The Story Behind This Shot:

Horizon Reflections was captured during my trip to French Polynesia in August 2015. In order to get a spot on the media media boat for the WSL Billabong Pro at Teahupoo I turned up at 6.30 every morning at the dock and asked if I could join them. After a couple of mornings they gave in and allowed me on board. I captured this image on my first ride out with the media boat looking out onto the outer reef. The ocean was unbelievable still and the clouds made a perfect reflection. You could practically flip the image upside down and get away with it!

Captured with the Olympus E-M1 and M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8. The E-M1 has some of the most amazing on sensor stabilization imaginable. Meaning the whole sensor moves to compensate for the photographers movement/shake. This even worked flawlessly while I was sitting in a rocking boat climbing up and down 10ft waves! Again, making my job of capturing the surfers getting barreled easy.


Read below for more information on the print and how it’s made. It’s a rather cool and unique process and the wood texture definitely adds great character to the shot!



Through their unique process of printing photographs directly on wood, they create high quality images that utilize the natural wood grain of each piece of Baltic Birch Wood.  The inks used are not only extremely durable, but they are also very transparent the lighter the ink the more wood grain you’ll be able to see.  Have a look at the image to the right and you’ll be able to see the lighter colors bring out the grain, while the darker colors block the grain completely.  You’re also able to see the entire tint of the image change slightly, and this is because we’re printing onto a natural piece of wood.


Baltic birch wood is used, which is produced in the good ol’ US of A.  Baltic birch is a great wood, it has a beautiful grain which shows through each and every wood print that’s printed.  The wood is harvested for construction purposes only, which means that the natural forest is not harmed in the manufacturing of the wood panels.  The wood is constructed by laminating layers of birch veneer together, making our product 3/4″ thick.  The side of the wood is then beveled at a 45 degree angle which gives the piece a nice dimension.  Classic Wood Prints have also designed a hanging system which makes it simple and easy to install.
