I’m currently in Arizona for work and it’s killing me to be away from the ocean. Editing photos gives me this rush of energy and rehydrates my addiction to waves. Here are just a few photos that help me keep the stoke alive.
So I really don’t try to sell my photos to the magazines, yes I think it would be cool to be a published photographer but it’s not why I do it. That being said when I get an amazing photo I do send it to a few Editors just to see their response. Here was a photo of Dustin Barca at Honolua Bay on 1/4/12. Photo editors wont publish already public material so after I tried for a few weeks to get it published I forgot I never posted this great shot.
Jullian Wilson pulling into a bomb at Pipeline, I love this photo only because there aren’t any other photogs in the shot (that never happens at pipe haha)
Getting these shot require you getting pitched over the waves, you have to make sure you don’t fall on the surfer
Getting this shot at Pipe resulted in the worse beating I got all winter, I was thrown out of the wave. I wasn’t even trying to take this picture I just grabbed on to my camera for dear life and must have squeezed the trigger
No story about this one, I just like it

Thanks Smiley, I have a good job that keeps me away from the ocean frequently but my love of waves will make me a surf for life

I manage mobile marketing tours. This year I’m managing a Spyder Roadster Demo Tour. I work for 6 months straight then take the other 6 off most likely in Hawaii. I just take off till the money runs out

Many Mahalo’s, I not only love the talent in Hawaii but it was such a beautiful place to call home for a little bit. Looking forward to next winter, SHOOTZ
