Portraits with Keenan and Noah Flegel in South Florida.

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!


Team Polaroid Action Cam Watersports Team

Here are a bunch of images we created with the Team Polaroid Action Cam World Class Wake Athletes.  Polaroid recently introduced a new line of action sports compact cameras.  Capable of shooting 1080p HD video and high quality stills all in a compact cam capable of being mounting on nearly anything to capture all your action moments.  We shot wake boarders Mike Dowdy, Harley Clifford, Noah Flegel and Wake Surfers Keenan Flegel and Jaqualine Fort.  Dean Lavelle also did it all!

 


Cover shot for Atlantic Current Magazine – 2 in a row for 2012

The Atlantic Current magazine continues to grow as a prominent South Florida Sports and Lifestyle read.  I was stoked to get the first and now the second straight cover.  This time with Jr. World Champ Wakeboarder Noah Flegel.  Not an easy shot to achieve as I was being dragged about 2 feet behind him on a tube.  I also had a ton of other shots in the mag, here are some tearsheets.  Articles on Tanner Strohmenger, The Flegel Brothers and The ResolversI also created two of the ads in the magazine.


3rd Annual 10 FPS Photos 2012

Take a look at the 2012 edition of my 10 Frames Per Second (FPS) video which is a review of the last 12 months of shooting.  Check out more with my 3rd Annual Photo Exhibit at Island Water Sports on Friday January 4, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. where I will present my most memorable images and describe what it took to get each shot.  Win some cool stuff from Quiksilver and Electric while supporting the local Jr. Surfrider Foundation.


Extreme Family portraits with the Flegels!

 

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


2012 World Wakesurf Champ Keenan Flegal Portraits

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.

World Champ Flegel Brothers wake shoot

Brothers Keenan and Noah Flegel talent make my job easier everytime I shoot them.  Here is the latest shoot with the boys.  I worked with Keenan ( 2010 World Wakesurfing Champ ) a bit more with some new angles.  Getting up close I was towed on a surfboard next to Keenan as he performed.  Shooting with one hand and holding the rope with the other.  Noah’s shots are done by have him launch over my head while I am towed laying on my back on a tube.

Some Keenan’s shots were used on www.wakesurfers.net and also on his board sponsor Inland Surfers website.
