As I started my career as a surf photographer, I was lured to the beauty of the North Shore of Hawaii. A place where I came back every winter to photograph the last leg of the Surfing Tour.
The Hawaiians on the North Shore have a fierce reputation, One that controls the surf among other things.
Local Only is a book project depicting the portraits of those surfers that took six years to complete but as yet has not seen the light of the day due to unforeseen circumstances.
These are some of those portraits from the project.
Shot on a 6x7 Pentax, 6x6 Hasslblad and 4x5 Linhoff Technika. All taken on film.
