@r.barbee Sick shot💯

2018 in a very abbreviated slideshow. 
Growth, pain, exploration, discovery, happiness, sadness, lessons learned, laughs, friends, travel, and being home. Learning to spend more time with myself to be better for others. These photos are a very brief collection of images that don’t even begin to sum up what this year has meant to me. I’m so grateful for my family, friends, clients I’ve had the fortune to work with and everyone who has supported my career thus far. With so many people looking forward I want to take a minute to look back at this year, finish it strong and move into 2019 with everything we’ve learned along the way.

This morning’s commute had a few more people than usual thanks to a series of long interval swells with clean conditions. San Diego...December 18, 2018.

@r.barbee Rad shot 💯

Tonight is the premier of the Momentum Generation documentary film on @hbo ! I was fortunate enough to be asked to come to Hawaii to document the only shoot day where everyone was in one place together. There we made the poster image as well as a series of portraits and BTS snapshots of the Zimbalist brothers at work. If you’re looking for a high action surf film, this isn’t the one. If you want to dive in and connect with a band of brothers of more than 30 years than tune in and be sure to check it out tonight!! Congrats to all involved!!

I’m pretty sure there has never been a World Champion who has smiled so much in not only being one of the most competitive surfers on tour, but also has the most fun!  Now multiply that by 7 and you have @stephaniegilmore, the current World Champion and hands down one of the happiest surfers I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing the lineup with. She dances on water and through life, one step at a time, one song at a time, one wave at a time. Her ability to be fierce with a jersey on then smile through the other 23 hours and 25 minutes of the day might be the reason she’s so lethal during a heat. 
Steph said it best during our Proximity project when she said: “When I’m in a contest, I feel like it all happens so quickly that I don’t even think or feel anything except the burn in my muscles. When I free surf, I’m pretty cruisey. I will definitely highline a section rather than attack it. I’m probably too relaxed. 
But the contest format pushes me into this assertive place, which feels really good. I get a kick out of watching myself perform well in heats and replaying those heats on the monitors. That sounds pretty arrogant, doesn’t it?” Humble yet lethal!! Purchase a Limited Edition Proximity book before December 22 to be entered to win a @firewiresurfboards. More information in my bio!

@taylorsteele Exactly! @toddglaser

We’re (Mom and I) so excited to be shipping out our Limited Edition Proximity books and even more stoked to know that each book bought between now and the 22nd of December has a chance to win the newest model of @firewiresurfboards called the Seaside!! Seaside Reef is where I shot my first roll of film and is still one of my favorite places to make photos and surf. I never would have guessed watching Seaside and Beyond and Momentum while in middle school would leave to traveling around the world and making images of some of the waves I dreamt of going to. Some of them in this book we didn’t even know existed back then!! The board comes out next week, but we got a couple of samples to ride to make sure they were @lottrolls approved. Looking forward to having our project being a part of anyone’s book collection or wrapped as a gift for the holidays and who knows. Someone is going to win the board featured here too! The link is in my bio to order and please email me if you’d like a customized signature on the books too. Thanks again for everyone who has supported our project and especially all of the surfers in the film who dedicated their time and believed in our idea! A very special thank you to Luke and the team at @studioparadisenyc who was side by side with me designing the look, layout and feel of the book!!

I’m super excited to release 100 Limited Edition Proximity books and announce that every book purchased between now and Dec. 22 comes with the chance to win a new @firewiresurfboards! Making a book has always been a dream of mine, and the limited edition comes with a few extra details. The 288 page color hardcover book comes with a Hard Slip Case and is hand numbered and signed. Each edition also comes with two different 5 x 7 numbered and signed prints that match the box-set edition of the book as well. Since the holidays are coming up, I figured this was finally a good time to unbox these bad boys. If you’re looking to have one customized, just send me a message and I’d be happy to do so. Big thanks to everyone who gave their support and time on this project.

@benthouard 👏

@walteriooss @toddglaser you did it!! Great.

Sometimes I wish we would shoot an entire trip with one camera and one lens. It would make traveling so much lighter not to mention it would make the editing process so much easier too. If you want something tight, move forward, want to show everything..step back. Using the legs as a zoom rather than a heavy backpack full of gear to slow you down. With Surfing we have to be ready to shoot everything from a wide angle tube shot to a surf break that is really far out. Maybe it’s laziness, or just being over prepared at times. On this trip of Proximity I brought a Leica M6 with a 35mm lens and only tri-x film. It never left my neck unless we were shooting from the water. These images are literally snapshots made while not using my digital camera. I love the consistency of tone, aesthetic, and feel. One day I’ll have the courage to work within the limitations of a one camera, one lens system but for now, this is a pretty good option to have. I’d love to hear what your favorite camera is...currently it’s the Fujix100f for me for everyday snapshots.
