Emerald Isle Beach Portratis

Emerald Isle Beach Portratis

I had the opportunity to work with this awesome family last week. They were from Boston! We ended the session with cupcakes and sand. It turned out pretty interesting the little guy was eating his cupcake with sand mixed in. It reminded me how awesome it would to be a kid again.

Here is an image I took at sunrise about 4 days ago. You can see the morning glow in the background from the sunrise. The foreground is illuminated by a flash attached to my camera in my water housing. I love waking up early and taking photos like this!

Emerald Isle Beach Portraits

Emerald Isle Beach Portraits

Beach portraits are in full swing now. Here is a photo from one of my sessions last week with Brandon, Renee & Chase. They were an awesome family to work with! We had so much fun during our shoot it didn’t even feel like we were taking photos. I have 2 sessions booked this week and a few more throughout the month. If you would like to schedule a portrait session e-mail me graham@surferphotos.com

Bogue Inlet Pier

Here is photo I took the other night with my Canon 5D mark III. It was my first time using it & I really like the results so far. This long exposure was taking at night time. I love all the different colors you get from the lights on the water from the pier. Be sure to visit my website to browse more photos like this.

Waves, Waves & Waves

Waves, Waves & Waves

I love all aspects of photography honestly. I love doing portraits, weddings, surfing, landscapes & empty wave photos. I feel like doing all of these helps me in each category. My passion though is shooting waves. It’s crazy how each wave is different. For example, this wave photographed here on this particular morning looks nothing like all the others I took the same morning. From the colors to the shape they’re all different. That’s why I love them so much. It never gets boring no matter how many waves you shoot. One thing people don’t realize is I’m taking these photos early morning before the sun comes up and at later in the evening when it goes down. There’s always the potential of running into a shark. It’s just part of the territory. Some mornings when I’m super sketched out I have to talk myself through it. You woke up to get the shot now go get it! That’s what I have to remind myself. But I wouldn’t change it for the world because passion overcomes fear any day.
