This is a space dedicated to the sailing authorial photography. We live in a time when we are completely swamped with images. My goal is search and find in this plethora of pictures those that have something more to say, maybe something hidden at first sight or a great story and experience behind.

Phil Harmer is trying to drive downwind in a big sea state. A few seconds after this shot, Phil was calling everybody on deck to take a second reef as the wind was
“The boat finished 3rd in this leg. I have spent many nights on deck during this Volvo, trying to get this kind of picture. At night, you have to compose with the low light. For that, I had to find the good balance between the light (in this instance the moon behind the clouds) the sky, the weather and sea state. I wanted the boat perfectly in focus and pin-sharp and the waterfall totally blurred to create this effect, like a Science Fiction movie. It has been technically hard to get this one when you are sailing down the wave at 25knts onboard a shaker like the Volvo 65”.
As a sea and adventure lover, I could not start with any other picture than this: It is so evocative, not only in its subjects – ocean, night, squall – but also knowing the huge efforts the photographer went to in order to capture it. Being an OBR during the Volvo Ocean Race is one of the most dangerous and tough job in the world and this picture is not only a simple snapshot as many other images, It is mainly artistic because Martin wanted to create exactly that effect.
