What better way to test out my new long lens port for my water housing than on my super eager, will do anything to please sidekick, Bella haha. The weather has been extremely hot and humid lately, surf is flat and not that I needed an excuse to swim but more a good opportunity to be productive and test gear between trips and shoots. Once you figure out the whole dry port system which can be a headache it’s just a matter of getting your focus spot on and you can get some great results. Looking forward to taking it out for a proper run.
One of the things I really enjoy about my job is getting to shoot different sports. We all easily fall into our comfort zones of regularity so when asked to shoot the Hansgrohe Masters of Water Lifesaving Series last weekend at North Beach, Durban I was amped for the challenge. Maybe not blessed with great light but there was plenty of action and new angles to capture. Below Mandi Maritz just edges out a full stretching Aimee Faulmann to take the womans flags title.
