Baby Beach Turtle – 20 x 80 inch canvas wrap

Folks, This art piece is titled Baby Beach Turtle I photographed this one on the island of Maui just a couple of weeks ago. Some people will be confused about the title of this image because clearly, this turtle is not a baby, but those who live near where I took this image, will understand […]

Weather beaten buildings, a visual window into the past.

Look how warped the window is on the far left of the green buidling.

“Lucky, we live Hawaii”

As I’ve been transitioning away from the surf industry over the past couple of years, I’ve been wandering further afield from the north shore all the time, in my quest for new and different imagery. There’s been way less emphasis on surf and a lot more importance on photographing the beautiful nature of this place. […]

Classic big wave moment: Randy lane at Outside Avalanche

This was back in 1999 and I was up in a helicopter, randomly photographing tow surfing. Nothing organised as such. I was checking out these guys at Outside Avalanche when this one guy on an old school stand-up jetski caught a Huge wave and just got real close to the

The Surf Bus

The north shore is no stranger to tour bus’s. We see ’em all the time, but it’s not every day that you see one like this. This is the surf bus. Some friends of ours are running tours to see the surf beaches. They used a bunch of my photos to make their bus look […]

Lightning in paradise….

We had some pretty electric weather last night, up here on the north shore. Every several seconds, there’d be a volley of lightning, but unlike some past storms, it wasn’t raining right upon us, so getting a few frames off on the camera wasn’t as tricky as usual. I set it up, looking up at […]

The Annual Aloha Bowl in Hawaii

Mid time entertainment at the Aloha Bowl at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Lanes dad just visited us for Christmas here in Hawaii and while he was here, he took us to the Sheraton Aloha Bowl, which is a pretty important, annual footballmatch in Honolulu at Aloha Stadium. This year, the match was between the University of Hawaii Warriors and a team from Tulsa, Arizona. I distinctly remember […]

Wave of the day – Aqua Gold Curl

Aqua Gold Curl

Todays wave of the day was photographed very early morning, in fact, right on the moment that the sun appeared over the hill. There was just the right amount of water flowing back down from the beach to give this wave the extra bit of curviature that it needed to produce this moment for my […]

Lone wave at Ehukai for today’s sunset image.

Twilight Peak

Folks, we’ve had a bit of rain move in and although it stayed quite sunny on this part of the island for most of the day, It started to rain just before sunset, so I didn’t manage to get a shot today. Not to worry though, I only have a million other Hawaii’an sunsets already […]

Kalani Chapman’s awesome B-day party at Rocky Point.

Freedom's progress playing LIVE at Rocky point.

I’ve shot a couple of pretty cool surf sessions with Flynn Novak over the past couple of days and he called me up this afternoon and invited me down to Rocky Point for Kalani Chapman birthday party. Sure enough, I’ve rocked up and there’s the full live band: “Freedom’s Progress” belting out their cool brand […]

Sharks Cove evening glow

Sharks Cove - Evening Glow

Folks, just sharing this image with you from a couple of nights ago, here on the north shore. This is Shark’s Cove on the north shore of Oahu, under a very, very late twilight sky. You can even see the moon and one of the first stars to show in the evening sky. This print […]

What lies beneath

An overview of Waimea Bay's legendary reef.

Folks, you ever wondered what the reef might look like at such extraordinary big wave locations such as Pipeline or Waimea. I’ve been fortunate enough to fly over the north shore a couple of times when there was little in the way of surf. As a result, the reef’s become very clear to the eye, […]

Awesome new botanic images added

Nature Graffiti series.10

I’ve taken a bit of an interest in botanics lately and just the other day, I noticed these cool plants near where I live and so I went back there yesterday and photographed a bunch of pretty cool images which I’ve added to my botanics collection. As with most of my images, these are also […]

Kahana Sunrise

Sunrise over Kahana Bay, on Oahu, Hawaii.

This is another of my images from yesterday morning’s glorious sunrise here in Hawaii. I was actually headed at the time for Lanikai, further to the south but as I rounded Kahana Bay, I could see that the sun was almost rising already, so I scouted out a spot and waited for the first rays […]

Fireworks as 4th of July celebrations descend on Turtle Bay

4th of July fireworks at Turtle Bay, on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Hey folks, hope you’re all having a great 4th of July weekend, those of you in the U.S. Here’s a picture of the fireworks from Turtle Bay last night with the infamous Pool Bar in the foreground…

Home Sweet Home

Landing in Honolulu

Lane and I just spent the last couple of days over on the BIG island of Hawaii, relaxing and checking the place out a little. Lane grew up on the Big island, so she’s always stoked to go back there. She even got a couple of decent surfs in at Banyons while we were there. […]

Another feather in the cap

Alma Surf magazine Mar-Apr 2010 issue

One thing that we surf photographers have always prized pretty much higher than anything else is the cover shot, particularly one that’s done with a purely art driven purpose, as opposed to what most covers are these days, which are usually pictures that are not much more than logo shot for the big surf companies. […]

My mate Dan over at the Grafik Museum, loves it when I throw a new batch of images at him. Check it out…

fins n’ palms

fins n' palms

I love finding pictures in all shapes, colors, tones and contrasts. This one seems to have captured a little bit of everything. The old rusting pick up truck with the surfboards hanging out the back, backdropped by a brilliant red twilight sky at Haleiwa beach park, on the north shore. Just perfect.
