I have been drawn to the tremendous body of work by Wayne Levin and a few beautiful images in Shaun Fenn’s lifestyle portfolio for quite some time now. It usually takes awhile for that initial spark to sink in and work it’s magic on my own photography but I have been creating studies for the past year and have finally produced some images I am excited about. Drawing from some of my absolute favorite images created for myself and for Venture Magazine in 2000-2001 in French Polynesia and Hawaii, I have put together my love of the water and my newly discovered passion for portrait photography.
I am using the same housing I used for our trip to French Polynesia and Hawaii. It’s getting a bit yellowed but is still a workhorse for me. I am currently looking into purchasing an SPL Water Housing for surf photography since Merrik is surfing and I am spending more time in the ocean again!!

and I am so thankful for the patience and grace of my two beautiful models, Nicole and Carly!!
