Welcome to Fakefish Photography. My name is Craig Fascione and I have been in and around the water since I was 14 when I was racing Dinghies with friends. I then started windsurfing at about the age of 15, teaching both sports for many years. I have surfed badly for most of that time so really appreciate the skill involved in this sport and the hours of frustration waiting for waves. Photography is like all the sports I shoot, you are always learning, striving for the next shot, new trick, a bigger wave, or the latest Kit, there is always someone better than you, and you will never ever master it, so just enjoy.
Have your say
