Surf photography is a difficult thing, even with a digital camera. But, Scott Aichner spent a large hunk of his career doing it on film. Now, in order to fund the purchase of some pricy new slow-motion video gear, he’s selling off some prints of his most iconic images and he’s including the original slides with them.
Aichner was a prolific surf photographer, spending a decade covering the sport for Surfer magazine, where he had several covers. He has also worked with a number of big-name companies in the surfing and action sports space. He’s the real deal.
Lots of photographers sell prints of their old work in order to fund their upcoming ventures, but it’s very rare to see a photographer selling their original slides. The presentation looks rather awesome with a print and the slide mounted into a box frame that’s backlit using an LED.
The photos that ran in the magazines start around $1,300, but if you don’t mind an unpublished frame from the same series, the price can go down around $800 or $900.
I’m sure it hurts to have to give up original negatives, but Aichner is extremely talented, so I hope he reaches his goal and gets to move on to his next project.
