It’s not often we get to know who’s behind the lens in some of today’s most popular photographs, but this trailer for “Shorebreak” follows award-winning photographer Clark Little into the eye of the storm to let viewers experience the power and beauty of his uncanny craft. Little throws himself in amongst the controlled chaos of the sea for that perfect shot by diving under one of the most dangerous shore breaks around the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. Filmed and edited by surfing guru Peter King, this documentary is full to the brim of neck breaking action, and sprinkled with tips and tricks from Little himself.
Little has been capturing the might of the Oahu North Shore since 2007. His wife wanted a picture of the ocean to hang on the bedroom wall so Little picked up a camera and dove into a perspective on photography that he would make world famous. From his base at the Clark Little Gallery in his hometown of Haleiwa, Little spends time running his business, but when the ocean calls, he is never far.
Clark’s work has been featured in exhibits in Japan, Canada, Brazil, Spain and throughout the U.S. From his living room walls to the halls of the Smithsonian, Clarks photos are everywhere, displaying his unique angles and raw passion.
On top of being featured in high regard amongst the likes of National Geographic, New York Times, TIME, and Surfer’s Journal, Little has also published three of his own books containing hundreds of beautiful images. Thumbing through one of his books will leave you with a twinkle in your eyes and a fuzzy feeling in your heart, inspired, and drooling in awe. Clark Little is a legend in ocean photography folk lure, and we look forward to continuing to join Little on this hair-raising ride.
SHOREBREAK: The Clark Little Story will be holding premiere screenings with Clark Little in attendance from the 17th to the 28th of June at various locations around the U.S. details here.
