Walk then Run

Tracks - - Fiji -

Many of the best surf pho­togs have a spe­cial­ity, which they do bet­ter than any­one. It gets them no­ticed and it gets them jobs. For Ordy it was his courage and abil­ity in waves of con­se­quence. But it’s not an easy path to fol­low. “I get emails all the time. Guys say­ing, I want to shoot the Right from the wa­ter or this and that. They’re jump­ing too high too soon. It’s like surf­ing. You don’t surf 10-foot waves when you’re start­ing out. I’ve had crew who say they want to shoot fish eye at The Right and I’m like you’re kid­ding. Go shoot fish eye at North Point when it’s big and clos­ing out the bay. When that feels like a kid­die’s play­ground, then sure step it up.” On this trip the stu­dents scored a few solid days to test their abil­i­ties. Ord was let­ting them shoot over his shoul­der and en­cour­aged them to sit wider and shoot with a 50mm lens if it got too much for them.
