A few months ago I woke up on a chilly “June gloom” morning to shoot with professional female surfer @LakeyPeterson for @ESPN’s annual The Body Issue.

As we were headed to the water, she hesitated for a second and said “I feel like I’m forgetting something” … “oh, my wetsuit” a joke which brightened the moody weather. The water was chilly and she handled it like the champ that she is.

I believe shooting with an athlete is a collaboration and it was especially so with Lakey. It was a fun challenge to creatively work together to find and capture the appropriate angles to capture her body and athleticism while surfing a wave that wasn’t the same every time.

30 minutes in the water was more than enough to nail it. ✨
