What I tell them is the same thing I say to everyone — pick up any camera you can and just shoot. But if you keep using the same lenses, you're going to end up shooting the same thing. A different lens each time will help you to start thinking outside the box. A few years ago I was out in Australia and went to a surf break with one lens. I knew if I'd brought my 600mm lens I probably would have gone for a tight shot like what everybody else was doing, but I didn't have that with me. So I took the one lens that I had and shot the scene from further away. That photo turned into a two-page spread in Surfer Magazine (below), and it all came from not having the tools I was most comfortable with. With a lot of surf stuff I've shot in Canada, the editors love it because they're seeing pine trees, or a beach with no houses around; these wide open vistas with a black rubber suit, or cloudy, low light rainy days that makes the shot grainy — it’s just different to how they've seen surfing for years. New is cool.
