Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 December, 2013 - Beautiful, unique, kaleidoscopic, geometrically exquisite...perfect waves are some of Mother Nature’s most alluring and mesmerising creations.
Incredible Waves is a coffee-table book of photographs that capture the beauty and majesty of the world’s most awesome waves. This volume is a collection of the best recent work by 28 top surf photographers including Clark Little, Brian Bielmann, Chris Burkard, Russell Ord, Mickey Smith, Alan van Gysen, Brad Masters, Alex Marks, Jeff Flindt, Ray Collins, Laurent Pujol, Tim McKenna and Andrew Shield.
Among the most spectacular shots are images of big-wave breaks such as Pipeline, Cloudbreak, The Right, Shipstern’s Bluff and Teahupoo – waves which are as dangerous as they are enticing, for photographers as well as surfers.
The photos are accompanied by essays, insights from pro surfers, plus a discussion about current trends in surf photography.
Readers interested in improving their own photographic skills will benefit from the technique sections at the back of the book which offer tips and advice for getting better shots. Lineup shots, telephoto shots and water shots are all covered, along with tips for getting the best from POV cameras such as the ubiquitous GoPro.
Incredible Waves is a tribute to the beauty and power of the ocean at its most spectacular.
