Clark Little, once known for being photographed while wiping out at Waimea’s giant shorebreak, is now the man behind the lens. Clark is world renown for his jaw-dropping, ocean imagery that has stood out amongst the best in photography as a whole.
As the younger brother to big wave surfer, Brock Little, Clark chose a different path to fame. He now spends his days being thrashed by the waves of Oahu’s North Shore, capturing special moments in time that many never get to see. He has proven that there are ways to make money with ocean photography outside of the surf industry.
In an interview with for the “High Shredability” series with VICE, Clark stated that, “Everybody is chasing Pipe trying to get that cover photo of that surfer surfing or whatever… and I thought, ‘I’m just going to shoot these big shorebreak waves, get inside one, and try to get something different.’”
