"If I only scrape a living, at least it's a living worth scraping. I feel genuinely lucky to - hand on heart - say I love doing what I do and I may never be a rich man. If I live long enough, I'll certainly have a tale or two for the nephews, and I dig the thought of that."
These words close out an arresting, personal mini-documentary by/about surf photographer Mickey Smith. His poetic narration and the harshness of his accent perfectly complement the beautifully desolate images of surfing on the west coast of Ireland. He impresses upon the viewer that the life of a surf photographer is not always the glamor of shooting in Tahiti, but is instead a painful and often dangerous life of sacrifice.
Enjoy. It's pretty stunning.
