A rare view of Skaftafellsjökull tongue as it makes it way towards the Atlantic. Shot flying just above Iceland’s highest peak Hvannadalshnúkur which sits only 6,900ft above sea level.

Sad to see you go Chris. You were always kind to me early in my career. Quick to pick up the phone if the surf looked huge and the conditions were right. You had a knack for making the right call. Never forgot a face, and probably had the b

Faces are so powerful. They have a way to really jog your memory and put you right back behind the lens of that exact moment. Near the backwaters of Kerala India we followed a rivermouth to the sea in search of a near mythical wave. It ende

In cold water everything seems to slow down a little bit. Maybe because your body feels like it’s moving through molasses in the thick wetsuit or it could be the heavy aspect of cold water. Honestly It’s hard to envision why peopl

Caught in the act 📷 
I’ll often take advantage of any vantage point I possibly can to make a photo a little more interesting. Often that means just elevating or lowering myself by just a couple feet to change my perspective

Working on a book can be a glacial process ( no pun intended :) .. at times it’s near impossible to see the movement until the end. Over the last 6 years I’ve been shooting, compiling & editing down my images to create a portfolio

Some places stay with you a bit longer than others. Late at night when my mind races & I can’t sleep (most nights) I’m drawn back to certain memories & feelings. This sunset in Mallorca a few months ago was hard to forget... right
