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.
It seems like every week we read about new examples of botched photoshop work.
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.
