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.
This year I decided to create a calendar with some of my favorite photographs. It includes the Shackleford Ponies, Bogue Inlet Pier, baby seat turtles & wave art. It really is one of my favorite projects so far. It also includes photos that I haven’t printed yet. The calendars are only $20 and for each calendar I sell, I’m going to donate $1 to The American Cancer society in honor of my Aunt Susan Hunt Bailey. You can purchase the calendars by clicking on the link below. Thanks for your support!
Taylor, my neighbor gets to see me walking up & down the road with my big water housing very early in the morning & late in the evenings. He gets to witness all the hard work that goes into getting shots like this. Everyone thinks you just put the camera in the housing & go swim to get the photos. I wish it was that easy. Taylor purchased these two canvas prints from me last week. Thanks for the support Taylor!
