Hinckley Sport Boat 40c

Hinckley Sport Boat 40c

December 11, 2018

It's a new Hinckley!  Not just a new Hinckley... but a whole new Hinckley brand.  Introducing:  Hinckley Sport Boat.  The traditional luxury boat builder is branching out and bringing their unparalleled build quality and attention to detail into a new line of composite build hulls and center consoles.  

Combining luxury with speed, I had the pleasure of photographing the new Hinckley Sport Boat 40c.  With three independently articulating 300hp outboard engines, this baby reaches top speeds of 58mph.  I speak from experience when I say full throttle felt like somewhere between a rocket ship and a hover croft as we blasted along for the fastest and smoothest ride I had ever experienced!

Surf Trip // Nova Scotia

Surf Trip // Nova Scotia

December 04, 2018

I had just gotten back from two weeks in Ireland.  It was late October and Halloween was just around the corner.  I had barely been home a full week when I got the call from Scott Hayward up in Portland, the forecast was shaping up again.  It might be worth it to do a strike mission up north, destination:  Nova Scotia.  We had been planning our first Canadian adventure back in the spring, but real life had gotten in the way and we had to delay our plans as summer rolled around.  Now that we were back into hurricane / winter storm season, it was shaping up nicely and on a Friday afternoon we decided to pull the trigger.  Canada, here we come!

Surf Trip // Ireland

Surf Trip // Ireland

November 21, 2018

This fall was a whirlwind of back to back travel!  After wrapping up in Sheboygan, it wasn't too long before I was on a plane again.  This time I was crossing the Atlantic for my second trip ever to Europe -- my first being to Barcelona back in college.  With Norwegian Air service from TF Green here in Rhode Island direct to numerous locations for budget prices, it was about time I took another trip across the pond.  The travel group would consist of myself, Rhode Island board shaper and surfer Kevin Tanner of Soundings Surf Co, fellow photographer Cody DeGroff of Cape Cod, and my little sister who was itching to return after a semester in Galway several years ago.

The Battle of the Beach -- the surf contest hosted in South County that hails the end of a summer season and the beginning of the surf season in New England.  This year was the 7th inaugural event, hosted in mid September out of Matunuck by Conrad Ferla.  I was invited to photograph the competition from the water, and we had perhaps almost perfect weather with sun and warmth.  
The remnants of...

DJI Mavic Pro 2 // First Photos

October 02, 2018

My DJI Mavic Pro 2 arrived way earlier than expected.  No sooner was it announced and I pre-ordered it on Adorama, and it was at my door within the week! I had been holding off getting a second bird for some time now, just waiting for the Mavic 2 to be announced. The potrability factor was something I desperately wanted, but I figured the second generation would have better image quality and would...

These boats...

Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence

September 18, 2018

July had Hurricane Chris.  August was unbelievably quiet.  Then September came in with Hurricane Florence, and suddenly surfers remembered what it was like to catch waves again!  
This category 4 slammed into the Carolinas, causing massive amounts of damage particularly in flooding in the days and weeks after landfall. But up here in the northeast, we had some wind and rain that parted briefly to...

Moonrise Yoga

September 11, 2018

I try to cram a lot into my summer season.  From the sailing and regattas, to unexpected surf sessions, to lifestyle shoots, not to mention getting out for any landscapes while the trees aren't bare, there's a lot to be done in a short period of time.
Luckily, Alyssa and I got in two yoga shoots while it was beautiful and warm out.  No sooner had we wrapped our morning beach shootin July, then it...

July Summer Surf

July Summer Surf

September 04, 2018

Rhode Island isn't particularly known for summer surf.  You might get the occasional 2ft day but even then it's rare to get multiple good swells during the mid summer months.  This year opened with Hurricane Chris, and it wasn't long after that that I found myself out swimming in the lineup again for some gorgeous longboarding days in late July.
There's not much to say about these sessions other...

I've had a new project lately, bringing motion blurs and slow shutter work to the air with my drone photography.  All it took was a few darker Neutral Density filters and I'm already thrilled my first few flights of this experimentation!
My drone works with a GoPro camera, so I don't really have the manual controls that other platforms might be equipped with. Understanding how to manipulate the...

Surf // Hurricane Chris

Surf // Hurricane Chris

August 03, 2018

The northeast is not known for having good summertime surf. Typically summer swells will only reach 2–3ft, but mid July saw the arrival of gorgeous chest high sets thanks to Hurricane Chris. The tropical storm turned hurricane as it churned offshore, while Beryl weakened and then reappeared off Bermuda. Here in Rhode Island we were met with sun and clear skies, accompanied by buoy reports of about...
