I spent several days on the sea ice in the Magdalen Islands photographing harp seal mothers and pups. It took two days by boat to get to this location. This harp seal pup was backlit by a dramatic sunset.

Two of my favorite plants are in this photo, an almond tree and a sea grape. The shapes of the clouds, the sea breeze, and the movement and color of the water were simply divine.

Honolulu Awakens


Honolulu Awakens

I awoke and took an early morning stroll to the Ala Wai Canal from my hotel in Waikiki and saw the sunrise breaking through some of the clouds and casting a golden hour glow on the still canal waters. This is where I was born and raised and visiting...

Winter season on Kauai translates to large ocean swells and slightly cooler temperatures. When the first large swell passed through the islands I embarked on my inaugural wave hunting expedition. It's a tricky dance of timing, being patient, and...

I shot this from the most incredible spot on the planet. This was my second time hiking out here, and it was better than the first. The small group of friends I was with enjoyed experiencing this rainbow filled moment together.

While exploring off-the-beaten track on the Big Island, I stumbled upon this beautiful lagoon. It was situated just off the beach there was a thin channel that connected it to the open ocean. Sea turtles use this channel to go back and forth between...

I spent a few days last winter photographing the famed wild ponies of Assateague Island. On this day, I followed a group out into the swamp and watched through the reeds as these two spent some time napping. Upon waking this pony let out a deep yawn,...

It was a cold and clear winter night, and the northern lights, aurora borealis, danced on the sky just above the horizon. I took several hundred images as a time-lapse sequence, and made a stacked image of 150 of them using the software StarStax.
