Perspective is everything. Working with the @redbullairforce is always a high honor. This crew pushes the envelope like few others — literally! This is a set of images from various assignments with the team. As you can see in the last few images I get to shoot out of a lot of different aircraft when working with the team. The skydiving aerial shot was done with remote cameras. A lot of these were captured above the private airfield of legendary pilot @kirbychambliss. He is pictured in a few of these in his stunt plane as are @therealfelixbaumgartner alongside @jondevore @lukeaikins @miles_daisher @seanmaccormac @mikeswansons @chexmachine @amychmelecki — looking forward to working with the crew again down the road. #redbullairforce @redbull #skydiving

@kailightner hanging off Chain Reaction (5.12c) at Smith Rock State Park near Redmond, Oregon. This was shot last year as part of my @creativelive class on Advance Lighting techniques for @redbullphotography It was awesome to work with such a stellar athlete like Kai, who is deep in training for the 2020 Olympics. #smithrock #kailightner #rockclimbing #chainreaction @elinchrom_ltd #elinchrom #hisync

A high-resolution panorama of a cloudy arctic summer morning in Trollsfjord in the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway. The view on this morning was jaw-dropping as seen in these images. I have shared other versions of this scene before but never this large format panorama image. #norway #trollsfjord #lofoten #lofotenislands #panorama

Happy Holidays! Captured this image of @yusurf a few weeks ago at Peahi on a windy, messy day. He donned the Christmas cap for a few waves. Makes for a cool Christmas image. Thanks Yuri for going out with us on such a crazy windy day. May Peace and love reign supreme in 2019! #peahi #jaws #maui #bigwavesurfing #santaclaussurfing

This small gallery includes only a few from my latest blog post re-capping the year and discussing what I think are the best images from 2018.

Ghost Light. While waiting for the swell last week in Maui I had several days to explore remote parts of the island I hadn’t seen on previous trips. The roads on the north side of the island are super narrow and some of the curviest roads I have ever driven. The distances weren’t that far but the curvy roads took hours to navigate. I don’t get car sick but my stomach wasn’t loving the curvy roads. As can be seen here the black sand beach at the end of the road was pretty wild. Get up at 3 AM, drive for three hours, arrive just before sunrise in the dark and then get to work. The life of a photographer doesn’t include much sleep. #maui #ghost #hana

A surfer dropping in at Waimea Bay the day before the Eddie Aikau big wave surfing event in December 2009. On this day the waves weren’t quite big enough for the contest but they were pretty big nonetheless and hundreds of surfers went out. This image was captured late in the evening just after the sun had set. #waimeabay #eddieaikau #oahu #bigwavesurfing #hawaii
