Under the Wave

Shot outside of Tokyo on the island of Niijima. Clark flew in on a small prop plane, shot for two hours, and caught the next flight out to attend an event that evening in Yokohama.

Sand Sculpture

Little positioned himself right in front of a wave about to break on the sand to get this shot.

Last Blast

Clark got down and clicked the shutter as this wave heaved over him and created a cave. A few seconds later, after a fairly good beating, he was washed up the beach and covered in sand.

Tahiti

Shot in the morning on the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia at the famous surf spot, Teahupoo. This was from a trip Clark took with Apple for the ad campaign to launch the Mac Retina Displays.

Maui No Ka Oi

Maui No Ka Oi is a commonly used Hawaiian phrase and translates to "Maui is the Best." I have shot the waves on Maui on a few occasions and am always blown away by the water clarity, clear skies, white sand, and perfect lighting found on that island. This was shot at Makena Beach (Big Beach) on the South Shore. The resulting colors and reflections create unique compositions.
