“Heat Run”

Whale Week

I was lucky and blessed to capture this somewhat rare to be filmed moment. A heat run is when 5 to 20 males are chasing one or two females. A very aggressive moment where the males are battling each other while chasing. This is one of our pieces we will be featuring our show/Christmas party Saturday night. Come hear me talking about the experience of a lifetime. 4–7 p.m. at the OC contemporary gallery in San Clemente. Food, drinks, music, and art. It’s our way of celebrating with so many that have been great supporters. Please come and raise a holiday toast with me.

Here is the multitalented @austinkeen47 with one of the best views on this planet. Or at least for those of us that love the ocean. LOL Give him a follow. He’s always got good stuff going on.

Great work brother.

Also added three photos sequence of a different wave.

“Baby Bubbles”

Whale Week Day 2

We call this three-week old calve “Bubbles”. This baby was so curious. Bubbles kept coming up to me and making full eye contact. This photo was shot with a fisheye and she was only 4 to 5 feet away.

Tag and share this if you like it.
I have also attached a flyer for our Christmas party/Tonga Whale art show.
Hope you can make it!

Whale Week

I am finally releasing two collections from my Tonga experience. First off, this was the trip of a lifetime. Words cannot explain being in the water with these gentle giants. This is a part of the first collection called “Black & Whale”. A different dramatic take on some of my better images from this epic trip. I will be posting a different whale shot every day this week. This is leading up to our gallery show/Christmas party on Saturday the 16th. For those not in the area we will be releasing the collections online. Let me know if you can make it to our show.

Offshore Sunset

It is so rare that we get offshore winds the entire day. From sunrise to sunset. These are my favorite days. There was just a couple guys out with perfect little windblown barrels.

Although I love the offshore winds we’ve been having, unfortunately a lot of people are losing their homes. Our thoughts and prayers are going out for those in the fire impacted areas.

I am preparing all this week for our Tonga/Whale art show. I recently went to Tonga to swim and photograph Humpback whales. This was an absolute trip of a lifetime. I can’t wait to share my experience.

Name Suggestions?

I'm asking for your help to name this new images I captured the other day. Sometimes we traveled great distances to capture and photograph stunning images. But many times we only have to look in our backyard/local spots. I love this time of year.

Thanks for your help.

Come see us at the Malibu art festival this Friday and Saturday. Then Sunday at the Encinitas art walk. Mention this post and get a free 5 x 7 signed and Maddie to print.

Backlit Beauty

When you get a deep golden fall sunset mixed with throwing aqua waves, this is the result.

Blue Backwash Flare

More epic waves and weather this week. Crazy how backwash can send a good size wave into over drive.

Here is some local late season southern hemisphere power. The water is so clear at this spot. I love the backlit aqua color. Mother nature's power is so beautiful.

Some fun waves this morning. Nothing like some backwash to make things get a little crazy. Fall is definitely the best time of the year.
