Dawn at the Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego

I recently sold a beautiful 60″ print of “Dawn at the Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego” for display in a client’s home. I’ve had images presented in quite a few print publications, museums, aquariums, etc. but the most rewarding sale is to a client who wishes to include my photography in their home since it means the image has the same sort of impact on my client that it does on me. I have not kept count but I know that I’ve had at least a few dozen print requests over the years for images of places where couples have become engaged. Each one of my images has an emotional significance for me — I can usually remember the moment I pressed the shutter release for each of my photos as well as the people I was with at the time, even for photographs made underwater 20+ years ago — and I feel successful if my image also has a similar gravity for its viewer.

The Ocean Beach Pier is one of my favorite piers, with a stark structure and clean geometrical lines. Here are a few images of the Ocean Beach Pier shot within the last few years, all available as large prints should you be interested. Cheers and thanks for looking!
