terry senate, take two

March 14, 2011

I was at Terry’s surf shop again yesterday. Apart from Vic, an acquaintance of Terry’s, glassing two boards, there was not much going on. However, Terry and I got a chance to sit and chat for a while and get to know each other a little more. I did shoot a little, though – here are a few of the frames I came back with. Let me know what you think about them!

Vic takes a break from working on one of the boards to talk to Terry.


Terry pulls masking tape off a freshly glassed board. I hope I’ll get a chance to work this shot again, because I like what is going on with the background and the colors. This one doesn’t really work as you can hardly see the tape and what’s happening with it.

Here’s another idea that I’ll need to follow-up on with a wider angle. Terry has four workshops, with two being each door-to-door. With the right boards, light, colors and focal length, I think it could be an interesting shot.

This is where you really get to feel the downsides of a rangefinder. I had to reframe that shot at least three, four times, until I finally had Terry’s head in the frame.

Terry hand-signs and numbers each board that he shapes. This one is number 35,152.

This guy saw Terry in his truck and ran to get his board from his house. He wants Terry to shape him a new board, and needed to show him something on his old one.
