As a photographer, it is my job to tell a story through each image captured by my cameras.Â That’s why I enjoy sharing my work with my fans and the local public while having an opportunity to convey the story behind each photograph.Â Towards the end of 2010, I decided to exhibit some of my never before seen photos. I partnered up with a popular South Florida surf shop, Island Water Sports, and organized an event in the store parking lot so that I could project the photos from the past year of my surf travels.Â Leading up to the event, I devised a way to promote the event: 10 FPS (Frames Per Second).Â Since much of my work is shot in sequences, I pieced together the most interesting frames to make a movie.Â 10 FPS was formed as a way to promote my annual show but also to highlight my year.Â The video got a huge response and the next year people started asking if I would make another. So, I went to work and created an even better video from my 2011 images.Â The video production is put together by carefully selecting the right stills to import into iMovie and adding just the right music.
