Sun and Salt Water

Natural lighting. Perfect waves. All over the world, sparkling shores provide the perfect sets for breathtaking photo shoots.

Sun and Salt Water

I shot this in Central California with pro surfer Matt Rockhold. We were lucky the waves were perfect for what we were trying to do.

Searching for waves in Big Sur, California. Shot with a Nikon D3X, NIKKOR 24-70mm and SanDisk Extreme Pro CF card. I had to stand in a patch of poison oak to get the shot.

I set up this portrait shot in Big Sur, CA. I used off-camera flash to add just a little pop to the surfer.

This was shot in the Monterey Bay area with a Nikon COOLPIX AW100 and a SanDisk Extreme Pro SD card. I've always wanted to get this shot, so once I got a waterproof point-and-shoot I gave it a go.

I woke up to perfect conditions in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I arrived at the break just after sunrise. There was no wind, and the waves were lining up. There’s something magical when it just all comes together.
