Video: The Life and Inspiration of Surf Photographer Chris Burkard

His passion is contagious—and might leave you aching for open waters
Staff Writer

Like anybody else, I’ve always aimed to be inspired in what I do. I’ve always aimed to do something that would keep me passionate and…smiling. Enjoying every challenge. If you put yourself in the right situation, your work can really make you grow—it can make you a better person. 

Surf photographer Chris Burkard has produced some of the most beautiful and iconic surf images of today—and he's only 26. In this video, spend six minutes with a man whose job you'd be crazy not to be envious of, drink in the incredible shots and see if you can siphon off some of the obvious passion that Burkard shows for his work.

Oh, and then check out some of his photos on our site: Surfing the World's Freezing Waters, Surfers Out of Water, Slumdog Surfers: Catching India's Waves
