National Geographic Travel Photographer Contest 2017

One of my photographs won an award from National Geographic.

National Geographic Prize Winning Photo (buy a print)

With more than 15,000 entries from 30 countries, I’m honored to be among the winners.

The winning photo is of Donavon Frankenreiter, a professional surfer at Cloudbreak in Tavarua, Fiji. Instead of the standard, done-before surf shots, we decided to try something different. The photo causes most people to do a double take.

Take a look at my surf gallery for more photos.

You can also purchase a print of the prize-winning photograph.

The Atlantic features my photo as the lead image on their coverage. Amazing!
