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...
The skies have cleared! It finally feels like winter has departed and made way for spring (if not summer). By mid-month we had several days of calm skies, light breezes, and plenty of sun. I took the opportunity to venture to Point Judith Lighthouse one Friday afternoon with fellow photographer Kat Carney
We arrived with plenty of time before sunset, and after a quick judgement call regarding...
It's been a bit of a dreary spring thus far weather-wise. But when big east coast swell popped up in the forecast last week, I made the journey with a few friends to Cape Cod to hunt for waves. After a morning of searching for the ideal sand bar, we lucked out with some heavy barrels crashing on the beach all morning. A stiff breeze kept the waves clean, but prevented me from doing any droning....
I don't shoot film too often, but it's been on my to-do list of things to incorporate more into my work for the upcoming year. I keep my plastic Holga
"toy" camera in the car, and sometimes I'll throw another film camera in my purse or my camera bag, although my medium format Mamiya 645 1000s is often a brick to pack.
Black and white film was the go-to when I was in school, but nowadays I do...
