We’re at the halfway mark of the 2019 #SVPHOTOCOMP and things are really starting to heat up. We’ve selected some images that have caught our attention in the second week of the comp, the talent pool is crazy.
Panamuna is an independent surf label where protecting our oceans is at the heart of everything we do. Using sustainable and ethical practices in the manufacturing of our gear, our aim is to make people conscious of the impact they have on the environment due to the choices they make.
Wowee, where do I start. Every year this photo comp gets bigger and bigger, the talent pool in the SV community is incredible. You should all be very proud.
Having grown up landlocked with the nearest shoreline at a considerable distance I guess my introduction to saltwatery spheres, coastal culture, oceanic occultism and the infinite joys of the sea can hardly be called an intuitive act.
TEE-PEE is an art based surf label reigning from Shoalhaven Heads on the NSW south coast. The label has been kicking around since mid 2016 and was founded by Tom Page.
For the last three years I started my days with thoughts like "Why am I here and not there?" or "Why do I work in a job I am not satisfied in?" These types of questions followed me all day long, sometimes also all night.
I got my first film camera when I was 17, I was working at a little vintage shop in Fremantle, Australia. My boss told me I could pick just one thing from the shop as my Christmas present and I knew straight away my best friend for the summer was going to be the little red and black Canon AF-50 in the window.
I don't know where I start tying to describe my work. Art is such a subjective thing….I shoot and I leave the rest to whom ever wants to look, hopefully it moves someone.
I am Marcel Boer, Film photographer from Cologne, Germany. I might be addicted to this surf culture in case of the fact that I love skateboarding and we are just surfers as will right, but with 4 wheels on the street.
I was born and raised in Quebec City, Canada. I've been shooting surf photography for about a year now. Because there is no surf in Quebec City, I don't often have the opportunity to shoot in the water; the closest break is in Maine.
