Inspired by Instagram’s Throwback Thursday trend, here is one from the SDP archives. The other day I started flipping through a stack of old magazines from a friend and opened right up to this quintessential Homer surf scene. It made for a fun surprise! Here Mike McCune surfs Alaska for Outside Television in a photo licensed by Aurora Photos, one of our stock agents. From Outside Magazine, February 2012.
This winter has seen Scott on the snow almost more than in the water, thanks to a relatively slow surf season.
No worries, the mountains are a short drive away and there are plenty of friends in them.
We’ve had what seems like a lot of German attention lately, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated it!
Early this winter we were visited by filmmaker Sabrina Hermsen and her crew from ZDF (the German equivalent of PBS, we understand). We had a lot of fun showing them around and managed to get some surf when by all standards there really wasn’t any.
This German TV episode features us and Surf Alaska. Our appearance begins at 5:47.
In this longer episode Mike McCune of Ocean Swell Ventures and the M/V Milo are featured as well, although the surf is noticeably missing. We’re only sorry they didn’t include the post session feast, standard fare on the Milo, that we shared with them. Check it out, starting at 6:49.
Oh yeah, we also wish we knew what they are saying about us! Did you hear anyone say ‘der spinnt’ (he’s nuts!)?
This fall we were also showing up in German print:
On a more traditional front, Scott’s ever popular aerial bore tide surf shot was featured as a double page spread in a German magazine, Fit for Fun.
And another one that we really wish we could read: a super-cool looking book about Stand-Up Paddling published several SDP photos, including one of Scott surfing (taken by yours truly!).
Yes, this means that Scott is surfing in a book that has Laird Hamilton on the cover.
If you look at the author credit on this post you’ll see that it’s written by Stephanie Dickerson. This is a great beginning to a year of growth. My wife of nearly three years is taking a more formal position in Scott Dickerson Photography and I couldn’t be happier. She’s had a few roles in the business before now ranging from model to consultant but I am, we are, very excited about taking it to the next level. One thing you’ll notice right away is a bit more life here on the blog. So without further ado, take it away Stephanie!
Today is a warm day with a sense of spring and it seems appropriate we are about to have another opportunity to start the year afresh with Chinese New Year. While the Year of the Snake, the water snake, does seem auspicious, here at SDP (Scott Dickerson Photography) our word of the year will be growth. Yes, words of the year may be a bit passe by now, but we tend to be on our own time schedule. It is our goal to grow in all we do, and mostly in the enjoyment and effectiveness of what we already do.
Which is make great photos and share them all over the world.
I’d like also, to take this opportunity to introduce myself as a new full-time member of SDP, and the most obvious evidence that our growth is already underway. I hope that this will afford us more opportunity to share with you all of the amazing things that we are up to.
What better way to welcome myself than to share with you a wonderful spread in SUP International, thanks to Naish, with my by-line (and […]
I’ve been out on more than a couple surf trips this fall on the m/v Milo with Ocean Swell Ventures. On a recent trip I shot a little video between photos and today I put together a very very short edit to start learning my way around some new video editing software. Check out the video below.
