Father and son surf lesson in Morro Bay, CA 1 of 12

Father and son surf lesson in Morro Bay, CA. Father is Ben Monmonier, son is Julian Boqha Monmonier. I like this wholesome family-oriented series of 12 images of a father and his son bonding during a surf lesson. They had a great time, and the little grom Julian took the new surf name Boqha to commemorate this step in his life. Boqha has great form and is a natural. Watch for future commercial endorsements for this athlete. The father gave me permission to photograph their entire surf lesson today 21 Dec 2007 Friday 21dec2007 - Photo by Mike Baird, Canon 40D with 300mm f/2.8 IS lens handheld surfmorrobay.com bairdphotos.com flickr.bairdphotos.com photomorrobay.com morro-bay.com

re: 09 Jan 2010 Creative Commons use note: Reply: Dana H. Glazer dhglazer {at} gmail d o t com, That's a great project. I'm always very happy to contribute to these things. dhglazer@gmail.comhttp://www.flickr.com/people/mikebaird/#credit answers all questions about attribution, but I'm happy any way you want to do it as I know consistently is essential. Best Success in your ventures - I'm impressed w/ the YouTube Video and your www.evolutionofdad.com/ site - the world need more like this! dhglazer@gmail.com - From: Dana via Flickr To: Baird, Michael - Subject: [Flickr] The Evolution of Dad Documentary Project reaching out to you - :: The Evolution of Dad Documentary Project reaching out to you. I recently discovered the amazing photo you did, titled "Father and Son Surf Lesson," and wanted to invite you to have it be included in a feature documentary that I am making. My project, “The Evolution of Dad,” explores the changing role of fatherhood in a way no other documentary has previously. The goal of the film is to instruct and inspire dads to get more involved with their kids – something I believe can change the world. The film has already been mentioned in Time Magazine and a related video was #1 on YouTube for Father’s Day. More information about the project can be found at www.evolutionofdad.com. The beginning of the film will be a collage of pictures relating to fatherhood and your photo would have the possibility of being featured there. While there is no monetary compensation, if included in the film, your picture will be viewed by a great many people and you will be credited at the end of the film. If you are interested in taking part in this project, write back and I will share with you the next steps in the process. Please email me directly at dhglazer {at} gmail d o t com. Thanks for your time. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Sincerely, Dana H. Glazer, Director, The Evolution of Dad Project - www.evolutionofdad.com
