Follow the Light

As the lensman for Driftwood Photography Studios, I’ve been working really hard lately on an entry submission for an upcoming grant aimed at surf photography/surf photographers.

It’s through the Follow the Light Foundation, which was started in memory of renowned/pioneering surf photographer Larry “Flame” Moore.  Winner gets a nice chunk of cash to be put towards furthering your photography career, in whatever way the winner thinks will best benefit them.  Pretty great!

This year’s entry took a variation from previous years…instead of a straight image and essay entry, entrants had to create a slideshow to music.  Here is a slightly tweaked version of the slideshow/images I used in my entry, which I sent out this past Monday (5/17/2010).  Finalists are announced towards the end of June, and the winner is announced at the 2010 US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach this August.

Hope you enjoy, and wish me luck!
