Experienced photographer with over 15 years of shootings.
Water sports make for great photographic subjects, although getting right into the heart of the action isn't always easy. Whether you're in a boat, in the water or perched on the banks; preparation is key. Beyond favourable weather conditions and sheer good luck, the next most important thing is some sporting knowledge so you can know the moves and plan your angles for the shots. Push the limits and don't be afraid to try new equipment, ideas and perspectives.
The winners of the expert-judged category and the crowd-vote will be offered a plug-in of their choice from the amazing Topaz Labs collection.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
