With the advent of mobile technology and the explosion of surfing in the Northeast it was only a matter of time before the two converged. During a day of good waves, a quick scroll through myÂ InstagramÂ feed reveals a myriad of geotagged photos.
Recently,Â WatershotÂ has brought me aboard as an ambassador. Wielding a decent social media following and instant upload capability irresponsibility, is a quick way to earn cold stares when rolling up to any wave. Iâ€™m psyched to have a new way to bring images to the world of surfing via iPhone.Â In fact, this little housing and fisheye combo is providing some much needed inspiration to my work. Iâ€™ve found myself swimming out with theÂ Watershot ProÂ + iPhone5 combo on days when I would pass on shooting all together. It has brought more joy and reminded me that surf photography is so much fun, even on the not so epic days. I just caution you to use your housing wisely, no need for specific street names, geotags or landmarking in your photos.
