Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

A Collection to MN.

Its not all that often that I get to send out a collection of my work to places like MN. But this last month I got the opportunity to do so! 

Here is a cool collection of images I captured during travels and at home, from Vero Beach to Panama and Barbados. 

Take a look. 

These images are both captured in Vero Beach, Florida. Now sublimated onto Aluminum with a float mount they are ready to hang on a wall. The Aluminum Prints have a tendency to make the water look real, so gazing at these really puts you back in that moment. 

The Top image is "Light Filter" and is a Limited Edition Print #2/25. 

The Second image is "Touch Down" and is a Limited Edition Print #1/25 (#2 is currently hanging out as a 20x30 canvas in Vero Beach Yoga Barre

I'm particularly excited my client picked out this image. Shot in Panama and simply named "Panama Sunset". This was taken my first evening being there and its something I will never forget watching. 

"Panama Sunset" is a Limited Edition Print #1/10. The other 9 may go quick so don't hesitate putting this on your wall. 

Another look at the first two. 

"Rock of Confidence" as a negative before being heat pressed onto the Aluminum. This image was taken in Barbados last fall. 

My client is a stock trader, financial planner up in MN and he really liked the idea of putting this image into his office as a reminder of confidence and symbol of security, hence the name "Rock of Confidence"

It is now printed out as 40x60 on Aluminum and is a Limited Edition #1/10. 

... and here they are. 

If your living in as cold of a state as MN I'm sure it will be nice to look at your wall and feel the tropics in these images. 

Sorry for the glare, the Aluminum prints are very glossy and reflective. I love that about them, makes the colors and details POP. 

Its a lot of fun getting my work out to people for them to enjoy. 

If you've seen anything here that interests you please email me at natehphoto@gmail.com and I'll get back to you ASAP. 

With the holidays coming up its not a bad idea... :) 

Thanks for visiting my page!

National Coffee Date.

It only comes once a year, and it's probably the best day of the year. National Coffee Day yesterday became worthy of a blog post. Spent the afternoon with Chauncey Robinson at the Patisserie in Vero Beach, Fl. Sipping on some joe and talking winter surf plans. 

I do love a good cup of coffee and it's hard to find a better cup than what the Patisserie serves up. Pretty cool cafe with amazing food as well. It was the only choice for National Coffee Day. 

I hope you got your fix on yesterday, if not, just dream into these images and pretend like you did. 

I go with black, and when I'm at the Patisserie the Monkey Bread with chocolate chunks gets me every time. 

Waiting in anticipation for that cup of coffee that will change the day, make it better and brighter. 

 Chaun Chaun has been experimenting with tattooing himself. First Tats get dedicated to a cup of Coffee. He's a true surfer.

Thank You for a few minutes and sorry for the worthlessness of this post. But hey, it's all for the coffee.

Florida Spotlight from Surfline.

I'm so amped on this feature which Surfline put out two days ago. 

Inside you will find some seriously good shots from a handful of Florida's finest surf photographers. Also, I am very excited about the interview they gave me in this feature. It's a pretty wild feeling being included with Surfline's top photographers. Stoked is an understatement, blessed is a good way to put it. Shoots Boiz I can't wait for some swell! 

Check it out and enjoy! 

River Lee Underwater.

Teaching River to swim has been a blast! I remember learning to swim myself and I do hope this is a time River can remember for life. She follows right in the foot steps of both Tatum and I. (tatum is amazing underwater...) Such a privilege we have as parents! :) 

The past two days she has really become an underwater girl. Her floaty may possibly be retired at this point. Once your underwater, its hard to be satisfied being above it. 

Here's a short edit I made of River swimming from earlier today. Shot with iPhone 6 and WaterShot Housing.

Thanks for stopping in! 

Have a great week!

River Lee Harrington

Aloha! 

 

Experiencing the life of my daughter River has to be the neatest thing to ever happen to my life. Seeing this little girl that has so much of her Mother and myself in her, yet so independent and unique in everything she likes and does. 

Last evening River and I were at the fountains in Vero Beach playing around with bubbles, shooting photos and such.. She sat down on the concrete corner for on of the pillars and her facial expression was one I haven't yet seen. How can this 2 1/2 year old even contemplate like that? Her mother is an amazing model (tatumharrington.com) and I see River following in those steps. 

Yes, she was very happy and filled with joy while we were playing, we just were able to capture one of her still moments with a serious face. I actually had her do it twice which she re created the expression with no issues at all. 

All around I am feeling like a proud dad with a huge blessing of a family. Praising the Lord for it daily. :) 

My little thinker. Its cool to see her noticing more and more of her surroundings. 

She is the cutest. That modeling talent is shining bright in her. 

Again just so blessed. 

Thank you for checking out my site and have an awesome Sunday.

CA Update, Surf is Pumping.

Hey guys! 

I always mean to post more especially when I'm away on a trip, but usually it ends up with me getting super busy and falling asleep while trying to just edit the photos. Thats definitely been the case this trip. After swimming 3-4 hours multiple times a day in massive surf its been my priority to to rest rather than post. 

So CA has had amazing surf, some of the best conditions seen for a lowers surf comp, and novelty breaks have been going off. Its been a photographers paradise and I wanted to share a glimpse of whats been happening. 

Lower Trestles with Everyone

San Diego with CT Taylor

Strands with Kevin Schulz.

Woke up to a sunrise and offshores. The swell had dropped a little but it was still super fun and very clean. 

Kevin Schuls put in some turns, airs, and barrels. 

Speed skating through the barrel. 

Breakfast at the Harbor House on a Sunday is a must, especially after such a rad session. The lifestyles just came naturally. 

Shoots, it has been awesome! I'm over my head in photos and waiting to get back home before even looking at most of them. I have a few more days out here and I'm looking forward to every second of it. 

Thanks for stopping in! And have a wonderful day.
