Bali Report 08.23.12 "Machado Golden Hour Tube"
Yesterday it was great to talk to some familiar faces. Here Rob Machado takes a speed line during the golden sunset. Rob has a funny way of making it look so easy. Rob had two deep tubes and super stylie carving cutback.
Also hung with Chris Ward and talked about his recent win over here. Shooting with him today.
Thanks all for your support.

This mornings golden tube. .
I’ve been shooting with my 16-35 for a couple months now. Decided to throw on the 70-200. I love the compression of the background and gives you a better sense the wave. .

Parting Shot For The Week
Who can resist staring at the ocean when there is such a amazing power at times. I remember this day so vividly. Some of the backwash explosions were 15-20 feet in the air. Being in the water to witness this stunning display of energy always leaves me speechless. .
Hope you had a great week and better one this week. .

I put a flyer up on this group of photos. .
This other sunset photo is from earlier in the week. What a great week we had. If you have any name suggestions for this sunset, please comment. .

So excited to start out the new year and see what is in store for us. I’ve been a bit under the weather last four days so I’m having to pull one from a month ago. It tore me up. I always like shooting the last day and the first day of the year. But plenty more time to go. Lol
Hope you enjoy and happy New Year’s. .

Curling Rays .
This is a shot from yesterday. I love coming to the close of year. So awesome to reflect how blessed we have been throughout the year. And it never seems to fail that I score the last few days of the year. It’s like God saying “I’m not done with you yet”. Thanks @izabellaarosee for helping me come up with a name.

I just want to wish all my family and friends a great holidays. Thank you so much for all your love and support throughout the year.

Rocket flare Tonight
Tonight was a lucky chance that I was shooting under the San Clemente pier and saw this rocket which was deployed from Vandenberg Air Force Base. I have to admit I was fumbling around trying to get my camera together because I was shooting HDR and long exposure. So my settings were all off. And after it was done but left an amazing chem trail over the San Clemente pier. I got a chance to shoot a five shot pano. Which I think will end up looking really good. .
Let me know if you were able to capture this stunning event.

“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.
