Surf Photographer Clark Little on Staring Down Shorebreak to Get the Perfect Shot – The Inertia

July 17, 2016 - Comment

Getting tossed around by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it's all in a good day's work. But the Waimea addict didn't grow up snapping shots with his father's camera like so many

Getting tossed around by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it's all in a good day's work. But the Waimea addict didn't grow up snapping shots with his father's camera like so many photographers do. He instead set out to capture his longtime stomping grounds when his wife came home with a framed photograph of Waimea shorebreak, an image he figured he would be able to easily replicate. Having never owned a camera, he threw a cheap "waterproof" casing over a cheaper point-and-shoot and headed out to the beach. Since that first attempt, Clark has not only emulated his wife's purchased wall art, but — with a gallery in Haleiwa and international recognition — has become a heavily respected fixture of wave photography.

Special thanks to Tom Servais and Clark Little archives for the gorgeous imagery and Freddy Booth and Peter King for the in-water videos. Check out Clark's new, 160-page coffee table book, Shorebreak, to see more of his work.

+TFO What’s wrong with you? Nobody wants to go to a good video like this on
YouTube and see people posting negative and immature comments like that.
Take into consideration of what you’re saying k? Good

Arnas G says:

Dear Klark… nice work there pal👍i admire what you do, but i guess you’ve
been asked a million times over… what camera did you use to take these
shots?

richard martin says:

instead of nearly drowning for every shot why not buy a small oxygen tank
to use in emergencys?

Ryan Bibb says:

+Ryan Bibb Might be wallpaper for El Capitan I think actually.
