What you'll do

This experience is designed to bring you professional surf photos from the water and lifestyle shots at the beach. Water photography brings a unique angle to your surfing and is a full time passion and career for me. To begin with I'll meet you at the arranged beach and give you a brief rundown of where the best place will be to surf, if there are any dangers to look out for (rips etc) and what I'm looking for when taking photos. We'll then head out together and I'll take photos and videos of all your waves. Lines of communication are open the whole time in the water so we can get the best possible outcome from your surfing. Once the session has ended I'll process the shoot and send you a download link with your colour corrected photos and videos. Guests can expect a gallery of 30-80 photos and 5-20 videos to be supplied to each surfer. Also, for a small price an A2 print will be supplied of your best shot - you can let me know which one you want printed or leave the choice to me and I'll base the decision on what shot we would run in the magazine! This can either be sent to you via mail or pickup from Currumbin within 3 days of the session.

Andy

I'm the founder of 18seconds Surf Magazine on the Gold Coast with 12 years experience in water surf photography. I currently work with the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre as their water photographer on their surfing program. I recently spoke at a surf photography workshop about the difference in taking water photos compared to land photos. I am very familiar with the coastline and what conditions are best for surf. On any given day I know where the best surf will be and what time will be best for photos. Jump on www.18seconds.com.au and Instagram: @18secondsmagazine for more.

We can go as far as Byron Bay for the best waves!
