A lot of my work day is filled with very un-sexy, non-photography chores. One of which is creating and maintaining a backup plan.
My family and I just spent a week in Maui. Since it was a family vacation I fought off the idea of booking a shoot for as long as I could but eventually I caved. There was no way I was going to Hawaii and not shooting in the water.
I consider myself an early blogger. Even before I left the investment banking business (circa 2001-2002) I had a blog.
As I look back at 2015 it will be defined as the year I spent in the water. Having ponied up for a professional grade camera housing for my DSLR it opened up the possibilities of what had been fun experiments to full-fledged commercial shoots.
This summer was epic. Thanks to global warming and El Niño we had an amazing summer with 70° water temps for five months. This shoot with Courtney was my last ocean shoot for the season.
Over the past two years I have been able to combine my love of the ocean with my photography. Recently the question was posed to me about what I love outside of photography. This past week it dawned on me that the answer is the ocean.
