Item Description

Point Reyes National Seashore Association is delighted to partner with Nick Allen, a photographer who has offered this beautiful C-type photographic print framed in white wood, 29" x 21", by Nick Allen, Within Waves. The image was captured in waters off of Point Reyes National Seashore.

Captivated by the power, colors, and textures of the ocean since he was a child, Nick Allen started photographing waves as an art student at Humboldt State University in Northern California in the early 1990s.  He used analog cameras and felt his way through the darkroom, learning the basics of traditional photography while exploring the remote beaches of Northern California and the lower Pacific Northwest.

Nick says, "I continued my education at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, where I studied commercial photographyportraiture, studio lighting and digital imaging. Bringing my technical skills and fascination for the ocean together, I started seeing and photographing waves in an entirely new way.

He continues, "Using waterproof housings for my 35mm, medium-format and digital cameras, I photograph while I'm swimming, which allows me to position myself within the wave.  I'm continually fascinated by the behavior of light as it passes through different parts of the wave."

Feel the wave and get into the mood with this gorgeous print, bid today!
