Photo Live Expo 2016 - The Endless Summer
Surfers are tough people and surfing shots are tough to get right - we all try them but you need experience and planning to succeed. Come hear how Russell has done just that for the last 15 years with this fascinating subject.
Western Australians have a particularly good resource for this sort of photography...and they have the glorious freedom to pursue the sport nearly everywhere. Not the middle of the wheatbelt at seeding time, mind, but in the places where the rocks end and the water starts. Russell can make it abundantly clear from the images he shows that the old standard of sitting on the rocks and looking west and wiping sand out of the filter has long been surpassed - now you can get right out there and hurt along with the surfers.
Of course the gear to get hurt with has changed over the ages - the boards have evolved from wooden things the size of the NIMITZ to extremely small organic plastic shapes hat an just barely drown you. The photo gear as well is leaping ahead - the old 16mm camera with the Switar lens is now the action cam or the DSLR with the stunning tele-zoom. Camera Electronic can supply them all so when Russell has fired you up with enthusiasm, come out to the trade tables and see how much trouble you can get yourself into.
And for the folks who saw The Endless Summer when it was brand new...there will be priority seats down the front so you can hear the speaker.
