Fish Bird Surf Photo Shoot

Recently, I had the unique opportunity to shoot Tal Hazelhurst, one of North Florida’s best surfboard shapers and the owner of Fish Bird Surf Surfboards.   During the planning stages, I had one main goal in mind, creating images that convey the pure craft of shaping a surfboard by hand.  Before any shoot, I always begin with sketches which help guide me through the assignment and often lead to other ideas as the shoot progresses. Next, Tal and I met at his shaping room and figured out the best angles for each photograph. Tal was very patient throughout the entire shoot and we ended up with some great images. Enjoy!
