Clark Little on Good Morning America (2009):
“It all started in 2007
when Clark’s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.
Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and started
snapping away - capturing the beauty and power
of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out.

“Clark’s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be
able to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark’s photos.
Fig. 3 Sandmonster (sand in surf) Clark Little/JWNS
This shot captures sand from the ocean’s floor being swept up by
a monstrous wave, and resembles a sandstorm.
“There were clouds of sand ten feet high and I’m standing there.
I’m holding on to my camera and my trigger as long as I can.
Then I have to jump into the cloud of sand to try to get out of danger’s way.”

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has
taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel.”
Since the recent stir of Clark’s work, his images have been run on the
Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature’s Best Photography,
Paris Match (France), La Vie (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine,
Surfer magazine, Surfer’s Journal, joe-ks.com, as well as multiple
publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.

With a high shutter speed he caught
fanned effect of two waves intersecting each other,
throwing out this beautiful fan of water.
