Sharon is happiest when she is on the water or hanging from a helicopter in search of the elusive image that can be called 'Ultimate Sailing'. "My greatest satisfaction is when it all comes together: the anticipation, planning, organizing, traveling and epic conditions that combine to create a thrilling photograph. The pursuit of 'Ultimate Sailing' images never seems to grow old. Four decades and I still love the challenge of creating memorable images for my clients and the calendar."
Sharon Green – Ultimate Sailing in association with Gareth Kelly – Bowline Films are thrilled to announce their documentary short film, Fresh to Frightening – The Sharon Green Story is on tour.
The 19-minute short film tells the story of how a young woman from Canada - Sharon Green - inspired by her father's yacht racing triumph, rises to the top through the '80s and ’90s of a male-dominated industry to become one of the leading competitive yacht racing photographers in the world and the founder of Ultimate Sailing.
Take a glimpse behind the scenes of this glamorous and exciting sport as Green preps for races, chases down the wind, and takes to the sky in a helicopter hoping to capture images of majestic racing yachts in “big seas & big winds”, conditions Green lives for and calls – Fresh to Frightening.
