Waves of New Jersey (Gallery)

These are some of my favorite shots of the surf in NJ that I’ve taken over the years. I love capturing the feel of an empty, perfect wave – as a surfer, these photos get me going and make me want to paddle out! Despite the way it looks, I also love the dark “chocolate brown” color of the water in some of these shots – it really gives it that ominous, heavy feel. I have great memories of each of these sessions and I’m hoping we have more of this coming our way this spring!

Mountain Mission 2018: Mountain Creek Pow Day

What a spring here in the east – it really has been a Miracle March. This was probably the most snow I’ve ever seen at Mountain Creek NJ (my home mountain) and I got to ride some lines I’ve never even looked at before! There was that much snow! We had so many storms I totally forget what they called this one, but I’ll call it pretty damn epic. Freshies on every run! Check out the edit.

Costa Rica 2014 (Gallery)

Costa Rica is a beautiful place – the waves are perfect, the weather is nice (unless it’s the rainy season), and the people are friendly. Plus, I love the fact that there are so many different waves, all within a short drive – you got beach breaks, point breaks, and reef breaks all around. All you really need to access all this is a 4×4 vehicle capable of taking you down some bumpy dirt roads through the jungle. Tamarindo is a great base camp for these types of missions since there are great spots all around it.

These photos are out of the archive from a trip to Costa in 2014. It was an epic first taste of what the country has to offer, and I’ll definitely be going there on a surf trip again soon. I didn’t get any surf photos on this trip, but we didn’t have anyone to shoot while we were all out in the water! Either way, check out the photos below for a little taste of the beauty this country has to offer.

 

Mountain Mission 2018: February Teaser

February was one for the books! What an epic month – got to travel around to Whiteface NY, Revelstoke BC, Banff AB, and many more sick spots! It was truly a great month to be snowboarding, and I collected quite a few clips along the way. This is just a quick teaser to give you a taste of what went down – full edits are on the way and dropping soon so stay tuned!

Abandoned (Gallery)

More digging has been done! This time into one of my favorite areas of photography – abandoned buildings. There’s just something strangely beautiful about a place that has been left behind and forgotten. In my experience,  places take on a whole new meaning once they’re abandoned and they tend to get pretty surreal. Below are a few images where I tried to capture the surreal aspects of these places. Cheers!

California 2012 (Gallery)

So there’s a ton of old stuff in the archives that I’ve never posted – I’m slowly starting to go through it and I’ll be posting more soon. This gallery is from a trip to California back in 2012. It was an epic adventure down the PCH from Yosemite to San Francisco then down to LA. Here’s a bunch of images from along the way.

Mountain Mission 2018: Hunter Mtn. Pow Day

So Hunter Mountain NY reported 28″ of fresh snow thanks to Winter Storm Riley. Unfortunately, this crazy dump also killed the power to the entire Hunter area – so I was forced to hike it to get the goods. The hike was epic and totally worth it. During my run down, ski patrol stopped next to me and told me that they just got power back and the lifts were going to spin in a few minutes – what a reward for that hike. Check out the video!
