Every time I get in the water there’s a risk that my housing can flood and cause irreparable damage to my camera.
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.
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.
As with any new piece of equipment I like to spend enough time using it so that when it comes time for a commercial job I am familiar with the issues and know how to overcome them.
This past summer I rekindled my love of the ocean. Shortly after I moved to LA from Texas I learned to surf.
