Hinckley // Talaria 48 Flybridge

Hinckley // Talaria 48 Flybridge

February 13, 2018

This past December I photographed my third boat for Hinckley.  It was the coldest shoot we had done on the water thus far, but the Bay was a playground laying in wait just for us!  We jetted under the bridge at sunrise, motored through an empty Newport Harbor, and made our way to Prudence Island for sunset.  I'm finally done editing all of these shots, and happy to share them all with you!

Introducing, the Hinckley Talaria 48 Flybridge in hunter green with custom fighting chair.  Hinckley is known for their gorgeous craftsmanship, attention to detail, and accommodating custom client requests.  This gorgeous 48 footer was built to client specifications not only as a luxury yacht, but also for fishing.  It was a Hinckley first to outfit a fighting chair into a Talaria, and while I'm not much of a fisher myself, it was still beautiful to shoot against the blue backdrop of Narragansett Bay.

For any photographers out there who may be inclined to ask, I primarily shot from a chase boat with my Nikon D750 and 70–200mm VRII lens.  We approached it the same as the recent Talaria 55 shoot, doing shots at speed first before slowing.  As the boat came to rest and we were able to approach a little closer, I switched to my 50mm prime and my 16-35mm wide angle zoom for some variety.  Interior shots could only be effectively achieved with the even wider 14-24mm lens.  Just 2mm really does make a difference!

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

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.

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.
