Why do you want to join the Venice Surf Photography Meetup Group?

Fellow member, Omari, suggested that I join this group from the images I captured during the first big swells of 2012... So I humbly obliged to his request... I'm always intrigued with all facets of sports photography, so why not start with surfing!!!

What sorts of activities are you looking for in a Meetup group?

All sorts, really... Meeting up to shoot, checking out the latest surfing event(s), and/or talking shop...

How would you describe your skill as a photographer? Beginner? Intermediate? Advanced?

I'd say intermediate-to-advance... I shot film SLR's in the 80's and grasped a good foundation of camera settings and such... Transitioned to dSLR's in 2000 (Canon 20D) and never looked back... I do have pro-level tools, but I think it's the photographer that creates the vision and captures it...

Have you surfed or photographed surfing before?

I've only shot a couple of times, so I would categorize myself as a "rookie" in the surf photography realm...

Introduction

Hello... My name is Butch... I'm an environmentalist by trade, but my passion falls under photography!!! I'm a rookie regarding surfing photography, but I'm always eager to learn the finer details of what this sport entails...
