Adam Small  ⛺️ AP @ Marmot 🌎 San Diego ✈️ Petaluma 📥 DM to Shoot/Collab

#capturededication @nick_blanco and I tried several times to get this photo. We would stand on top of the cliff at low tide and watch the waves as they rolled in, sometimes a large set of waves would come in and completely drench the concrete. I took repeated trips checking the spot till finally we caught a good break and climbed down the cliff. We did our best to clean and dry the concrete. I searched for a spot on the precarious wet rocks to setup up my strobes. I couldn’t stop imagining a large wave coming in and washing my strobes out to sea. I finished getting setup and started shooting on the beach at the base of the cliff. Nick tried the trick a couple of times and upon another attempt he accidentally bailed and in doing so knocked his board into the ocean. All we could do was watch as the board was swallowed by sea. We packed up and left, defeated and in a state of complete disbelief. Several weeks later we returned determined to get the photo, the only problem was we were catching the tale end of the low tide. We hurried down the cliff got setup and started shooting on the beach again. He landed the trick within a couple of tries and I got a photo but I wasn’t really happy with it. The tide was rising and we were about to pack up when I had the idea of shooting from the top of the cliff. I rushed to the top of the cliff. Nick nailed the trick and we skated away with one of my favorite photos. #captureonepro

Moving from San Diego to Petaluma has come with some drawbacks and some perks, @griffodistillery is definitely a perk! #griffodistillery #gin #thebeesknees #productphotography #sonomacounty #petaluma
