Wanna Win A Trip To The North Shore? Follow These Tips And Submit Your Photos

Only a fool turns down a trip to paradise and lodging courtesy of Turtle Bay Resort.

And this particular trip involves a course in surf photography by one of the greatest to ever do it, Sir Brian Bielmann. Brian’s been around for quite some time; the man’s work has been occupying double page spreads in surf magazines far before this silly thing called the internet. He’s shot everyone from Gerry Lopez to John Florence, Larry Bertleman to Tom Carroll, Occy to Kelly Slater…anyone relevant from 1970 to now has been frozen in time between his lens. He’s the man who shot our concept with Bruce Irons illuminating a pitch black tube by flair and has more iconic shots of Andy than he can count (you can view some here).

Currently we’ve got a #StabFullFrame x O’Neill competition in the works, where we’ll be paying your airfare to Hawaii to join Brian’s Developing Legends photography course; the submissions are pouring in so it’s in your best interest to get amongst it. And, you can submit as many time as you please – it’s like the lotto or a raffle, the more you submit the better your chances.

So, we asked Brian to lend us a few of his favourite shots and break down what surf photography’s made of. If you’re going to submit, we recommend taking his advice, as he’ll be hand picking the winner at the end of the contest. And, in the meantime, each week we’ll be dropping our favourite Full Frame across all our platforms, and O’Neill will be sending you off a prize pack if you’re the owner the shot that ticks our boxes.

Shot number one (featured above): Sion Milosky, Pipeline
Brian: In recent times, the pulled back shot has popularised. Years ago everyone seemed to shoot tight on the surfer. Then slowly it became all about pulling back and creating a sense of place. This shot is of the late great Sion at Pipeline. Tip: Look for some foreground and pull back on the wave. Just be sure enough of the surfer and the wave are in frame and you can portray how deep in the tube your subject is. This is the same for any manoeuvre, whether it be aerial, carving and simply a stylish high line trim.
