North Shore, Oahu.
I’ve been splitting my time between California and Hawaii lately. After a few action packed weeks shooting in San Francisco and Southern California, I’m headed back to warm waters today. I live 2 blocks from the beautiful, cold, stormy ocean in San Francisco, but spending hours each day in warm, tropical waters is the best. Let’s all plan some more shoots in Hawaii!

Nootka Island, BC for Tiny Atlas Quarterly Winter Solstice Issue

Check out the beautiful new issue of Tiny Atlas Quarterly-  amazing stories and imagery. I’m very excited to have my latest British Columbia adventure featured. Many thanks to Raph Bruhwiler for showing us such a good time, and Tatchu Lodge for the epic adventures and dreamy treehouse. Big props to all the people working hard to make Tiny Atlas Quarterly as amazing as it is, and all the people who supported the kickstarter campaign to make the printed issue happen.

Nootka Island, British Columbia for Tiny Atlas Quarterly- The journey up north to the far reaches of BC was everything I hoped for- bears, timber wolves, orcas, surf, salmon, crazy Canadians, nights spent reading in a cedar treehouse, bonfires on the beach, … I’m busy editing the images for a piece in the upcoming Tiny Atlas Quarterly- in the meantime, please consider contributing to the Kickstarter campaign to fund this gorgeous, unique indie magazine founded by photographer extraordinaire Emily Nathan: “Tiny Atlas Quarterly is the culmination of what happens when art directors, designers, photographers, writers, stylists, digital techs, photo assistants and other friends and contributors from the creative corps collaborate on visual projects of their own designing.” http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tinyatlas/tiny-atlas-quarterly. PS- many thanks to Photo District News for highlighting this image!

British Columbia- I’ll be in BC all week, shooting for Tiny Atlas Quarterly, surfing and hopefully catching some fish! We’ll be on a little island off the west coast of Vancouver Island- it is a super wild, remote place, so if you don’t hear from me, contact my agent directly as I’ll have limited web/phone access.

Órale! Back to Mexico tonight! Here are some images from my last trip there a few months ago with  Story Worldwide for a feature on Huatulco, in Southern Oaxaca state. I’ve spent a ton of time in Mexico, including driving through Mexico for 6 months in a WV van a few years ago, but I hadn’t been to this amazing stretch of coastline before. Great food, perfect surf, lovely people, not overtaken by condos and hotels. 

I’m not afraid to admit that I love LA. I’ll be working here all week, staying in a great house in Santa Monica that I rented for myself and the crew. I get tired of hotels, and it’s fun to pretend I live here for a little while… Here are a few images from another recent shoot down south.

I’ve been in Bali for the last 10 days. It is ridiculously nice here- lovely people, great food, perfect surf, dreamy houses and hotels. Sure, it’s roasting hot, riding my scooter amidst giant buses is terrifying, and it’s really hard to deal with pre-production for upcoming jobs from here, but it will be hard to drag myself away in another week to head home. This is an image of the farm house we’ve been renting in Balian. Today, off to Uluwatu!

My friend Ward Robinson’s magazine Western Civ is awesome…Check out this feature on the trip we took to El Salvador to build a school and surf. Traveling and working there was paradise, my surf images illustrate this story.

I Heart Japan

I recently spent a few weeks shooting and exploring Japan- the trip was full of amazing food, lovely people, crazy adventures,  and some perfect little islands with great surf. I  shot 2 assignments while I was there- those are still under wraps, but here are some outtakes.
