The journey towards excellence

By different techniques, he has filmed many professional and renowned surfers. Moreover, he loves to make professional video edits of the surf photographers.

Challenges of being a surf photographer

While many people have a notion that surf photography is easy, Garcia says it is extremely difficult. He revealed, “Surf photography has been my passion and I love to show some extraordinary clicks to the world through my lens. For any photographer, patience is the key. You may have an image in your mind but to get the perfect click, you might have to wait for several years depending upon the external conditions like climate and constant mobility of the water bodies.”  The photographer even stated that facing huge waves have now become a part of his life and it doesn’t scare him anymore.

However, surf photography was unique which saw his interest in it. The photographer further added, “I have been familiar with big waves and I am a good swimmer. I believe I was destined to make a revolution in the field of surf photography.”
