Sometimes you just have to take a long drive nowhere in particular. Where no one talks but everyone understands each other.

Dear Photographers Directory,
Hi, my name is Paul McLaren and I am 14 years old living in Brooklyn New York. Honestly, photography is still something that I am exploring and learning about. I don’t know much about it but I feel as though I am able to truly express my feelings and the beautiful elements of life through this artistic medium. When I was 12, my parents bought me my first camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T3 with an 18-55m kit lens, and I still use it today. I know this is nothing compared to a 7D or 6D, but I honestly don’t think that the quality of the camera matters in photography, its about what you see and decide to capture. Part of my mission as photographer is… well I don’t really now yet, I’m still exploring with different techniques and subject matter. Growing up in NYC is such an advantage for me as street photography is a breeze. I love taking photographs of people but I’m not a huge fan of posed pictures. I prefer to take them in the moment and capturing life as it is. Currently, I’m enrolled in a photography course at Parsons Academy of Design and I am really benefiting from it and learning about how to improve my photographs. Choosing a photo to submit was difficult because I wanted to display something that was both a good photograph and that showed something about myself. I think this photograph does more of the latter because, I am a musician (cellist) and this photo really exemplifies the power of music and how it brings busy every day New Yorkers together. The amount of times that I have seen business men in suits rushing through Washington Square Park, stop for a street musician is incredible and exemplifies what music does for people. But anyway, I think this photo also shows the energy and spirit of New York City. Before taking this photograph, I was looking through a photography book and saw a photo of the famous cellist, Pablo Casals by Yousuf Karsh. I was so intrigued by the photograph that I could almost listen to it. I was inspired by that and tried to recreate it in this photograph of some street musicians I saw in SoHo, perhaps in a much more modern sense. However, I would encourage whoever is looking at this to view some of the other photos on blog because I feel that doing so would give you more of a perspective of my style. It would mean the world to me (sorry for the cliché) if I could join this group. I don’t really want to do this to get out there more, but more to learn from other photographers so I can develop my own style.

Tips from the ASP: Taking the Perfect Surf Action Shot
For more photos and videos from the Samsung Galaxy 2014 ASP World Championship Tour, explore the Snapper Rocks Beach location page and follow surfers Kelly Slater (@kellyslater), Carissa Moore (@rissmoore10), Mick Fanning (@mfanno), Stephanie Gilmore (@stephaniegilmore), Gabriel Medina (@gabrielmedinaaa) and Courtney Conlogue (@courtneyconlogue).
The Association of Surfing Professionals (@asp) kicks off its 2014 World Championship Tour today in Australia’s Gold Coast. The world’s best male and female surfers will take to the water to compete for the highest scores from judges considering level of difficulty, innovation, variety, speed, power and flow.
Whether you’re attending the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros or simply getting a surf session in with friends, keep these tips from ASP photographers Kirstin Scholtz (@kirstinscholtz) and Kelly Cestari (@kc80) in mind:
- Nothing will end a water session quicker than a leak. Protect your water housing from any possible damage.
- You will never win a fight against the ocean, but the more time you spend shooting in the water the higher your success rate will be and your confidence will grow with each session.
- Communicate with the surfer about the type of image you have in mind and it will come a lot easier. Build a good working relationship with them, so they trust you not to ruin their wave and you trust them not to injure you.
- Early morning and late afternoon are often the most magical times to shoot surfing. There is nothing more beautiful than a surfer silhouetted against a glowing backlit wave or wave painted with purples and pinks reflecting the colors of sunset.
- Keep looking for new angles. Shooting from behind the wave can make the face look steeper and the wave bigger. Shooting from above makes it look smaller and flatter.
