Sailing Practice with NK

May 21, 2013

NK Sailing has been getting a lot of attention lately!  The high school sailing team qualified for Nationals this year for the first time in team history!  In my day the team had come close but this time these sailors actually got the chance to fly across the country for the ISSA High School Double Handed Championship in Chicago!  After several days of racing in seriously heavy air, they ended up finishing 16 out of 20 but they had some great top 5 finishes in there.

But before all the hype I visited the team for a practice day in early May.  It was sunny and warm out and just about everyone was in attendance for a terrific practice.  Even Lyle, team alum and former sailing instructor for the majority of these students, hopped in a 420 for some practice races!

More can be found in the Viewing Gallery, where images can be purchased by sailors and family.  Enjoy!

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!
