Welcome


Thank you for checking out my Action Sports Photography.


Rescues - Take time and always adds considerable risk. It can also kill a photo shoot. Donations are gladly accepted.


Selling  - There are two ways to buy.


1) SmugMug's shopping cart - Hover over an image and the Shopping cart BUY button appears. Use the buy button to enter the Store for items like Metal, Acrylic and Canvas prints to coffee cups, puzzles and playing cards. SINGLE digital downloads are also available.


*Is it wall worthy? If so Please get your prints directly from me. Prints are super important for my business and together i can walk you through items not offered online. Plus we will save on middle man fees. 


2) Private shoots and Digital Packages. -  A La Carte / Summer Wind Passports -  At the top of my Menu click on "Digital Packages and Passports" to get started on planning your photo shoot.


*Bulk digital packages are not available in SmugMug's shopping cart.


My Summer Wind Photo service works like this.


From a Zodiac boat or from land i'll gladly photograph you for 1-2 days while you check out my service and decide. 


My service takes an incredible amount of time, effort and expense to produce and to continued being photographed a decision must be made to make an annual purchase or buy a Summer Wind Passport. Those 1-2 days of sample photos will be included with your Passport.


Members receive all of their digital images for the time they are here. Passport Member photos are tagged to automatically load into your personal gallery once the days shoot is uploaded.


Shoppers - Does that photo always seem the same? The biggest reason is shoppers usually do the same thing every time. Passport members get the sickest of all shots because they are taught where to be and I set them up for the best angles and backgrounds.


Should I recognize you as a person who hangs out and never buys please accept my wave and know you won't be photographed as I just cannot afford the costs.


The best time to sign up is BEFORE you arrive or right away when you get here to begin receiving notifications about the weather, where I'll be for the day, and how to get a great shot from the start of your visit.


On the water look for the Grey Zodiac Boat with iwasphotographed on the sides. Then wave your hand to get my attention, fix yer hair, then yer britches, and cruise by and be photographed. Don't forget to smile.


If all goes well photos are usually posted within 24-48 hours. I often catch up on Monday-Tuesdays if I get buried.


Windsurfers - come on now, don't be shy and hide behind your sail. For some of you it's been years with folks looking around their sail as they pass by upwind. Be in the shot and try downwind of the boat.


Water SAFETY !


Kiters - Up Wind Safety.


Please, please, PLEASE, no upwind jumping where you may land within 1-2 kite line distance of the boat. Landings do and can go badly. My boat was lined and damaged by a jumper with me inside his kite lines. The kite itself just missed me by 2 feet and sliced a grab handle off my boat. Luckily Nobody was near my bow in the way of my escape.


Catching an edge happens frequently regardless of ability. 


Flying kites over head. (Boats, SUP, Surf-Ski's, others)


• Please keep from flying lines and kites over my head. Some out there have been flying the middle of their lines of their kite 6-10 feet over my head.... My bad will not cover it when it goes bad. I have been told that.

• Kiting etiquette and schools are clear about flying a kite over another object, especially over a persons head.


STAY Away from my bow and sudden Wave Driven Boat Acceleration 


In rough conditions Waves will unexpectedly push my boat forward and onto a plane. As the slower craft I  cannot go into reverse while being pushed by 4' - 12'  waves. The faster more maneuverable craft for the conditions must bare off.


Seriously, I must have an escape path forward from waves behind me. Please don't be that faster more maneuverable craft for the conditions that forces me to turn beam to conditions and gets rolled.


It's also too close for my Zoom Lens. 2 kite lines is perfect.
