TAKING GNAR SURFER PICS!!
DMAG: How did you know you wanted to be a surf photographer? AG: “I just really enjoy doing it! I also enjoy seeing how stoked people get when I show them a cool photo I took of them.” DMAG: Shooting from land or water? AG: “Water! You get a different perspective that most non-surfers don’t see very often, plus there are a lot more angles to snap!” DMAG: What’s your favorite subject to shoot? AG: “Big hollow empty barrels – waves, not wooden barrels!” DMAG: Trickiest part of taking photos in the surf? AG: “Positioning and timing! I’ve missed so many great shots just because I wasn’t in the right spot at the right time. You also have to be a confident swimmer!” DMAG: Memorable moments? AG: “I’ve had dolphins swim under me before, but still have never managed to capture a photo of one! I’ve also been dragged across the reef at some of my local breaks.” DMAG: Photography idol? AG: “I take my inspiration from many different photographers,

AG: “Putting stickers on your lenses or your camera body can look pretty cool!” DMAG: Weirdest animal you’d like to photograph? AG: “Turtles!”
