Punker Pat Goes Pro!!

Seems everyone's a photographer these days. And it's not a bad thing. Take surfers with cameras for example. What was once considered a private club is now open to the public… any kid at any beach at anytime can now snap a photo that would've been considered "epic" years ago… well they're epic now. And here to talk about it is one of our favorite Go Pro'ers….

I’ve been taking pictures for a long time, since I started traveling for surfing back in 1992, just on my travels etc. I guess that’s how I got into photography, I was just documenting all these crazy trips I was going on around the world and trying to remember all the fun times / I don’t consider myself a photographer or an “artist”, I’m just trying to document the fun times, so I can sit in a rocking chair when I’m old and say, look at that, we used to charge it. I got into all the water stuff when the Olympus water camera came out about 5 years ago. It was really affordable and easy to use, the only problem was that it would break all the time. At that same time, the GoPro Hero came out, which was far superior, so I started using that. I would mostly film longboarding with Tanner Praire, Alex Knost and Nolan Hall, make little youtube & vimeo videos. Also, I got a dive housing for a Cannon G9, which takes beautiful pictures and video, but nothing really compares to the durability, price and quality of the new GoPro’s. So, GoPro is a tool, which makes it really easy for people like me to document our experience and Social Media allows us to share it with our friends, it’s amazing!! I get a ton of stoke when I see all the pictures people put up of tubes or other crazy Oceanic experiences : Robbie Crawford, Mark Healey, Zak Noyle, Clark Little –I follow these people on Instagram for inspiration.

Photo: Shooting or swimming? For Punker it's both!
