Instagram Surf Photography and Watershot Housings

With the advent of mobile technology and the explosion of surfing in the Northeast it was only a matter of time before the two converged. During a day of good waves, a quick scroll through my Instagram feed reveals a myriad of geotagged photos.

Recently, Watershot has brought me aboard as an ambassador. Wielding a decent social media following and instant upload capability irresponsibility, is a quick way to earn cold stares when rolling up to any wave. I’m psyched to have a new way to bring images to the world of surfing via iPhone.  In fact, this little housing and fisheye combo is providing some much needed inspiration to my work. I’ve found myself swimming out with the Watershot Pro + iPhone5 combo on days when I would pass on shooting all together. It has brought more joy and reminded me that surf photography is so much fun, even on the not so epic days. I just caution you to use your housing wisely, no need for specific street names, geotags or landmarking in your photos.

As part of my ambassadorship, Watershot has offered a discount to my friends, of which I’m so very happy to share.  When purchasing online type in the code “@RyanStruck” and receive 10% off your order. Feel free to Tweet me or give me a shout on Instagram, I’d love to see what you all are shooting 🙂

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    Very cool. Congrats. Now…if I only had an iPhone….

  2. Fantastic concept and cutting edge technology. Up here in the Mid-Atlantic waters off New Jersey equipment management can present its own set of issues. I’m excited to hear about this as its the first time I’m seeing it. Your shots are showing a new development and direction as exemplified in these photos. I’m itching to see more! And I’m definitely using the free code you offered up! Thanks Strook!
