Mattias Hammar…remember the name…probably one of the best art photographers of surfing I’ve seen to date. I’m good, but he’s great. I really love his work. His dive into the IR field has me rethinking about converting my 5DM2 to IR or getting something a bit faster and converting it. It’s a big expenditure for a hobby but damn, these are absolutely beautiful! The dynamics, the chiaroscuro…everything fantastically composed to create an ethereal feel, making his work strong and bold while maintaining the graceful movement of every surfer. Kudos McSnowHammer!
