The Inertia

Being an East Coast photographer isn’t about showcasing the glamor of big waves and perfect tubes. For me, it’s more about telling the story of individuals. With each photo I try to capture the unique personality and style with which a surfer rides a wave. My photography is about wearing a wetsuit nine months out of the year and going swimming when most folks aren’t even going outside. Because I can’t just walk out my door and be in a tropical surf zone, finding unique angles, creative compositions, and the use of black and white are all methods I employ to optimize the connection viewers have with my photography. In the end, it’s all about the appreciation we all share for the ocean and surfing. Sharing the stoke and connecting with nature and each other is a wonderful thing. In the words of Laird Hamilton: “The biggest sin in the world would be if I lost my love for the ocean.”
