Pro-Am on the last day of Sailing

September 16, 2014

The seasons are changing and everyone is looking ahead to autumn.  But before the summer was over and school was back in session, the Wickford Sailing Association had one last day of classes which I was lucky enough to be on the water for!  

It was a picturesque summer day, beautiful sun and temperatures, a steady seabreeze, and the Racing class was hosting a Pro-Am Regatta in conjunction with students from the Intro to 420 class.  It was a fun lighthearted day of friendly junior sailing competition as everyone got their last laughs in out on the water before awards and the official end to summer sailing!  The Racers had the opportunity to sail with friends from other classes, and the Intro students had a chance to try out a more competitive setting as they started to think about next summer.

Back to school kids! See you next summer :)

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.
