Surf Photography

I've just spent my evening browsing various images of professional surf photographers work. From the iconic images by Clark Little that even those who aren't into surfing would recognize to Chris Burkard who also shoots in a similar style but perhaps involves slightly more of the scene surrounding the waves that Clark Little is so closely involved in.

Either way i am inspired more and more to try this style of photography and actually get in the water and get involved with the surfer and the wave to create an image rather than photographing surfers from the shoreline.

However i feel it will be a long way off before i can afford suitable casings for my camera's that i would trust taking out in the sea and perhaps will start off with a less expensive waterproof point and shoot's and just start getting out there.

Either way the beach and the sea are both calling me and my camera to them.
