Over the last couple years I’ve been occasionally experimenting shooting aerials with a Tilt-shift lens. The purpose has been to play with the depth of field (selective focus or blurred areas)which is often disregarded in aerial photography due to the distance between the camera and subject making it very difficult to achieve with normal lenses.

In my last post – see it here – I told a story about a Alaskan surfing photoshoot with the ‘Brothers on the Run’ crew. I left off halfway through the day just before heading to the beach to shoot from a different angle. Below are a few select images.
I had an incredible spring filled with surf trips around the wild coastline of Alaska. One such trip involved a renegade group of snowboarders and a pro surfer. The Brothers on the Run is a webisode series sponsored by redbull and youtube:
“BOTR” documents the trip of a lifetime: Alaska to southern Chile, by rig, on the longest navigable road in the world — 15,000 miles minimum. They started in Anchorage on April 1 and expect to reach Chile by August, shooting and shredding the whole way down. The series will feature cameos by other pros, bros and guides.

In mid April the brothers and their crew, which at the time included Maui surfer Ian Walsh and snowboarder Travis Rice, joined us for an Alaskan surf adventure aboard the m/v Milo.
Living the dream back here in Alaska combining two of my passions – surfing the wilds of Alaska and photographing surfing (especially in the wilds of Alaska).
I’ve been enjoying back to back surf trips on the m/v Milo with a bunch of great folks joining us. We are motoring out of Resurrection Bay as I type for another week of exploring surf on the Alaskan coast. For this trip we’re joined by surfers from Nova Scotia, Hawaii, and California. When we aren’t surfing there is plenty of photo editing to catch up on!
After our little Helisurf adventure yesterday, I was able to join CPG for a day of photographing Heliskiing. What was looking to be a great day ended quickly after we found some incredibly unstable snow conditions. Our guide, Jeff Hoke, was digging a pit to analyze the snowpack while myself and a group of clients standing by in a safe spot. The conditions were known to be potentially dangerous, but we were still a bit surprised when this avalanche let go right below us. The slope was so easy that it started of slowly. I took one photo, turned around and rand a few steps up the ridge and then started shooting video.
