I recently made a quick edit of some of the more awesome wipeouts I got at Cloud 9 in the Philippines. I made a “normal” edit as well as a “clean” edit for all those who are not 18 or just need a good laugh. This is sort of a precursor to a piece I’m working on that will include a lot of amazing waves from the trip. Enjoy!
Here is one of my favorite photos of my latest trip. It is my new buddy Charlie watching me take a photo as a couple waves peel down the reef. It was dark enough that I hadn’t seen him standing there and was glad to have his green shirt add some color. I wound up giving him a candy bar for a “modeling” fee lol. I’ll put a picture of him stoking on the candy bar too.✌️
I was trying to upload a sped up version of my travel from San Francisco, California to Manila, Philippines but due to wifi and website constraints this photo will have to do for now. I left my house at 9:30am Friday the 19th and arrived in Manila 9:00am Sunday the 21st. There are certainly more effective routes but it is just the beginning of the journey to Cloud 9. I’ll continue to try updating this with travel content(apologies if I’m unable) and make a final project upon return.
I got to shoot in SD Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Here are a couple of shots I took.
Not many things get my attention like lightning. It intrigues me more than most things that occur on this planet and I enjoyed watching every minute of this storm in Puerto. I sat on the rooftop from dusk until 2am, talking aloud to all my favorite people that have passed on from this world. I guess I was just assuming I’m too insensitive to see them enjoying the show with me. Love and miss you guys🙏👆👼👼👼👼👼👼👼👼👼
I had a pleasant surprise tonight as I hopped out of the car and set up my first vineyard shot. An owl swooped overhead and landed on a telephone poll behind me. I got one shot of him while he followed me around “supervising” my shots. I figure he’s just a local owl-coholic who loves wine like a lot of people up here in Napa.
