Tripple motion speed blur shot on slide film of @kellyslater. I found this photo during a clean out a while back, after placing it on my light box I thought I’d hang onto it, there was something about it I really liked. There was no checking the digital screen back then, it was using all your experience and learning from your mistakes to get things right. There is some kind of beauty in shooting and not knowing the total outcome for weeks later, some weird anxious feeling that all photographers who shot this way loved. Kelly in his white wetsuit phase, year unknown until I investigate some more. #natesmithphoto #surfstories #kellyslater #slidefilm #peronalwork #cool

In 2001 i went to Hawaii for my first time. This photo of @tajamos is from my first ever swim, my first ever roll shot there. At the time I wondered why there were only 3 of us swimming as it was only 6 foot. What I didn’t know was that the swell was about to jump and jump it did. There is a reef way way out the back and when waves hit that you know that minutes later something solid is coming. Minutes later I found out why the lineup was fairly empty of photographers, it’s not fun getting flogged, flipped and dragged across the razor sharpe reef of Rocky Point by a 10 foot set. I still have the scars in my back, although they’ve fainted over time it’ll always be my first reminder of Hawaii. I’ll always have this shot too. This is how one rookie learnt about the buoys and swell that day. #natesmithphoto #hawaii #tajburrow #surf #surfstories #slidefilm

This was the very first big portrait shoot I’d ever done. @seano888 and myself flew to Qld to meet @markocchilupo for the shoot, as prepared as I was I was still nervous, it was Occy after all. The say as a photographer you know when you got the shot, well luckily I thought that this shot right here, the very first frame I took was it because my studio light decided to pack it in only minutes later. It ended up being the cover of the mag I worked for at the time. I now know Occy is the funniest and easiest guy ever to shoot. No need to be nervous, just do your thing. #natesmithphoto #occy #portrait #onelight #legend #cover

This is why I never ever leave home without a camera. The #fujiX100s did me well yesterday. Angriest storm yet. #natesmithphoto #sydney #storm #crazy #wild

I shouldn’t be surprised by someone’s random act of kindness but I am. This photo is a result of an old guy and his wife being totally cool to a stranger, me ! I was looking for a parking space in the City ( Sydney) I pulled over to think about where to park and this old polish guy came out of a building and said watch out for the vultures meaning parking cops, yes they’re everywhere in the city. He offered me a space in his spot if I was quick. I asked what the view was like from were he lived, he said I’ll show you, he and his wife how me the roof top. I mentioned to him I love taking city photos and as it turns out they own the whole building and I now I’ve a spot to shoot this anytime I like. Next shot will be in dark / early evening which I think will look killer. Hats off the kind folk, made my day. #natesmithphoto #sydrooftops #sydney #cityscape #cool
