The Story Behind This Shot:

Speckle is one of those shots you get every millionths attempt. Captured at Dee Why on an early morning swim. Nothing beats the sun rising over the horizon and lighting up a wave from behind like it does in this shot. It’s a moment that might just last for a fraction of a second. Add a surfer pumping his way through the wave and a droplet of water on the lens port on the underwater housing refracting the light and you get: Speckle. Not sure if I will ever got a shot like this again… I guess that’s the beauty if it all.


Captured with the Olympus E-M1 and M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO inside the PT-EP11 housing. The E-M1’s focussing capabilities surprise time and time again! This is a particularly difficult shot for a camera. moment before the direct sunlight was hitting the sensor and add a load of movement in multiple directions to the scene and yet the camera seemed to know what I wanted to focus on, tracked the surfer and shot a perfect burst of images. What more could I have asked for?


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.
