Wavelength Seeks Crowd Funding – Possible Surf Photography Workshop

I’m about to put up a review of Blurb’s magazine printing service (might take a while as there’s surf this week) which goes into detail about how I enjoy printed magazines, obviously touching on how many seem to be disappearing at the moment, well UK magazine Wavelength have just launched a campaign on crowdfunder.co.uk to gather some funding from readers, you can read all about it here:

There are various levels of pledges with associated rewards, from £7 to £7000, the most interesting one for surf photographers is:

PLEDGE £350.00 OR MORE
0 backers so far, 5 more available
Wavelength Photo Workshop – attend a 2 day surf photography workshop hosted by Wavelength Editor and Pro Surf Photographer Tim Nunn (in Cornwall)

That seems like a reasonable price for a two day workshop from an expert in a niche genre of photography for a maximum of 5 people, I don’t think my budget can stretch to it unfortunately, two days ago I finally convinced myself I could afford to order a new Aquatech LP-TZ 4 port for my housing (I’ll be doing part two of my review of the 70-200mm F4 L lens once I get the port and have had a chance to use it) so my surf photography hobby fund is currently in the red.

The last (well, only) workshop I attended was with Mike Searle, it was a great morning and I got to try out some kit that I would not have had another chance to use, so I’m sure a two day event would be very rewarding for your photography.

As you know if you read this website I like to pick out one of my own photo’s that’s relevant to illustrate a post, I’ve had a photo printed in Wavelength before, and it was a looking out of the tube shot at Spot M, so in honour of that shot here’s another one from a different day.
