‘Cane Season | 6.28.11


The last big swell that rolled through was a couple weeks ago – and I have been scouring through my HD for the rest of the footage from that weekend. These were some of the better shots & clips that the search produced. I’m also currently working on some new sticker & tshirt designs as well so keep an eye for those and STAY TUNED!


Sunset | 6-26-11 – The Birds | 6-27-11

Got lazy and didn’t use my tripod tonight, also didn’t have an SD card with me so I had to borrow a 1gig which equates to 36 photos in RAW+JPEG format. With everything being digital lately and technology coming along so quickly it’s easy to forget how much more difficult it was to get a great shot on film cameras.

All In A Days Work | June 25, 2011

Today was awesome — I got to poach the new Hampton bowl with the boys, shoot Paul O absolutely tearing the thing to pieces and then shoot Stevie O down south in head high surf. And all after I got outta work, take a second and check out Andy’s photography from out west down below this post. We’re really stoked to see more work from him, STAY TUNED!


6.25.11

Decided to check out Glacier National Park on my trek out west. Going-To-The-Sun road is still closed due to the massive amount of snow they received this year, plowing is still in progress. Sitting in Missoula now stealing some internet for this post. These are two of the shots I got in the park.

Pretty hard to follow Lucas’s act from yesterday…few shots from the park with my 35mm.

Here’s a few photos from Newburyport, MA the other day – super fun and some sunshine never hurts. This was my first try with some of the sequencing – which is a work in progress.



Summer Fly | 6-16-11

Footage from the other morning, I will mention Andrew caught another 8 striper this AM on a fly rod.

…And a quick reminder that Summer is here.
Also, Happy Fathers day to all the amazing Dads out there. Thanks for everything.


STRIPERS!

Stripers are in thick, got an early start this morning with Andrew Whitney – by 7:30am he had snapped his rod and caught 7 fish total. More to come….


Flashback | August 30, 2010

As we continue to look back at last year’s hurricane season here’s a few from Mr. Lockwood and friends early in the season.

Just another gloomy day at the Salisbury Park.

We have some strong point breaks here in NH.

Usually, when a beer distribution plant is closed down, it’s a sad day. Not so for skaters in Nashua – the old Budweiser distribution warehouse has recently been renovated and turned into a 25,000 square foot indoor park. This place has everything from a “kids” section to some Danny Way style drops. Having seen the other skate parks around the area – it was refreshing to see a professional indoor setup for everyone – for once, that wasn’t made entirely of sand piles and “QuikCrete.” It’s a couple bucks to skate and the cost is well worth it. That same weekend back on the Seacoast, I met up with Ryan and Andrew down at the Salisbury park for a mellow session after work. A couple other kids came out and just dismantled this little park, and quite honestly showed the rest of us up with ease. Here is a taste of what The Granite Skate has to offer.

This week we’ll be posting photos of the 2010 hurricane season, hopefully this season is as potent as the last. This day was super overcast but I got to shoot my favorite surf spots. At this point last year most people were searching for uncrowded spots because it was such a busy season. The second photo is, for the most part, an overflow spot – I only know a few guys who surf this place regularly, one is a local shop owner – the other moved to CA.

THIS WEEK: We will be posting some photos from last hurricane season all week….it’s going to be one hell of a long summer so hopefully this helps with the anxiety of flat spells (maybe not). This collection is from pretty deep in the hard drive — from September 21, 2010 – all photos that I had not edited or seen since last year.


Friday Night

Took a few shots this evening with the new lens, still getting used to it…..not an ideal landscape lens but I was curious how it would perform during the sunset.


NEW: Nikkor 35mm 1.8G

Went out and bought the new Nikkor 35mm 1.8G lens, pretty cool having such low light capabilities but it’s definitely different using a prime lens (no zoom). I’ll report back with some thoughts later on.
Below is my first experience with the new lens:

Rock The Boat | June 8, 2011

We had an excellent journey out to sea yesterday on Bob’s sea ship “Rock The Boat” named after it’s previous owner Rocky who sold Bob the boat. It didn’t turn out to be as hot as predicted but we still had a blast – caught a few mackerel and a nice buzz. Joined by Adam and his new puppy Sebastian, we went south from Rye to the ledge off of Costello’s and threw on the jig – literally seconds after dropping it into the water the thing was full of fish. Bob went ahead and tried using the macky for the rest of the afternoon but nothing bit. It’s surprising how few lobster traps are in the water this time of year, there were spots where you couldn’t even see a trap…a few weeks from now we won’t be able to make a trip without hitting a few.
In other news: Lucas picked up a new drylin slider, it’s incredibly smooth and secures to the top of his tripod. It’s going to produce some awesome stuff but now I feel like I have to buy something…leaning towards the Nikkor 35mm 1.8G.

Just a reminder of how awesome Bolton is…

I spent a little too much time in the sun today, still some fun leftover waves coming through.
