Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

Quick trip to OBX

It’s been a pretty wild year of finding all sorts of photo work outside of surfing and action sports. The work is of course awesome, it’s mostly fishing and boating or something like that so I cannot complain. However, it’s really taking me away from surf. Not the ocean, just the surf. I’ve been a little anxious waiting all winter for a real proper winter swell to hit but that just hasn’t happened this winter. 

So, off to the outer banks.  

Forecast kinda got sketchy for a second,but we went with our gut and the original Surfline forecast. We packed up and off we went.

It was kinda firing.  

The wind forecast scared us a bit but Jason Hines was on it, utilizing at least five different forecasting sites he was a step ahead of it.

Lucas Rogers, no doubt snagging the better waves the first morning we were up there. He was putting on a backside barrel clinic.

Quentin Turko is an absolute charger. I wanted to upload an entire sequence of this shot but it’s difficult to do from a phone on the road. :/    visit my Instagram @natehphoto to see the whole sequence.

I think that’s going to do it for this post. I have a bunch of video and tons more photos so I’ll probably try to post another update.  

until then, thanks for visiting my blog

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... :)

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.

Panama

Just got back from a 10 day trip down to the Pacific Coast of Panama along with my wife Tatum and Brock Taylor. The trip was so adventurous and exciting. We pretty much went out to no-mans-land to score one of Brock's favorite waves. 

This is my first look at most of these images and I just wanted to get an update out there quick for family and friends. We're stacked on photos and video, so its going to be a while till the whole story comes out.

 

Stoked to share this first look.

Panama was so good to us. 

Home sweet home for ten days. We barely left that long, black sand beach for the majority of the ten days. 

Right out front of the beach house we stayed at. The shore break was epic all week.

Brock charged so hard all week. Can't wait to share his good shots. 

The beach house was amazing as well as the housekeeper, Matt. He was our tour guide and surf buddy, could not have asked for more.  

 

The Last day in Panama City was short but a highlight of the trip! We wondered the streets for a few hours before heading home. Well worth our time. 

Again thanks for looking. I can't wait to show what we got. 

Gracias me amigos.
