Waves are a pure display of the oceans magnificent power and beauty. The unpredictability of every set, every wave, and every break, is what excites me the most! I love the rush and challenge in getting better photographs after every wave and even enjoy getting tossed up the beach (as sometimes you have to take a beating to get the best shot). While I have a lot of fun playing in the waves, there are many times that I am reminded: I am not in charge out there - the ocean is. We all believe we know what we are doing when we get in the ocean, but no matter how much experience you have, the raw power and force that the ocean embodies deserves the utmost respect. I have a strong appreciation for the rush of energy that comes over me as each wave passes and never take it's strength for granted.All of this being said, the beauty, power, and danger that the ocean possess, has me wrapped around it's finger, like a drug. I return to it again and again trying get better angles and photographs, but ultimately for a good time. Check out my collection of shorebreak and offshore waves below!
