Interview with Surf-Photographer Chris Burkard @ WHUDAT

chris burkard surf 01 Interview with Surf Photographer Chris Burkard @ WHUDAT

WHUDAT: When and why did you start surf photography?

Chris Burkard: When I found that the camera was a creative outlet for me I got hooked trying to learn as much as I could. I combined this with my passion for being in the water and started shooting surf images of my friends. This helped me land an internship at TransWorld Surf and I kept growing from there.

chris burkard surf 02 Interview with Surf Photographer Chris Burkard @ WHUDAT

WHUDAT: You are pretty active in social media. Your own accounts on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter have a strong reach. How much time do you spend on self-promoting yourself each week through your own channels and what is the most important channel for you?

Chris Burkard: I’m on my social media outlets daily. I am busy responding to questions or business inquiries through Facebook. It’s almost like a secondary e-mail. I post twice or three times daily on Facebook. I invest a lot of time into that. I think Instagram is the most personal of my accounts because it allows viewers to see real time pics of my travels and following along in the journey. All of the social media channels have their place though and are great resources.
