Surf photography in Ericeira: Tó Mané

We’ve posted before about surf photography in Bali — now let’s learn a bit about the scene in Portugal. Surf photography ace Tó Mané saw international exposure after he captured big wave surfing star Garrett McNamara catching what just may be the biggest wave ever surfed — a 100-ft (30-meter) monster off the coast of Nazaré. Mané’s shot even made the front page of the London Times. He later shot MacNamara’s fellow daredevil surfer Carlos Burle of Brazil when he caught what may also be the largest wave ever surfed. The jury is apparently still out.

From September 1-7 in Ericeira, Tó Mané will be sharing his photographic experience, knowledge and skills with other professional and amateur photographers in an intimate series of workshops called the Ericeira Photo Camp.

From Surfer Today:

This will be an opportunity to make a portfolio of photographs of this surf culture and amazingly human, vibrant, and passionate people.

This educational exchange offers participants the chance to be a part of the amazing surf spirit and passion for living the Ericeira locals have to offer.

—Surf photographer extraordinaire Tó Mané
