Footsteps Of Tranquility 30 x 45 inch canvas wrap

FThis art piece is titled Footsteps Of Tranquility It’s downright amazing, how beautiful and served the beaches can be here some days. This was one of those days at Pupukea. Barely a sole on the beach. Lucky, we live Hawaii. There is something about this picture that attracts me too. It has an almost two […]

Shooting amazing Silhouettes

Shooting Amazing Silhouettes. Times have changed a lot with photography, particularly since the arrival of digital photography. There are just so many different cameras available these days for just about any kind of application, ranging from iPhones, to SLR’s, to mirrorless, even GoPros. The most innovative item I’ve seen in a while though is the […]


Amazing Hawaii’an Petroglyphs

I’ve been living here on the north shore of Oahu now for like 17 years. As you can imagine, in that amount of time, I’ve seen a lot of cool unique stuff here, especially with the north shore being such a naturally beautiful place. We get a lot of really big surf here in the […]


2013 north shore winter season is under way

It’s been a funky old week with a lot of speculation about wave heights which have mainly not be panning out so much, but the ocean swell has steadily risen throughout the week. I observed Jamie Sterling and one of his friends; Katie Weeks stand up paddle surfing respectable sized Waimea. OK, so it’s not […]


The Lost Beach

It’s been the strangest surf season so far. All the storms that usually spin off the east coast of Japan and up north, before landing here in Hawaii, have all been going west into asia. Meanwhile, despite the lack of ocean energy, the beach between Rocky Point and Sunset beach has largely disappeared. I’ve lived […]


Polo on the north shore

North shore surfer; Jamie Sterling is a fully fledged big wave surf legend, but not so many people know about his other sporting passion, which is polo. Apparently Jamie has been pursuing this other interest for several years up at Dillingham ranch, located near the air-field on the west end of the north shore. Jamie […]


“Blue Crash”


Calm conditions deliver great surf-art opportunities.

Most folks who know my photography, often know how much I’ve always pursued and photographed waves. Sometimes, it’s not even the waves at all that I shoot, but maybe the foam that was left behind or a random bit of water leaping over the edge of the beach. Perhaps a shell buried in the sand. […]


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 […]


One in a million moment

It was October the 13th in 2004 and I had just rocked up to the beach to see if I could get some decent surf shots against the setting sun at at Rocky point. There I was on the beach looking at this full on solar eclipse and then I noticed Flynn Novak out there […]


Some pictures from this morning, on the north shore

Folks, it’s been very, very quiet for surfing the north shore lately. Really quiet, not to mention that the past couple of weeks have produced some rainy and windy weather as well. So when I woke this morning and could see that everything was settled down, with hardly any wind about, that was enough to […]


Hawaii’an sunset of the day – The Green Flash

Green Flash and Bird Pile

This Hawaiian sunset is of the much talked about Green Flash. Many people when visiting Hawaii especially learn about the green flash only for the first time when they visit. I’m not sure why this is, because I’ve seen them just about everywhere I’ve been. Maybe it’s easier for some folks to see them, than […]


Swell is on the way up

Pancho Sullivan taking it to the air this morning.

Lane was out the door while it was till dark this morning because the bouy readings had been up all night. I followed soon after, chasing some sunrise gold. I rocked up to Ehukai beach park, to scope out Pipeline and it was a virtual lake with just the one surfer sitting out there ever […]


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 […]


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 […]


Kam’ Highway gets all golden

Lane and her V-Dub

I was working in my home office late this afternoon and realised that I’d almost missed the sunset and I really want to try to keep this run of sunsets happening, so I jumped in my car and was driving along Kam Hwyy when I saw the golden light already taking over the place and […]

This is the 4th day in a row that I’ve been photographing Hawaiian sunsets and I expect to keep doing this each day for the forseeable future. Todays Hawaiian sunset comes from Turtle Bay, on the north shore of Oahu. I didn’t post the last 3 sunsets here on my site, so I’m presenting them […]


Wave of the day – “liquid energy”

Print name - "Liquid energy"

Folks today’s wave of the day is a rare view of an ocean wave from both above the water line and below the waterline at the same time. I particularly love the bubbles floating to the surface. Gives it a nice art look. Enjoy!


Flynn rips the bags out of Rockies while wearing a Davey Tee :)

I gave Flynn Novak a couple of The Davey Visions Tees from Welshy over in England. Flynn went straight out to Rocky Point and ripped the place apart with an inspired display of high tech surfing. If my T-shirts really could make people surf like this, I’d sell a million of ’em Here’s a handful […]


First swell of the season lights up the north shore

Sean Moody carvin' it

Folks, it’s been a long wait between swells up here on the north shore, but finally, one arrived today. Conditions were largely overcast and howling winds in between rain squalls, so it wasn’t that great, but at least the sun stayed out most of this afternoon. Here’s a some images of Flynn Novak, Sean Moody […]
