Sail Through Newport Harbor

Sail Through Newport Harbor

July 12, 2012

Over the past couple of month, between watching the Newport to Bermuda start and the AC45s racing for the America's Cup, I've been visiting Newport Harbor an awful lot, both by land and sea.  And of course, I had my camera with me every time!  While I was taking pictures of the races and competitors, I was also snapping away at passing spectators, charters, and day sailers.  I liked a lot of these shots just as much as the regatta photos, and wanted to share them with you all.

To let everyone know, just about all the boats pictured below are available for charter!  Adirondack II can be booked through Sailing Excursions, Aquidneck through Sight Sailing of Newport, and American Eagle (a 12 Metre with America's Cup history) through America's Cup Charters.  A couple other charter companies I've heard about include 12 Meter Charters and Seascope Yacht Charters.

Be sure to check out my Cruising & Casual Racing section of my Photography Catalog for more images like these, including photos of cruising boats, day sailors, charters, and casual summer racing series!
How I got these shots:  Nikon D80, Nikkor 70-200mm VRII

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.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
