Five Photos by Peter Taras

SURFING’s photo team is ichiban number one on planet earth, but thousands of their images go unseen. This travesty shall not stand. We give you SURFING’s Five Photos series.

 

“All these images are shot with a Mark III and a Canon 70-200 2.8L lens. All in California. It’s what I do. I’m a Photo Editor first and a photographer second. I fill the photo gaps. I do the things that I don’t think my senior photographers will do (which isn’t much) or I cover areas where we don’t have senior photographers. Here’s some outtakes from this winter and summer. Nothing amazing. Just 5 photos. So take it as it.”
