Surf Photo Session

Have you ever dreamed of being a PROFESSIONAL SURFER? 


Would you like to experience it for a day...even if it’s to at least LOOK like one? Here at Heatwaves we cannot improve your surfing skills but we sure can nail a few wicked shots of you and your mates tearing up the incoming waves.

Whether it’s a solo or group session there’s a package just for you! 

Surf Photo Session Packages:

All packages include a pre-shoot briefing with Adam, your photographer, to build a game plan for the ultimate photography session.

YOU choose the beach, the time (morning or arvo sesh), where Adam shoots from (land or sea) and most importantly, what outfit to wear and we’ll go out together and create some magic.

"Adam is incredibly friendly and talented. We had a great time in the water, and he captured astonishing shots. He will definitely make you look like a pro surfer, even if you're not one yet! I bought a session for my partner's birthday, she couldn't be happier. Highly recommend everyone to give it a go if you want to get some long-lasting, glorious memory of your surfing."


Where do you shoot?

Heatwaves is a local expert in the Eastern Suburb Beaches (Bondi to Maroubra). If you prefer a different beach, we can also make that happen, additional costs may apply but just let me know.


What’s the best time of day to get my session?

When the sun rises and falls an incredible palette of colours is created that makes the perfect backdrop for these sorts of shots. Having said that, it’s up to you! All we need is good light, good conditions and a good attitude.


My mates and I make up a group of more than 4, what are our options?

Call or email me and let's discuss!


What if I need to cancel my session?

Mother nature happens. Life happens. I get it! I am committed to creating an incredible experience, not just pictures! If you give me more than 12 hours in advance of shoot time to call off/change your session; we can reschedule at no cost.

If we make it to the beach and realise conditions are not ideal or you cut it within/under 12 hours notice; I will reschedule within this time period at no cost onceIf within 4 weeks of the postponed session we are not able to schedule a booking time, you will be refunded your payment minus a booking fee of $65AUD.

Please note that once we agree to start the session full price will be charged for services rendered.



How many images will I get?

In the 1-2 hour sessions I may shoot hundreds of digital images which will be available for download within 24 hours. From these, you will have the opportunity to get at least 10 pictures edited and 3 printed (depending on your chosen package) within 5 business days of order placement.

Please note, if you need an order rushed, additional costs may apply.


What size of photos will I receive?

Through a shared dropbox you’ll find all of your images. For a quick upload these images will be 800 x 553 px. Then it’s your job to select your favourites for me to edit. Once you’ve sent through a list I’ll edit them up to make them POP! Edited photos will be sent through at 1800 x 1200 px. Perfect for desktop wallpapers, 5 x 7” prints etc.

Want one of your shots printed larger? Heatwaves can definitely organise this for you. Get in touch with Adam to discuss print sizes, framing options and pricing.


Do I need to be a professional surfer?

Definitely not!

Adam will photograph you whatever your ability as long as it is safe to do so. Adam has shot the same beginner, (now intermediate) surfers on multiple occasions and through multiple photo sessions, they have been able to see their progression and see what they can do to improve.


Can I organise this as a gift?


A surf photo session is a fantastic present. Just let me know how you want to set it up...especially if it’s a surprise etc. I would hate to be the one to spoil it!
