The Death of Surf Photography | Stop worrying + learn to love the Internet?
Is surf photography dead or just flipped upside down by the Internet? STAB magazine aimed to answer this question by talking to a panel of master photographers from all classes including Peter Boskovic, Morgan Maassen, Ryan Miller, Matt O’Brien, and Leroy Bellet.
“The internet has changed everything, and whether you’re a liker or a hater completely depends on what the www’s done to your personal brand. Instagram has killed the surf photo in so many respects. Every time a swell hits a high profile spot with pro surfers in attendance, there’s lenses pointed at it from sun up. Little is missed in modern surfing. But what does this mean to those who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of capturing one of the world’s most photogenic activities?”
So…. is it dead?
This is a rare one.
