Wickford Harbor at Dusk

Wickford Harbor at Dusk

August 09, 2012

Summer in Rhode Island.  Any Rhode Islander will most likely tell you it's one of the best things about living in the smallest state.  We're lucky enough to have some the most coastline considering our overall size, and not an inch of it is spared in the hot and steamy months of summer.  Not only are there beautiful beaches, but also dozens of picturesque harbors, coves and inlets.  Wickford Harbor is witness to plenty of gorgeous skies and dazzling sunsets throughout the summer, and one night during dinner I saw the light outside and grabbed my camera before it was all gone!  I also seized the opportunity to use my new Tiffen Neutral Density filter to soften the water and create some great long exposures.  Enjoy!
How I got these shots:  Nikon D700, 16-35mm VRII

Board Portraits // Experiments

April 30, 2019

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!
