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
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

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

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.

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.
