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.
I just got back from a 2 week long vacation in Hawaii. I basically stayed on a farm just outside of the North Shore. I took a little trip over to Maui for about 4 days to see a friend. It was a great trip and we scored some amazing waves. Here is one from Waimea Bay from one of the biggest days of swell.
Finally we had some nice waves with some decent weather. It’s very rare that we have pumping surf with nice weather. This day was one for the books. My buddy Davo & I got to split this speak for a few hours without anyone around. A beautiful fall day to remember in North Carolina
