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

Chaunchoo Pichoo the Film

We just finished editing our 2018 re-cap video, “Chaunchoo Pichoo the Film”.

Chauncey Robinson and I have been working all year round to gain some clips for a Florida Surf Film. As many of you know I am a full time photographer and sell photos to brands for my income… so, this project kinda doubled the work load this year. For every photo i have of Chauncey getting barreled or doing an air I also needed one of just as much value as a video clip. With the help of Filmers/Photographers Jacob Strahlo and Jeffery O’Niell we were able to mix up a pretty good feature based mostly at Sebastian Inlet and with the exception of a great, recent trip to the Outer Banks.

We definitely had our challenges. It wasn’t that great of a year for surf down here in Florida. What opportunity we did have we made the most of. Last Winter is really why this video is even put together, those January storms last year were epic.

All that being said, it’s time to really take this project to new levels. Filming for Chauncey’s next video possibly starts this afternoon. Hopefully we can have a couple more regions in the world included but if it’s just another Florida Film we’ll do our best to represent the state to its fullest.

Let’s hope for a full year of surf and opportunities. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit OUR site and watch this video :)

Chris & Leslie

I had the opportunity to do some photography for my friends, Chris & Leslie, wedding.

December 30th, 2018.

Chris Yergans and Leslie Sorenson of Vero Beach, FL tied the knot. It was a beautiful back yard setup, Intimate and fun.

Here’s a piece of the story. It was hard to choose which images to include in this gallery so I added some key moments for optimal cuteness.

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!
