This guy stands in the water and waits
until the last second to snap his camera
shutter, then takes a beating when
the wave collapses over him.
Waimea Bay Shore-break surfer pioneer, husband and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition on National TV for his photography. It all started in 2007 when Clark's wife wanted a piece of art to decorate a wall at home.
Voluntarily Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in water and started snapping away, capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. "Clark's view" is an unique view of the ocean that most will only be able to experience safely on the land while studying in one of Clark's photos.
Now with a camera upgraded and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel.
Since the recent stir of Clark's work, his images have been run on The Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature's Best Photography, Paris Match, La Vie (France), Hana Hou Magazine (Hawaiian Airlines), Surfer Magazine, Surfer's Journal, as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the US and overseas.
The following pictures are selection of his best shots:

The photo "Sand in Surf" as shown below captures sand from ocean's floor being swept up by a monstrous wave and resembles a sandstorm. Clark Little calls it "The Sand Monster". His fans pays as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos.
