Waves of Hawaii

Capturing magical moments inside the tube



Waimea Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two,
Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography
with appearances on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and
many local news stations across the U.S.

Clark Little on Good Morning America (2009): “It all started in 2007
when Clark’s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.
Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and started
snapping away - capturing the beauty and power
of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out.

“Clark’s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be
able to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark’s photos.


Fig. 3   Sandmonster (sand in surf)   Clark Little/JWNS
This shot captures sand from the ocean’s floor being swept up by
a monstrous wave, and resembles a sandstorm.
“There were clouds of sand ten feet high and I’m standing there.
I’m holding on to my camera and my trigger as long as I can.
Then I have to jump into the cloud of sand to try to get out of danger’s way.”

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has
taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel.”
Since the recent stir of Clark’s work, his images have been run on the
Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature’s Best Photography,
Paris Match (France), La Vie (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine,
Surfer magazine, Surfer’s Journal, joe-ks.com, as well as multiple
publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.

These incredible images of waves in the Hawaiian Islands were taken by
Clark Little, the number one photographer of surf. He is dedicated to
photographing the waves and has published a selection of his best images

This shot is Clark’s favourite. With a high shutter speed he caught
the brilliant fanned effect of two waves intersecting each other,
throwing out this beautiful fan of water.
His fans pay as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos (see link below).
