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...
It's wonderful to bring together things that you love, and for me that meant a morning photoshoot of yoga on the beach. Alyssa
is a yoga instructor in Rhode Island, and we collaborated on a morning shoot featuring an all white outfit with the sea for our backdrop. We played with reflections in the water, shapes with the poses, and I was absolutely captivated by the brilliant and strong morning...
Good swell doesn't come terribly often to Rhode Island during summer months, unless you like longboarding days in 2 footers. But a couple Fridays ago we were surprised with a day or so of chest to head high sets rolling up the coast.
The forecast was only for 3-4 ft, but after swimming out at Matunuck bright and early I checked the buoy report and it was still 6 ft at 9 seconds! Definitely bigger...
This year is the Hinckley Company's
90th Anniversary. That's almost a full century of gorgeous luxury yachts made in America. Since 1928, Hinckley has been building boats in coastal Maine in the waters of Southwest Harbor. It was fitting that we should return to such a classic backdrop to photograph the newest launch, the newly designed Picnic 40
I drove up to Bar Harbor, for the fourth time in...
Summer summer summer! In celebration of summer I rose bright and early to get to the beach for a 5am photoshoot with model Elise. We wanted some golden hour beachy surf lifestyle shots, and we had the whole place to ourselves to play! What started on land quickly moved into the water as we both climbed into wetsuits to enjoy the early morning light.
The only thing we were missing were proper...
Between the fog and rains, the hot weather of summer is here. I have a long to-do list of spots to drone, but in the dull gray days of winter I decided to wait until the grass and trees were green to hit a few spots. And while I still have a long list of things I want to accomplish this season, I was able to tick off a few things on an aerial tour of Jamestown just the other week.
I started over...
It's been a cool and rainy past couple of weekends over in Newport, but I was onsite at Fort Adams to celebrate the Volvo Ocean Race Newport stopover and Leg 9 Restart!
These one design Volvo 65s have been sailing around the world in a one-of-a-kind race that is the pinnacle for many performance sailors. The race happens every 3 years and pushes the limits of endurance and adventure sailing. All...
Two sunrise shoots in just a few weeks, I'm on a roll! On a sunny warm morning, I still slept through my first alarm, but as the sky began to lighten I got myself out of bed, grabbed my drone
and headed out the door to explore the rocky coast in Newport.
Different tides can expose different rock formations, and this particular morning with low tide and a bit of wave action, I launched off Ocean...
As summer quickly approaches, there are pros and cons to shooting sunrise. Big pro is it's warmer out. Even before daybreak you may only need a light jacket, which makes getting up in the dark much easier compared to when it's below freezing outside. By far the biggest con is the days are getting longer, and the sun is rising earlier. It's not even midsummer and already sunrise is at 5:30am. For...
I found myself on Cape Cod for a few hours not too long ago, and while I didn't know what I might photograph, I had packed my full seascape kit
just in case. Luckily, with some local knowledge from friend and fellow photographer Cody DeGroff
, we explored a few spots throughout Orleans and Chatham with an eye on the sky for sunset.
The tide continued to drop as we drove around, finally...
