Great photography starts with a passion for the sport they are documenting. “I love photography,” says famed surf photographer Ted Grambeau, “but I love surfing more.” This combination is key.

By understanding and being passionate about your sport, you will better capture the adrenalin, pain and emotion that it provides. Be aware though, that being good at sports photography means often doing less of the sport you love. You have to be prepared to watch perfect waves, and not ride them. Or photograph pow days and not shred them.
