The most gorgeous pictures of the insides of waves by Clark Little (38 pictures)

Award-winning photographer Clark Little was born in Napa, California in 1968. Two years later, a move to the North Shore of Oahu (Hawaii) dramatically changed his future. In the 80’s and 90’s he made his name as a pioneer of surfing at the Waimea Bay shorebreak. Clark had a unique talent for taking off on hopeless closeout shorebreak waves and surviving in one piece.

In 2007, Clark discovered his ability and passion to capture the extraordinary beauty of the shorebreak when his wife asked him for a picture of the ocean to decorate a bedroom wall. With the confidence of an experienced surfer, Clark went out and bought a waterproof camera setup, jumped in the ocean, and started snapping away, recording the beauty and power of Hawaiian waves. “Clark’s view” is a unique and often dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out, captured in photos for all to enjoy from the safety of dry land.

In just 6 years, Clark has gained worldwide recognition for his North Shore shorebreak wave photography with exhibitions in Japan, Brazil and throughout the US and appearances on television shows including Good Morning AmericaThe Today ShowInside EditionDiscovery Channel, ABC World News Now, and NHKand Asahi TV programs in Japan.

Clark’s work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum, Alden B. Dow Museum, Science Museum of Virginia, Parco Logos Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), The Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton Resorts, and published in National Geographic, New York Times, LIFE, Nikon World, Paris Match, Outdoor Japan, Sierra, Geo, Nature’s Best Photography, Rangefinder, Surfer’s Journal among others. Commercial clients include Apple, Nike, Nikon, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Toyota, Anheuser Busch, Lockheed Martin, Verizon, and XS Energy Drink.

In November 2009, Clark published his 182-page debut art book, The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little. Then in January 2011, Clark opened the Clark Little Gallery Haleiwa in his hometown of Haleiwa, Hawaii just down the road from many of the North Shore beaches featured in his photography.
