Monster Waves... Tricky Lighting... Astounding risk... Timeless Photographs.

"The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little" is nothing short of epic. Getting inside, over and under 30-40 foot waves is no small feat, especially with bulky camera equipment, and a goal of finding that perfect angle and lighting condition that makes a perfect shot.

Clark Little is pretty well known today as the foremost shorebreak art photographer (his art has been seen on "Good Morning America", and featured in a number of glossy magazines all over the world). But as much as we like the fantastic shots of various wave' innards, we are even more impressed to see him pitched against dangerous, massive amounts of water - violent waves, where you only have a moment to make that shot and to get out of the harm's way.

With exclusive permission of Clark Little Photography we publish today the rarely-seen photographs of Clark Little heading with his camera into...

Into the Vortex!

Encounter with a Wave (almost alien-like in intensity, if you ask me):

The Result: Out of This World

A glorious, almost Mandelbrot-like complexity is simply striking in this "Glitter" photograph (our favorite):

Unusual, over-saturated colors show up inside crystal clear waves, reflecting kaleidoscopic world around them:

There is also a place for pure abstraction, even psychedelic touches:

This image is titled "The Twelve Disciples" - see if you can spot some faces inside that wave, too:

Here is perhaps his most famous image: the wave's "mohawk", an amazingly colorful splash, featured recently inside National Geographic magazine:

Another singular splash:

Inside the belly of the beast: "The Twister" photograph shows what a violent wave is made of -

Even in the absence of killer monster waves, the shorebreak art can look slightly alien... Here is the little "Frosty" guy:

The Book! The Ultimate Spectacular Photo Book!

Can't get the computer screen wide enough and HD TV capable enough to give justice to Clark Little's slices of glorious wave eye-candy? Well, now you can order his book, a coffee table-sized huge book, in fact arguably a "mother of all coffee table books": 182 pages, over 100 photographs, 12x12 size, weighing close to 7 pounds.

Make sure you own a coffee table big enough to do this book justice (you might have to move your coffee cup closer to the edge, but then you might be already seating at the edge of your seat - with excitement over Clark Little's fantastic images).

Wow! Like you say those photos are absolutely out of this world! Great idea and imagination, with an even better end result. I'd have a go if I was a better swimmer but not sure the D90 would cope too well... Maybe just buying the book would be a better idea!

Yeah, I'm really pleased that someone did justice to what I've seen in Hawaii. Inside the tube is an existential beauty that can only be experienced for a few seconds. Well done!

Happy man he is I think! It is perfect to work among such a beauty every day!

Clark's pics are amazing for sure, but being from Hawaii, you should know that the awesome pics he gets are not from the giant shorebreak you see him in...they are from much much smaller perfect shorebreak waves. He still deserves a ton of credit and has balls of steel, but just saying...pretty good marketing, I guess.
