Lucas Dirkse – Backlit

Been having a great time taking advantage of the beautiful late autumn afternoon light in California. Spent the past couple days shooting my friend and local surf-phenom Lucas Dirkse at the reefs in La Jolla. Lucas has incredible natural talent and timeless style. He can also ride anything under his feet while making it look easy. Looking forward to working with him some more this week if conditions continue to favor us.
