Welcome


First, Thank you for checking out my Action Sports Photography service.


Rescues - Takes time and always adds considerable risk. It can also kill a photo shoot. Please make a donation.


Selling  - I have 2 ways to sell Digital copies and Prints.


1) BUY Button / SmugMug's shopping cart - From any image click on the buy button to enter the Store for items like metal and canvas prints, coffee cups, puzzles and playing cards or SINGLE digital copies.


*Please if you are going to print an image get it from me. It's super important i get that income. And do prints! Because 100 years from now they will be found and everyone will be grooving on them!


2) Bulk Digital Al La Carte / On-Demand Member -  The link below is provided from the main menu. **Bulk digital packages are not available in SmugMug's shopping cart**


My focus is on the Members.


The Summer On-Demand photo service works like this. Your Member photos are tagged to automatically load into your own personal gallery.


Members receive all of their digital images starting at, and for, the time they are here. Members receive discounts on Prints and Store items. ** this is not a season pass.


Sign up right away when you get here, then you will receive notifications about the weather, where I'll be for the day, and how to get a great shot from the start of your visit.


If you are new to my service please know I'll shoot you for 1-2 days while you check out the site and decide. Then a decision must be made by you to purchase or a decision by me to stop photographing you. Those 1-2 days of sample photos will be included with your Membership.


Please, do not **repeatedly ask me to take your photo and if it's good enough you will buy it. Be an annual buyer, make a donation, or be a Summer On-Demand Member and i'll gladly take your photos. This is a sign up anytime offer.


**This service takes an incredible amount of time, effort and expense to produce. Then there's the rescues. Should I recognize you as a person who hangs out and never buys. Please accept my wave and know you won't be photographed. I just cannot afford the costs.


And more importantly, shopping prevents customers from being photographed.


On the water look for the Grey Zodiac Boat with iwasphotographed on the sides.


Use the international sign for "i want to be photographed" and wave your hand to get my attention. Then fix yer hair, then yer britches, then cruise by and be photographed. Don't forget to smile.


Windsurfers - No need to be shy an hide behind your gear. Be in the shot and go downwind of the boat.


Kiters - Up Wind of the boat jumping.

Please no upwind jumping where you may land within 2 kite lines distance of the boat. My boat was lined and damaged by a jumper with me inside his kite lines. This happens frequently with most folks catching an edge.


So 2 kite lines for distance when passing up wind of a boat.



SAFETY -  PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM MY BOW!


1st. I must have an escape forward from waves behind me. Please don't be the reason i get rolled.


2nd. Those Waves will unexpectedly push my boat forward and onto a plane. Boats my size cannot go into reverse while being pushed by 4 + waves.


3rd. It's too close for my Zoom Lens. 1-2 kite lines is perfect.


4th. Do you really want to be #4 that falls and then a wave pushes the boat over you?


The marine sheriff witnessed one of those on a big day at Swell City. He though i was going to get rolled... twice. The jumper was an expert who is only out on the biggest of days. He jumps in front of me (same set), lands and spins out i have no where to go and it's a 2 headed monster behind me. Yes my boat passed over his rig. Fortunately i had started to raise my motor so nothing caught. Unfortunately my key fell out of the ignition. I got it started but still got pounded. We were both lucky.


As a rule 1 Kite line distance is close enough for the best shots and safety. Except kiter's passing Up Wind.


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