Although this is a still image my purpose for being at the event was to shoot video. My roots in photography come from editing together skateboarding videos of my friends, shortly after that I picked up my family’s camera and fell in love with how I could capture a moving, living, breathing moment in a single frame. I believe video is the future of my career and of many other photographers, even though I will always love still photography.
Recently a teacher of mine sent me a link to a photo contest on Photo.net. I have always been interested in entering my images into more photo contests, I have always heard you can make good money and get tons of free stuff. This is the first contest I have ever entered and am really hoping to get some sort of recognition from it. Both of these images i took sitting on the Cliff at Ho’okipa while photographing Kody Kerbox surfing. I shot both images with my 300mm f/4, i bought the lens specifically for the trip and would love to make some money off them!
