Portrait of Surfer Magazine staff photographer, Todd Glaser

24 08 2011

I shot this portrait of Surfer Magazine photographer Todd Glaser at my home in Encinitas. Todd is a versatile photographer with great skills in the water. Incorporating water into the shot seemed to be quite appropriate. Check out his work at www.tglaser.com

Gary Stuber, Surfboard Laminator at Moonlight Glassing

14 04 2011

Created in 1979, Moonlight Glassing is a special sort of place where surfboards have been decorated, glassed, polished, and sanded for over 30 years. Understated and unpretentious, the factory has put the finishing touches on thousands of surfboards for pros such as Rob Machado and Taylor Knox and labels such as Channel Islands and the Campbell Brothers. They specialize in custom color, airbrush, pinlines, resin tint, channels and fin set-ups for seasoned veterans and backyard shapers alike. Gary Stuber is Moonlight’s laminator and is responsible for  applying the fiberglass to the shapers creation giving it both function and fashion. Gary is a master craftsman and has probably glassed more surfboards than anyone, which is no minor accomplishment.
