A different visual experience – that’s what innovative photographers strive for. It’s why, housing in hand, they swim deeper into the pit at Pipe. Why they sacrifice flesh and bone and equipment to hang under a speeding surfer’s rail. Why they scramble over coral and hike over jungle-choked headlands in search of a unique vantage point. It’s why they tinker with their equipment, build $5,000 housings, mount cameras on poles, speed around on skis, and sync remote flashes after dark.
They want to capture surfing as we’ve never seen it before, and really, that’s all the following 3D feature is about—experimentation. It’s just an exercise, an attempt to take surf photos beyond the flat field of a page. Hope you enjoy. Click here to check out the September Issue Preview.
