Beach Yoga with Alyssa

Beach Yoga with Alyssa

July 17, 2018

It's wonderful to bring together things that you love, and for me that meant a morning photoshoot of yoga on the beach.  Alyssa is a yoga instructor in Rhode Island, and we collaborated on a morning shoot featuring an all white outfit with the sea for our backdrop.  We played with reflections in the water, shapes with the poses, and I was absolutely captivated by the brilliant and strong morning light.  We were at the beach for over an hour, wrapping by 8:30am, both of us getting thoroughly covered in sand, but it was absolutely worth it!

This entire session was shot with my Nikon D850 and 50mm lens.  I love shooting prime for lifestyle, getting as much feels as possible with shallow depth of field and weird cropped compositions.  While I shot with a combination of prime lenses on my last yoga shoot, I solely used my 50mm this time around.

And with Alyssa's summer tan and the white outfit, I couldn't help but do a black and white edit for this series!  I hope you're as in love with these shots as I am

Warm Getaways
Warm Getaways

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

Board Portraits // Experiments
Board Portraits // Experiments

April 30, 2019

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

Snowy Surf Sessions
Snowy Surf Sessions

March 26, 2019

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
