NOVEMBER SHOOT AVAILABILITY

We’ve been experiencing a little fall wave famine this past week, but fingers crossed we see the North Pacific start to come alive and swing some fun swells our way. The water has begun to cool a little and we’ve had plenty of small but fun days with Santa Ana winds making for great pictures

Now that the clocks have gone back those nice and early sessions are finally back on the cards – so you can now grab your favorite dawn patrol sessions before work once again! With sunsets a little earlier now and the sun down before most people have finished work I will have a limited availability for these sessions for the next couple months. I still have them available to book, but please DM me if you’d like a sunset session.

For a recap on pricing you can find all my rates here: https://www.sandiegosurfphotos.com/Pricelist – and remember, for all private shoots you can have up tp 4 people, making it a super affordable way to get some great shots! – Ashleigh

Surfing Swamis with Devon DeMint

One of the true perks of my work is meeting incredible people like Devon DeMint. She’s a Leucadia local, absolute shredder, skateboarder, inspirational writer and rad mom to two little beach bums. You’d be hard pushed to meet someone with as much stoke and bigger smile than this little lady – plus, she’s got talent to match. As one of my favorite surfers to photograph, I was stoked to head to Swamis a few days ago

Known as @mermaidsightings on instagram, Devon has a follow worthy page and wonderful website www.taleofamermaid.com. She’s also the driving force behind this incredible ladies skate group www.sheskateshere.com (@sheskateshere). If you don’t already, you should go and follow her RIGHT NOW! Keep your eyes peeled for this mermaid at her local spot – North Reef Beacons.

Shooting for Her Waves – Surf inspired clothing designed for women by women

With the past couple months bringing less than exciting swell and keeping us photographers dodging rain showers, many emails have been appearing in my inbox asking for all kinds of ‘other’ photography. Usually I’ve got weeks of surf photo shoots scheduled in my diary, and am up to my eyeballs in edits for wave hungry surfers. This little bit of unusual downtime for me has been super exciting and allowed me to branch out from my daily norm and embark on exciting projects with incredible people.

I first met Jennipher founder of Her Waves through my surf photography not too long after I’d started out. I snapped a few pics of her surfing at Beacons and she’s always frequently turned up to shoots and collected some amazing shots of herself surfing. She approached me to help with photos for her awesome start up brand ‘Her Waves’ that she needed for her website, social media. I love new and exciting projects and especially with companies that rally resonate with my core values. It’s been so awesome to work with her on this fun project, and I’m excited for many more to come.

Many of you may have seen my recent model search post. I was totally overwhelmed with your support. Over 250 people reached out to help and I’ve been stoked to be able to include so many of you in some fun projects over the coming month – THANK YOU ALL!!!

So here’s a few pics from our shoot at Beacons last weekend. Rain threatened (as usual this winter) but somehow luck was on our side – the clouds parted, sun shone and even the surf turned on! Here’s a little peek of some of the shots from the session below – and don’t forget to check out www.herwaves.com for THE MOST AWESOME apparel for surf girls!
