When I received this email I was blown away by the beauty of the photographs.  For someone who has been tumbled in the waves and who loves her photography but in the past few years hasn’t really had the time to get out there and appreciate nature at this level; it was fabulous to see what others are doing.  To take a small thought, like ‘how can I get that piece of art for my wife’, to a full-blown career doing something that he loves … WOW! 

This story and others like it show how you too could take your dream, your inspiration, your hidden talents, and create the life you never thought you could have.

I have no idea where my father gets these emails, but ‘thanks for sharing Dad’ … these are incredible!  As your email says ‘Amazing photography!’

Take a look at this….it is absolutely beautiful!!!!

This guy stands in the water and waits until the last sec to snap his camera shutter
then takes a beating when the wave collapses over him.

Clark Little

Waimea Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two,
Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography on National Television.

It all started in 2007 when Clark ‘s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.
Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water,
and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power
of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out.

” Clark ‘s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only
be able to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark ‘s photos.

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot,
Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office
from land, to the inside of a barrel.

Since the recent stir of Clark ‘s work, his images have been run on the
Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature’s Best Photography,
Paris Match(France), La Vie ( France ), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine,
Surfer magazine, Surfer’s Journal
as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.

These incredible images of waves in the Hawaiian Islands were taken by Clark Little,
the number one photographer of surf.

He is dedicated to photographing the waves and has published a selection of his best!

Sand in surf

This shot captures sand from the ocean’s floor being swept up
by a monstrous wave and resembles a sandstorm.

Little calls it the Sand Monster.
There were clouds of sand ten feet high and I’m standing there.
I’m holding on to my camera and my trigger as long as I can.
Then I have to jump into the cloud of sand to try to get out of danger’s way.

His fans pay as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos.

This shot is his favourite.
With a high shutter speed he caught the brilliant fanned effect of two waves  intersecting each other and
throwing out this beautiful fan of water.

Than to live my life as if there isn’t,
and die to find out there is.”
