surf photos of me
Yes. I will take photos of you know matter how good or bad of a surfer you are. I am not the one to judge you on your performance, but I am there to take the highest quality surfing action photos of you.
How much do you charge
The price is $250.00 for the first hour and each additional hour is $150.00 with a minimum of 2 hours. For water shots it is double these prices.
How much do you charge for a destination surf trip, for example if there is a group of people that will be doing a boat trip in the Mentawai Islands
For destination surf trips the pricing always varies on how many surfers will be going.
You would have to call or email me the complete details of the trip and I will provide you with a price.
So you not only can shoot local, but anywhere in the world.
That is right. I have done photo shoots for people in Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Bali, Mentawai Islands, and more.
How will you know when the surf will be good
I leave this up to the surfer. You pick the day and time, but I will make suggestions where and when is the best place to go for photos. The reason I leave this up to the surfer is I want them to be happy with the conditions they chose. It is there photo shoot and in the end I want them to be stoked.
How many photos will you take
I shoot every wave you take off on. If you get 2 waves or 200 waves I shoot it all.
When will I get a disk of the photos
I will have my laptop with me and immediately once the photo shoot is done I will burn you a disk of EVERY photo taken right then and there.
So you must be good knowing you have worked with the best in the world from Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Kolohe Andino, Mick Fanning, Taj Burrow and the rest of the great surfers out there.
I am honored that I have worked with them all and I enjoy it every chance I get, but as a surfer myself I just want to offer my photo services to other people the chance to have a professional surfing photographer to take there photo as I would love if someone would photograph me surfing. =)
