NK vs. Prout Regatta

April 23, 2013

I've been looking forward to getting out on the water now that winter has moved on.  Of course, the first day I do get out the weather was much more winter-like than spring-like!  About 45 degrees but a very cold westerly wind made for a chilly day.  I went out with the North Kingstown High School Sailing Team for a home regatta against Prout.  It was a team race, 3 vs. 3, and NK came out on top!  With gusts rolling through it was a breezy day for the sailors (as my last image attests to!) but it was great to see some familiar faces and get some sailing shots.  

These were captured from the finish boat with my long 70-200mm lens and 2x teleconverter.  Took my new D600 out for its first run with action photography, and it performed perfectly!

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.

Snowy Surf Sessions

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.
