Recently we were called upon to create impelling lifestyle images with a surf style in mind. Here are a couple.
Here are some images we shot from our favorite Nature Center, Gumbo Limbo!
We have collaborated with Gumbo Limbo Nature center in Boca Raton to provide them images anytime they need them as a donation of our services. Here are some new ones we took recently with the new tank feature.
Our favorite nature non profit Gumbo Limbo Nature asked us to photograph some images inside their new tanks. After taking the plunge inside we felt right at home with all the fish surrounding the cameras! Here are a few!

Recently the Atlantic Current contacted us to shoot another cover being my 5th for the magazine. Here are some outtakes from the shoot!
For the second year in a row I was asked to document a trip through the Mentawai Islands of Indonesia of the coast of Sumatra for a group of surfers from around the world. We ventured out on a 12 day trip on the Indies Trader 3 boat with legendary captain Martin Daly and his experienced crew. We scored perfect pumping waves the entire trip. We shot half the time in the water and half out in the boats and skis. Below are some of my favorite images of the trip!
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.

Here are some recent Landscape shots while on a recent visit to Michigan
Lately Stephanie has been super busy shooting, writing orders, previewing sessions, and you name it. When I get a chance I help her out on the shoots and occasionally fire some frames. Here are a couple from a shoot while the kids were waiting there turn.
This weekend we were commissioned to shoot a private party and 16 girls for underwater portrait shots. We shot them in a public pool with less than 5 mins per kid, which is nothing. Thanks to Missy for coming in to help as well.
