Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

Right or Left?

Though neither of these waves are surfable, they sure do make for great "Mind Surfing". Here's two A-Frames to dream about. 

How about this 2ft face to peak through. 

Same day, almost the same spot as the previous, this 2ft face shows a little more texture on the lip as water meets water. 

There's plenty more of these to come. The conditions have been a little on the small side to surf, but pretty perfect for getting awesome Surf Art. 

Let me know which frame is your favorite! 

Thanks for checkin in,

Vero Beach Shorebreak, Post 2.

Here is another MegaPost! Barrels from this past weekend.. I was a kid in a candy store out there.. It seemed as if every wave that came in was just perfectly shaped and had something neat to offer. 

This post will be the second of three post from the weekend. I do have some more that I can't wait to show. But, first check these out. Let me know what you think! Vero Beach is potentially one of the best spots I have shot surf at, only time will tell, it may just become my favorite spot and these photos say why. 

The above is a wide angle shot from saturday. I put that there as a comparison to the following 40mm shots I got. The difference really was in form though... The waves were good on the weekend, but perfectly shaped on Monday Morning. 

Little amounts of perfection in every wave. 


The above is yet another all time favorite. I love the color coming in from behind the wave. I think the water was super blue and when the sun hit it, it created a beautiful green. Awesome! 

Above: Form & Perfection!

The above two images are instances of Focus. I love the focus right in the barrel of the wave on the larger barrel, and the close focus on the second smaller wave. 

I'm digging this stretch of beach. I can't wait to share more! I can't wait to shoot here again.. I've gone out now a handful of times and its never been over 3ft. I know it can get better than this, and from what I hear it will get much better than this. Yay! This is going to be fun. 

Thanks so much for checking in! Please share, there's a few options below to share on different Social platforms.. :)

Surf in Vero Beach, FL.

As promised here are the Surf shots from the weekend... I didn't spend a lot of time shooting photos, surfing just sounded like too much fun! I did have to put down the housing to pick up a board, glad I did. 

Tatum, River, and I met up with friends Buddy & heather Brown, and Donothan for a lil glassy surf sesh. Waves were waist to chest and a little on the mushy side, perfect day to take out the longboards. 

 

Here's my take of Photos: 

I never use my 50mm shooting surf, so these images are going to look a lot different than what I usually get. Whether intentional or not the 50mm gives water photography a very artsy feel... I dig it. 

I have never shot shore break with a 50mm either.. but after shooting these few images I know that this is a look I will try to be perfecting. Although with small beach break like these its almost impossible to get the 50mm into the barrel, I still think it gives an ascetic look that a wide angle will never be able to capture. You judge. 

Fun times in Vero Beach. So blessed to have the friends and family God has given me and the time in the Sand, Sun & Waves.

A weekend of Paradise in Vero Beach.

Shoots, this last weekend was a blast. 

It started with an invitation that I wasn't even sure was meant to be a real invite, well, turns out it was more than sincere. My in-laws long time friends(the Brown's) live over in Vero Beach, Florida, they know my wife Tatum pretty well and know that I am crazy about surf. The invitation was to get away and enjoy a relaxing weekend on the east coast. To say the least I jumped on it! I didn't even think twice about it... it's time to see some waves and get my feet sandy. We took off. 

It's fun not knowing where you are going or what its going to be like when you get there.. I love adventures. But these days adventures seem to be a little more tricky than what they used to be. Once upon a time I packed my car with everything I owned and was gone, now I pack my car full of my 4 month old daughters things and then attempt to fit my own gear. Times have changed, so the adventure has also changed. I wasn't sure what it would be like going to the Brown's home with River Lee and Tatum, turns out, not a problem at all. We were greeted with tons of love and an open house.  

I started my mornings off with some super fun shore break in the cold weather. 34 degrees and soaking wet... buuurrrr.... Very worth it! 

To add to the excitement we were able to meet up with our good friends Blake and Chelsea. We spent the day in Sebastian soaking up the sun and enjoying the surf. 

The surf was pretty tiny, but fun! Blake did what he could and I stuck my head in a few barrels.. perfect day. 

The sun came out and made it a fantastic day for the beach. River thought so... Of course she had a photo shoot, to darn cute to not. 

These Photos by Chelsea Erwin. A huge Thanks to Blake & Chelsea for cruising up the coast to hang out with us! Love you guys.

Yup, even after all that I still found some time to enjoy a Moon rise over the Ocean. I've never seen a full moon rise like this before.. I guess the East Coast does have some perks! It was AweMazing! I shot it all with a wide angle.. I apologize for that, because it was better than what my photos show. 

...and that is that... one weekend in the books. 

 

Thanks so much to Buddy & Gail Brown for opening your home to my family. We hope to see you again soon. 

Mahalo,
