Look who’s on the home page of FUEL.TV. The kind folk over ther contacted me about doing a photo feature on their website and by golly, Its live. Erik Jernberg, a writer for Fuel, even wrote a nice little essay about me and my history. At one point he even refers to me as the “the dean of wake photography.” Yes, by definition, thats a leader or senior member of a group. That sounds special.
Big thanks to Erik and everyone at Fuel for making it happen. The dean is very happy.
Below the link i’ve posted what I originally sent to Erik to write the article. Its just some one liners, but i think it really sums me up. If you’ve even wanted the cliff notes on my history, then here they are.
