Recently we were called upon to create impelling lifestyle images with a surf style in mind. Here are a couple.
A private client hired us to cover a local hockey game with her nephew. These little guys ripped around the ice! Here are a couple from the hundreds we delivered to them!
Recently I shot Keenan and Noah Flegel, world champs in their respective sports of wake boarding and wake surfing! They both got new sponsors, Noah with Hyperlite wake boards and Nautique Boats and Keenan with a new board! Here a few of the many shots that were taken!
Here are a few places my images appeared recently. On ESPN, Surfline.com, Canadian Press Agency, and recently a cover for the Atlantic Current magazine.
We got our 4th cover for The Atlantic Current Magazine, more than any other publication I have worked with! It was about my recent trip to Indonesia on traveling there to surf. We also shot the welcome to summer image campaign. Here are some tear sheets from the June/July 2013 issue. The summer image campaign were shot in Deerfield Beach, Florida
I was fortunate to be assigned to shoot the cover Feb/Mar 2013 issue of the Atlantic Current Magazine, which will be my third cover in a row with them.
Below are a handful of other images and assignments that were ran in the latest issue including FAU baseball, paddleboarding and an article on local surfer Codi Monroy!
Apparently I like hues!

Espn recently did an interview / portfolio review on my last year of shooting surfing around the world. Here are some screen shots from the article.
I often shoot the duo world champion Flegel brothers flying through the air behind a boat but this time, I shot the entire family for the xmas card portrait. Here are some outtakes! 2 boats, 2 drivers, an assistant, 2 lights and four pretty awesome family members shot in Deerfield Beach, Florida

With Tropical Storm Issac nearly on top of us, it was a struggle to get shots but we pushed on, traveled and made a few happen. Here are a couple that got published.
As I continue to work with providing marketing images for the Salt Life brand they are starting to use the photos throughout the stores, media and merchandise. Here are a couple of Cappy on an ad and their home page of their website.
As I continue to work with the Super brothers of Keenan and Noah Flegel while they dominate their sports, they never cease to amaze me. Here are some of Keenan the weekend before winning the 2012 World Title.
Recently I spent the day shooting the U.S. Waterski Championships for SportsPix. All the images go to potential clients, but here is an example.
Andy Mapple 6 time World Champion.
I was asked to cover 8 guys on a surfing trip of their lives aboard the Indies Trader 3 throughout the Mentawai Islands over the course of 12 days. Adventure is not even the word. Chasing waves with the best boats and technology available….. in the best place in the world is an experience I wanted to share. So I did, everyday on my blog partnership with www.Slavetothewave.com! I had a series of blogs where I wrote and posted photos of everyday and the people, waves and experiences we encountered. You can see them all here www.slavetothewave.com/ben-hicks/
Here are some of my favorite images from the trip.
