The last couple of days we have been experiencing some really spectacular sunsets on the west coast. A sign that winter is near and I'm definitely looking forward to it. Take a look at the gallery below to see the drama unfold in the sky...
Lately I have been trying to find inspiration from smaller waves since there hasn’t been all that much size in the water around here. Although it’s certainly nothing to write home about, there have been some fun little waves at Rincon the past couple of days. Hopefully this winter will start to kick into gear and some good west swell will come our way, until then don’t forget about all the little things…
All my life I have pulled inspiration from the ocean, its mesmerizing beauty has held me captive for as long as I can remember. It has been this obsession that fuels my desire to create. As an artist I draw influence from the contrasting nature of the sea, calm and beautiful or ugly and powerful the ocean has many different faces. It is through my photography that I aim to evoke similar emotion within the viewer as I have found in my own life through the water.
During the In-Water Photography course last semester Ralph Clevenger took our class on a 5-day boat trip to dive at Catalina Island. This was easily the best class I have taken so far at Brooks Institute, although my current semester is shaping up to be all-time. Heres a few shots of the underwater landscape found just off shore at Catalina. Max and I explored the underwater kelp forests top to bottom for the better part of a week. Underwater caves, sharks and sea lions were all experienced first hand during our dives out on Catalina, which is one of the most stunning underwater worlds I've ever had the opportunity to see.
