GOING OUTSIDE...





AS A PHOTOGRAPHER IT IS ALL WAYS GOOD WHEN YOU HAVE AN ASSIGNMENT TO DO...
BUT HAVING TO SHOOT A COVER SHOT FOR A MAGAZINE LIKE GO OUTSIDE , I DEFINITELY FELT SOME PRESSURE...
BUT BEING AN OUT DOOR PHOTOGRAPHER HELPED A LITTLE WHEN THEY ASKED FOR A SHOT DURING A SUNSET.
WE HIRED VANIA SIMONS AS OUR HAIR AND MAKE UP ARTIST AND JUST WAITED FOR THE RIGTH COLORS IN THE SKY...
I HAD NO PROBLEM WORKING WITH MAYA,HER SMILE WAS ALL WAYS THE SAME ON EVERY SINGLE SHOT...
I'M VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS OF THE PHOTO SHOOT AND HAPPY TO BE ABLE TO BE CONTRIBUTING AGAIN WITH A MAGAZINE WITH SUCH GOOD REPUTATION LIKE GO OUTSIDE .

BRUNO LEMOS NOMINATED FOR THE 2008 XXL BIGGEST WAVE ! ! !

SINCE BILLABONG STARTED THIS COMPETITION THE SURFING WORLD DEFINITELY CHANGED... WE 'VE BEEN SEEING SOME IMPRESSIVE IMAGES OF BIG WAVES.. AND EACH YEAR IT GETTING BETTER AND HARDER TO WIN ANY THING... I HAD THE CHANCE TO BE NOMINATED BEFORE WITH SOME VERY IMPRESSIVE IMAGES .. THIS YEAR I HAD THE CHANCE TO CAPTURE ONE OF THE BIGGEST WAVES EVER RIDDEN ON THE CALIFORNIA COAST .. IT WAS ON DEC 4TH AT "PESCADERO POINT "BY MONTE RAY BAY AREA ON A SURF SPOT KNOWN AS "GHOST TREES" ... ONE MONTH LATER PHOTOGRAPHER ROB BROWN WENT TO CORTES BANK AND GOT SOME SICK STILL PHOTOS...

NEW ADS



SELLING PHOTOS FOR AD CAMPAIGNS IS USUALLY WHERE THE MONEY IS ...
BUT IT IS NOT ALWAYS THAT YOU GET PICTURES THAT ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE ART DIRECTORS' STANDERS...
SO IT IS ALL WAYS GOOD TO SEE THOSE AD PRINTED IN THE MAGAZINES.
VIKING SURFBOARDS AND LOCAL MOTION ARE BOTH VERY GOOD CLIENTS OF MINE..
AND I HAD A LOT OF FUN WORKING WITH SEAN TUBBS AND FABIO NUNES THEY BOTH RIP HARD...

COVER SHOT ! ! !


YOU COULD BE THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE WORLD ...
BUT I'M SURE THAT WHEN EVER YOU GET A COVER SHOT YOU WILL BE STOKED...
BLACK WATER IS A VERY UNIQUE MAGAZINE , GRATE DESIGN AND THEY HAVE AN EXCELLENT PHOTO SELECTION..
I WAS REALLY HAPPY TO SEE ONE OF MY SHOTS IN THE COVER OF THE FEBRUARY ISSUE ...
SPECIALLY BECAUSE BUFFALO KEAULANA WAS THE SURFER THEY CHOOSE THERE IS A LOT OF HISTORY AND SURFING BEHIND THAT MAN.

SURFING STILL GOING OFF ON THE NORTH SHORE

HERE IS WHAT WE SURFERS SEE WHEN WE ARE SURFING
THIS IS WHAT THE REEF UNDER WATER LOOKS LIKE....

I'M STILL DOING A LOT OF SURFING RELATED WORK ...
THE WAVES ARE STILL GOING OFF , SO ALL I'M DOING IS TAKING SURF PHOTOS AND DOING SURF VIDEOS .
THE BANZAI BEACH IS THE BEST OPTIONS FOR CAPTURING IMAGES.
