Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

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! 

Sebatian Inlet with Tommy and Chase.

Its already been a couple weeks since we had a decent day of surf, these summer lulls are setting in and its making my head hurt. On the other hand its been awesome to get out and fish, explore more of Florida while the ocean lays flat, which has really been the reason this blog post hasn't happened sooner. 

In that, these shots are from a fun day spent at Sebastian Inlet with Tommy Coleman and Chase Modelski. Also there are a few good images of surf coach Michel Flores and and South African Rigard Smit. 

It was another day of shooting from shore for me as my water housing is getting some leak repairs done. I guess when you use it as much as I do maintenance is required. :/ 

They surfed, we fished, we surfed some more soaking up every bit of swell we could before this long flat spell. Check it out. 

Chase Modelski is a ripper! Hard to believe I haven't linked up with him sooner, but glad I have now.  

South African Rigard Smit enjoying the tropical temps of our florida waters.

Tommy taking care of close outs. 

My daughter River hanging out with me on the beach. Its pretty rad to be able to bring her to work. She's styling some VonZipper's and a lot of SunBum! 

Chase. 

There's only one person I have ever seen rip tiny waves apart like Tommy Coleman, and that is his surf coach Michel Flores. This Brazilian knows how to get performance out of his surf boards in every condition. 

Chase Modelski reminds me of Chauncey Robinson. I'm seeing a lot of similarities in the way these guys surf.

Afternoon Sessions in board shorts. Chase loving some spring time air. 


Tommy's backhand snap is ridiculously dangerous. 


And his fin release moves nail are sure to grab attention. 

I haven't seen Blake Spier much lately, looks like he is always heading to cool places on planet earth, stoked to link up with him on this classic Sebastian Inlet first peak air revo. 

Groms. 

Since I was shooting from the beach I figured I may as well make a short edit. Tommy Coleman has his air revo's on lock making this easy. 

 
 

That's all from one day. So much fun. 

Thanks a lot for checking into my site, hope you enjoyed.

Panama with Brock Taylor.

This spring I went on a trip with Brock Taylor and my wife Tatum. We headed down south to Panama where we enjoyed a blacksand beach, fish tacos, and some pumping surf. 

I created an Adobe Slate to tell the story as well as adding a video edit from the help of Tatum. 

Check it out here. 

Enjoy and thank you for visiting my website.

The Barrel Post.

We've had a few proper days in what seem to me to be an extremely slow winter. But, the days we have had are some really good days. 

About a week ago we had an amazing south swell pop up. It wasn't huge, but the shape was perfect. There's been claims by many that this was the best barrel day of their lives. Well, take a look and decide if you think it would have been fun. 

Waking up to Central Florida blessings. 

not huge, but very playful. 

I think a lot of people had their eyes locked onto views like this. 

Brock Taylor on the hunt. 

Chauncey Robinson. 

 I wasn't able to swim long, the current was gnarly but the views were epic. 

Unknown to me in left hand drainer. 

Matthew Glenn. 

Brandon DeFillipo. 

Matthew freaked these pelicans out. 


I had to give up on swimming, just wan't getting the results I wanted. So I headed into the beach to shoot lifestyles of the Chaun. 

Epic running lifey. 


The views from the beach weren't to bad, so i stuck around to snipe off a few. 

Daniel Glenn came to play. 

Daniel Glenn. A guy walked by me and commented, "why would you do an air instead of get barreled??". I would say why not do a big air over a barrel section, seems fun to me! 

Matthew Glenn, little chopper. 

It was a-frames and offshores. Great job Florida. 

Brock Taylor practicing barrel rides for an upcoming trip to Central America. 

Daniel and Brock working together to gain scale on wave hight and air hight. 

Mike Knapp logged serious barrel time. 

Give Daniel Glenn some steep sections and watch him explode. 

Every time I looked, Mike Knapp getting pitted. 

My buddy Kieth said he made more barrels this day than any other time he can remember. 

Daniel, seriously. 

 

Brandon DeFillipo tearing in on his backhand. 

 

Senior Brock. He's always out to have a good time. 

 

Really good surf. 

Where were you!!? 

Seriously.. that right. 

 

Another of Kieth. 

I've been fishing with Chris Yergans a lot lately and I can tell you both his surfing and fishing are on point. 

Not sure who this gentleman is, but i'm pretty sure he would be stoked to see this sequence. If you know him let him know! 

Scenic Florida. 

Another unknown to me reaping the benefits of a good wind swell. 

Yergans catching barrels like they're snook. 

This guy is stoked. 

Chaunchooooo. 

Mike Knapp pretending he's still in Hawaii. 

Where were you Volume 2. 

The Chaun. Forever known as, The Chaun. 

Brandon DeFillipo almost able to stand up, and he's a big kid. 

Matthew Glenn packed up a few lefts.

Another unknown gliding through some clean barrel space. 

Looking into the hunny hole. 

Chris Yergans on this like a redfish in the mangroves. 

Yergans new approach to barrel riding. 

 

Daniel Glenn kinda made the surf pay, hacking it to pieces.

Sorry about a ton of lame captions and non-sense. Its hard to spend this much time at a computer. :/

I hope you scored this day! If you know people in these photos please feel free to share this post with them. I'm sure they will be grateful. 

Thanks for all the good times boys.

South Florida Sand Bars.

South Florida saw some of the best swell people can remember. Monday turned out to be an absolute glory day for surfers in the sunshine state as a huge 'nor easter pulsed swell our way. 

I'll do feature on the swell once the mags get done running content. Until then check out this image I got of Matthew Glenn in a very thick sand dredger. This surf was not for the faint of heart.

Aloha! 

Hope you scored as well.
