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.

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.

Solar eclipse 2017. Posted by @cool_photos and @weatherchannel
I can only assume that maybe this is a composite or taken from another location. Being our eclipse was at 10:21 and the sun would've been a lot higher. But still an epic shot. The weather channel did not post a photographer credit.

Tonight's the big sunset.

I was trying out some new equipment. New over under port. It was hard to worry about the under when the over was just over-the-top. Hope you got some out there. We don't this kind of weather to often. Especially after all the June gloom we've had. Lol mahalo

Tonight I got to spend time with my daughter Bella. She took over creative control and the camera to capture this amazing example of depth of field. She has a good eye. May be better than mine.

First Light at State Park
Two days ago I caught the sunrise and it was absolutely stunning. There's nothing better than that first light hitting the waves. This image is full frame with a 50 megapixel camera. Such a clean file. This is going to make an awesome print on our HD Aluminum.

Swimming & Photographing Humpback Whales. Sep. 14th - 21st

It is long been top on my list to swim and photograph humpback whales in Tonga. My dream is now about to come true. Not only am I going to be able to experience this, but I am going to be able to share it with a small group of friends. I will be hosting a trip of a lifetime. This means I will be able to spend time with a small group, sharing my expertise in photography and preparing your images for print. Oh yeah, did I mention will be swimming with whales in Tonga. Are you kidding me. LOL is one of the longest running tour groups in Tonga. I have been fortunate enough to team up in hosting a bucket list adventure. You don't have to be a photographer to go on this tour. This is open to every adventure seeker. Bring any sort of camera and I will help you get the shot of a lifetime.

Please go to and also message me if you are interest. We only have four spots available. So please respond right away.
