Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

River Lee Harrington



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 ( 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.

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. 




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.

Some Evenings Are Better Than Others.


It seems like every time I get in the water there is a new look, a new surprise waiting for me. This last week I saw that there was probably going to be a little bump in the water with some good wind conditions, so after work I cruised down to the beach. I found a pretty spectacular sight! 

Vero Beach has always amazed me with surf conditions. Here's why! 


Glassy Perfection. 


I loved how the light was bouncing off the clouds and water. This is a good example of using light to create interest in water photography. 


The Canon 70D is a machine when it comes to capturing detail. This image has some outstanding focus. 


This Beautiful image is now my most liked photo on Instagram. The lighting is not something you see every evening. 


The Surf & Sand Hotel is quickly disappearing... 


Another Favorite of mine from this evening. Perfect a-frames rolling through as Vero boasts its beautiful sunset colors. 


Glassy, electric feelings. 


After the sun had set with just minutes of light left Tatum jumped in the water to help me capture the best image of the evening. Nothing more stunning than my beautiful wife! Love you Tatum. 

Thanks so much for stopping in! Please share if you dig the photos! Any of these are available for prints as well. :)
