In Clark Little’s spectacular shorebreak photography, he takes you directly inside a wave so you can witness firsthand its power and its beauty. Growing up on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii, Clark surfed the fearsome Waimea Bay shorebreak in his youth and now captures it and many other heart-stopping waves around the world with his camera. His technique of placing himself right inside the lip of the wave as its about to crash down is both dangerous and revealing.
Little’s gorgeous image above is titled “Last Blast,” and the story behind it epitomizes what his unique process is all about. In this edition of “How I Made It,” he gives us the inside scoop on the image and explains why he calls it one of his best shots ever.
If you want to see more of Little’s work, including the behind-the-scenes photo we’ve included below (shot by his son Dane), you should get a copy of his beautiful new book, "Clark Little: The Art of Waves", which goes on sale April 5th, 2022.
