The Fantastic Photography of Clark Little

Today we’re featuring the fantastic photography of Clark Little, an amazing surf photographer.

His photographs have been mesmerizing the world since 2007, with captivating photos taken inside waves as well as stunning angles usually only seen by hard core surfers.

His work has been showcased extensively through the media such as on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Inside Edition as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and abroad.

His limited Edition book, The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little, is now in production and will be available for purchase online in the summer of 2009.

Now, let’s browse through some of his collection and enjoy this breathtaking experience…

You can find out more about Clark at his website

Clark travels the world presenting his photographs on the big screen. For his summer tour schedule please visit this page.

His book called “The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little” will be available exclusively through his website and is expected to be released in July/August 2009. $1 of each copy sold will be donated to charity.

His stunning photos can be purchased in a number of different sizes directly through his website, and I highly recommend them as they’re truly spectacular.

Please know that I’m getting no financial gain whatsoever from this recommendation or this article, I simply enjoy supporting great artists in any way I can and Clark’s work is certainly worthy of this recommendation.

“I enjoy the power and beauty of the thick bombs that roll through. Now I can capture some of those heavy moments without getting slammed. Well, most of the time.”   Clark Little

    I wonder about the waves you didn’t get shots of because they closed too fast… ouch. I’ve body surfed a lot and certainly remember getting squashed a few times…

    Really brave work there.
    Love it.

    I am ELATED to see so many photos of my favorite thing, waves. I feel the adrenalin mounting with these! What profound curves and motion that has been captured seconds before the waves crashed and disappeared.

  • Liora

    I just checked out Clark Little’s site, and there are some even more stunning photos under the “new images” section. As an ex-beach bum, these photos really capture the essence of sand, sea, sun and sky.

  • Printhouse

    Wow, never mind the amazing photography, to get that perfect moment to take the picture. I wonder if he surf while taking the photographs or just jump out of the water just before the wave breaks.
