Surf Photographer Peter “Joli” Wilson Get’s Called Out

Comment posted on Surfer Mag’s website here

Peter Wilson is by far the most dedicated photographer who follows as many CT stops around the world along with his wife where many of his peers have always wondered how he has pulled this off financially. Peter has no backing from any surf magazine nor brand.

A person by the name Steve Briggs (most likely a photographer using a disguised name) calls out Peter on Surfer’s website underneath his images from his most recent trip to Hossegor France for the Quiksilver Pro CT.

Dear Peter “Joli” Wilson photographer to the stars,
How in the world are you able to travel the world in this economy, shoot at the most expensive locations pay for hotel, airfare, rental car, food, libations, etc. and then get paid $20.00 per photo for a grand total of $260.00 for these 13 photos Surfer.com ran on the France contest? Every normal, rational, intelligent person would say what the F—? Why do you still do it when you are clearly losing money. Nice photos by the way but that is hardly the point. It’s a sad time in the digital world for “Surf” photogs. Good luck Joli.
