Together, they have created Full Frame, a school of photography that kicks off with a series of surf photography workshops. The initiative is supported by Shot Bru, Zigzag’s showcase of South African surf photography and Shot Bru’s sponsor Hurley. Also Brother Housings have backed this venture and besides presenting their fine water housings, purposely made for shooting surf photography at the workshops, have also made a housing available for the use of participants of the workshops.

The program consists of four, two and a half hour presentations that will cover the following areas:
High action capture
Shooting line -ups
Reading water and wave conditions
Current trends (what photo editors look for)
Marketing you photos
Photo tasks and crits
The program also allows participants direct access to Chris and Pat for the following twelve months for questions and tips.
Pat says of the ambitions of the initiative, “Our aim is to create a highly ‘focused’ group of surf shooters passionately dedicated to photographic excellence.”
