Photography is something I'm into because I love to capture images of nature and interesting things. Playing with RAW files in post is also fun for me. I'm a coastal dweller and a surfer. I love to board surf, bodysurf and shoot surf and ocean stuff from the water.

I enjoy Flickr because of the contacts I've met and the great and diverse photos I get to check out from around the world. These are my photos and just a peek at what I do for fun and the area I live. I travel when I can and almost always bring my camera. I know there are over 7000 pics in my photostream. It's nearly impossible to look at them all. I have organized my work into sets by subject to help you narrow down your search for stuff you might find interesting. Have fun and keep shooting....Hugh 1/2/13

    Matt Grans Photography says:

    "Hugh is not only a superb surf photographer, who's works I feel should be in every publication on the subject, but has equal talents in every other various subject he shoots, regardless of whether it be people shots, trains, sunsets or whatever… it's all the same, just plain and simply, freaking awesome. I check out Hugh's photo stream most every day and am always inspired by the images he posts. Few other photographers have the sense for poetry in motion, and the ability to come away with such dramatic imagery in such a crisp clean well taken way, with framing to die for in most every killer shot. To see the pure quality of Hugh's work, don't view in Large size only, but take the extra step to view in original size and you will be transported to being inside the action… lastly, his images make great computer screen wallpapers. Hugh is generous to post his images in sizes that you can use and enjoy on a daily basis. In short, Hugh rocks. Nuf Sed!"

    "I've enjoyed Hugh's photos here, and elsewhere, for a number of years and remain continuously impressed with his eye, and his ability to translate what he sees into photos. He just gets it!

    Whether it's bodysurfing (my top interest), empty waves, his home turf of San Clemente, sunset, birds or travel, Hugh's pictures are consistently stimulating, vibrant, colorful, well-composed and compelling.

    I monitor Hugh's photos here at Flickr closely, and recommend them to anyone! Also, I highly value his shots where I happen to be the (in-water) subject...I've a album of them."

    "Hugh's photos are always a pleasure for me to look at. He captures so many moments in his life so well. He is the quintissential "I take my camera with me everywhere" guy. Not only that, he takes breathtaking action photos that really capture the feeling in that moment.
    For only shooting seriously for a short while now, his potential is never ending. Thanks for the great photos Hugh."
