In Focus Gallery: Lance Smith

Lance has been taking pictures his whole life but got serious in 1972 when he declared photography as his college major. Yes, he was in college and shooting action sports in 1972. Pretty awesome considering the camera was invented in like 1960-something and there was no such thing as the action sports industry. There was surf and there was skate.

In Focus Photo Gallery: Benjamin Ginsberg

In Focus Photo Gallery: Benjamin Ginsberg

We met up with Ben last week in between South swells. He was processing images from the first swell and prepping gear for the next swell. Ben is an opportunistic hunter and shoots from both the beach and in water. He likes both but has a deeper passion for getting in the water and shooting right in the action. “Shooting inches away from the action allows you to get these extreme angles that are just so fascinating.”

Ben’s style is a classic one. In our world of Photoshopped photos he prefers to keep it real. He explained he wants to bring you an image of what it was really like in real life – as close to the human eye as possible. So when you see his photos from the Wedge when those 25’ bombs were coming in just know they haven’t been given a face-lift.

Naturally we timed our “supposedly semi-mellow” photo session during one of the biggest S-swells we have had this year. Fortunately our winner Andrew and his brother Alex charged the 10ft bombs in Newport Saturday morning with Oz Wroe Diane Edmonds strategically placed on the beach. What a great session.

Surf Labor Photo Gallery: Tk’s Froghouse

If you surf you know The Froghouse. The place is an institution, the employees legendary, the photos on the walls…let’s just say eclectic. We sat down with TK, owner and operator of The Froghouse for what we thought would be a fun and irreverent interview. We were pleasantly surprised when the conversation turned in to an esoteric discussion about the sport, the emergence of an industry and where we’re headed. It was great.
