Brave Man Captures Breathtaking Shots of World’s Biggest Waves

Clark Little grew up in Hawaii. As a kid, he and his brother body-surfed in Waimea Bay – until he decided to get a board and try surfing.

“I just got this killer vibe and feeling.”

Fast forward to eight years ago, when, Little says, “My wife came home with a picture of a wave of Waimea shorebreak, and I’m like “honey, don’t bother buying a picture – I’ll go out, I’ll take it. “

He “started with a little point and shoot taking one picture at a time.” The first camera he used for surf shots was a Canon SD500 and “a $150 underwater housing from Amazon.”

He put his photos “out there” – on the web – and the next thing he knows, a UK company runs 20 of his shots. Following morning, he’s got 700 emails. Then it’s Good Morning America, the Today Show, Inside Edition, all on the phone trying to get him up to New York for the
next morning.

Since then, he’s appeared or been interviewed all over the world, from Japanese TV to an Apple promo piece.

It’s more than a little bit like riding a wave of a different kind.

Settings? Camera? His go-to gear (as of mid-2013) has evolved to Nikon bodies (D300, D3 and D4); Nikkor Fisheye 10.5mm and 16mm lenses; and waterproof housings by Water Housings Hawaii.

And with this written, you absolutely believe him when he says:

“I just went out there and did what I did and did what I loved…It’s fun, dude.”
