Finally, time to release a few images from my favorite collections over my career. Let's start with Modern Surf #6, from my second Modern Surf Collection.

When I look at my surf collection, especially my more recent work I feel that it allows myself or even the viewer to really focus in and see the connection between the surfer and the power of the ocean. Something with deeper meaning, that makes people look at a subject from a whole different perspective.

I started taking my first surf photos in June 2013. I was in Hawaii on Oahu with my buddy and a crew of really good surfers, a few pros and sponsored. At the time, I wasn't completely set on shooting surf at all. I came to shoot landscapes, the sea, stars, etc. That is what I focused on most during that time in my photography career. But we had a lot of time to kill during the days, and not everyone is a photographer. They chase swells like we chase storms. So as they surfed all day, I would kick back on the beach, enjoy some beers and watch them surf. This allowed a lot of time to fire off surf photos though. It was actually pretty enjoyable too. A nice break from what I normally shoot and a lot more relaxing. So I shot thousands of photos over that first trip. I had no idea what to do with them, and pretty much sat on them for six months. Until one day after finishing up some of my black and white architecture shots for my Modern Light series, I decided to try a similar technique on my surf photos. It was at that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
