Banana Leaf Gecko

I’ve always been a fan of contrast and colour, especially when they randomly appear while I’m on photo surfari. This is a great example with a gecko sunning itself on a banana leaf. Massive amounts of color and contrast resulted in this cool colorful silhouette. Shown here as a 30 x 45 inch canvas, but […]


Photo of the day: Sacred Falls Overview

Today’s featured photograph is an incredible overview image of Sacred Falls on Oahu, photographed from high above in a helicopter. The lush green forest’s in this image give the picture a calming natural feel when hanging as a print or canvas in your home. You can order a print or canvas directly from the site […]


Today’s catch – of waves

I got the water housing wet this morning at Pupukea. I was really kind of syching just to get in the water somewhere because it was so sunny and clean with such a blue sky. My intention was to swim out to the back of Ehukai and shoot some images under water as the surfer […]


Beautiful Sacred Falls on Oahu’s east side

The only legal way to see Sacred Falls is from a helicopter.

I thought I’d turn attention away from the coast today and towards one of Hawaii ‘s most beautiful waterfalls. This is Sacred Falls on the island of Oahu, however it is now an off limits area which basically means you can no longer legally walk into these falls. They had a big rockslide there several […]


Wave of the day – Aqua Twist

from Pupukea on the north shore of Oahu - Aqua Twist

Today’s Wave Of The Day comes to you from one of my favorite places to photograph waves. On certain days of the year, the water at Pupukea Sandbar takes on an amazing aquatic glow. I love to swim and photograph on those days. The colors and contrasts in the resulting images are always stunning. And […]


Classic surf shot – Stuart “Daff” Cadden

Stuart "Daff" Cadden perfectly slotted somewhere, I'd rather not tell you about...

I just posted this classic surf shot of Stuart “Daff” Cadden, in response to an on line coverstion with my mate Bill Morris, who claims that “Daff” had the best pigdog style of any surfer at the time and I’m inclined to agree. Check him out right here… yew!


Wave of the day – Green Shimmer

Green Shimmer

I have thousands of wave images , but this is one of my more recent favorites. Photographed here on the north shore, I captured this gem soon after sunrise. As anyone who knows me will agree, I love to photograph the 1st and/or last hours of the day because this is where all the awesome […]


A few options amongst the big waves on the north shore

Donnie Darnell was getting barreled every wave at Sunset yesterday

Still plenty of swell around folks. They were saying that it would be a lot bigger yesterday and it definitely did pick up a couple of notches, however the brunt of the swell occurred overnight and so it was on the way down. It turned out to be a matter of finding a spot that […]


Winter swells finally here on the north shore

Rockpile just before sunset.

Folks, we’ve had waves here on the north shore for just over a week now, but yesterday it kicked up a notch with 10 foot set waves. I ended up shooting Rockpile both in the morning and again in the afternoon. It always seems that best wavesat the Rockpile can always be found early season. […]


Hawaii’s beautiful Sacred Falls

helicopter overview of Sacred Falls on the east side of Oahu, Hawaii

Folks, One of Hawaii‘s most beautiful waterfalls is located on the east side of Oahu, but has been off limits to the public for the past decade, since a rockslide tragedy killed some folks. Pretty much the only legal way to see the falls these days is on a helicopter charter. This one, I did […]


Ariel view of OFF THE WALL, on the north shore

Off The Wall, ariel view, north shore

Aloha from the north shore of Oahu, where the conditions are pretty much like this picture, right here. It’s warm and sunny and not so many people around right now. For anyone vacationing here right now, it would be heaven-sent. The surf season here on the north shore doesn’t really properly get underway again for […]


fingers of reef

Log Cabins reef on the north shore of Oahu.

Folks, this is another from my series of Oahu overviews, photographed mainly from helicopters. Todays image is a direct overview of the reef at Log Cabins, on the north shore here on Oahu. It’s amazing how much the reef formed at this one place; Log Cabin. This is also some of the most dangerous, shallowest […]


Glamour double-rainbow Print from Hawaii

Double Rainbow over Pupukea

Hey Folks, take a look at today’s glorious picture. A result of swimming with my camera on the famed sandbars of Pupukea, here on the north shore. During the early months of the year, the sand builds up on the sandbar between Pipeline and Rocky Point and the result is pure sandbar bliss. Perfect barrels […]


Wave of the day – “Aqua-blade”

Aquablade

Folks; todays picture of the day comes to you from the ever-amazing Pupukea sandbar, on the north shore. Every year usually around Feb-March, tons of sand gets pushed into the beach at Pupukea, between Pipeline and Rocky Point. During these months, the sand gets groomed into a long series of hollow sandy beach breaks. This […]


The north coast welcoming committee

The north coast welcoming committee: Barry and Kev'

King island is situated in Bass Strait, commonly viewed as amongst some of the roughest seas in the world. It’s open to all manner of weather and swell, sometimes expected, other times, completely unexpected. These guys however are 2 individuals that I’ve totally come to expect to meet when visiting King Island. Usually, we’ll be […]


Beautiful conditions finally return to the north shore

Pancho Sullivan flaring at Pupukea Sandbar, this morning.

It’s been like 2 weeks of bad weather here on the north shore, so it was soooooo good to see the sunny conditions return to the north shore and with no winds. I went for a bit of a swim at Pupukea sandbar this morning with Pancho Sullivan, Carissa Moore and Myles Padaca. I guess, […]


Indonesian dreamscape – “Aqua Peel”

"Aqua Peel" - Indonesia

This from a trip, a couple of years ago in the Mentawai Islands, off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. We were cruising along and spotted this totally random little island, so we dropped anchor off it and I dived over the side of the boat with my water camera. It was a tiny little […]


On my mind

Surf Heaven

Well folks, usually I’m on my way to Australia right about this time of the year and usually, I end up at this very special little island in Bass Strait. I’ve been going there for many years, Seems that if I make it there this year, it’ll be a little later than usual, due to […]


North shore sand bars light up again for 2 day marathon

dreamy clean and uncrowded this morning.

It seems that the picture which I posted yesterday morning, entitled; AquaBlade was a bit of a omen, but in a good sense. That is exactly how the sandbars at Pupukea have been looking for the past 2 days, here on the north shore. The water has been absolutely crystal clear translucence, dreamy blues and […]


PIcture of the day: AquaBlade

Aquablade

Today, I’m featuring one of my current top selling images. This particular image has yielded 2 recent print orders as well as a print sale through my agent WaveRiders gallery gallery recently. Around this time of the year, when the swells get a little smaller and more organised, the sand bars between pipeline and Rocky […]


Giants fail to deter surfers in quest for perfection

Flynn Novak surfing in the land of the giants.

Uh Oh! I’m starting to have flashbacks to that old TV show “Land of the Giants”, but man, the waves are soooooo good, that no one even cared aout the giant dudes.


Davey’s Wavey Gravy. Get your’s today

Sean Davey's Wavey Gravy.

Waves have always been a major target in my viewfinder. My very first photo was of a Wave, way back in 1977. I’ve been building my collection of wave images for somewhere like 25 years now. These images here represent just a handful of the entire collection, but they are some of my favorite wave […]


Torquoise water fun with the Go pro HD

Amazingly both of my pro cameras are on the blink and hence, are on their way to the Canon repair shop at the mo’, so I’ve been enjoying, filming the sandbars with the new Go Pro HD cam. I shot some hand held footage of random surfers and waves, but then, I was able to […]
