Recently I was asked to shoot a big weekend festival for my local church called BridgeFest. It was a long, but rewarding day, both spiritually and artistically. Despite the early hour of which it began, I found myself elated to be on the beach of Ocean Grove NJ, immersed in the warmth of the morning sunshine, and crisp salt air.
I have had many opportunities with my photography–varying from musicians, to famous athletes, and even families–this past year, and to say this was one of my favorite experiences as a photographer thus far, does not come lightly. But if there was ever a light that shown down from above, illuminating the path you should choose in this life, for me it was the rays of the sun glistening against the clear blue ocean tide. I look forward to plunging deeper into the sub culture, and though I haven’t surfed for many, many years.. I may even pick up a board again. Who knows..
Enjoy looking through the shots, as I truly enjoyed shooting them.
