The Box is one of Corey Wilson’s favorite places to shoot. By the looks of this photo, we’d guess that it’s one of Cory Lopez’s favorite places to surf too.

All Photos: Corey Wilson

“It’s one of the most-used lenses,” says SURFING Photo Editor and general wizard Peter Taras. “And he’s one of the best guys to shoot with it.” Peter’s talking about the 70-200mm camera lens and Senior Photographer Corey Wilson. All the photos you see above are products of the aforementioned combination. Here’s what Corey decided to showcase from his finest years of shooting with that lens.

    Fine.

    Great job! Beautiful pics! it’s rare to find someone who doesn’t try to repeat the same old angles. I personally like seeing all different angles from a photo, especially the unusual ones. Congrats for the great work!

  • Mik

    wow. (Canon or Nikon? what speed @ 70mm?)

  • Felipe

    Maybe a dumb question, but can you change focal lenght while shooting underwater? Or you chose before going out?

  • MV

    Surfing Mag would be foolish not to consider Alexandru Amoq for a guest editorial..

    just fine!

  • Jimmicane

    Yep. You can zoom out there.

  • Jimmicane

    Corey uses Nikon and it would be their f/2.8 version.
