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."
Elevate! That’s my buzzword for 2023 and I can think of no better term as we enter a New Year teeming with promise and opportunity. It’s time to elevate our thinking and actions, elevate others: uplift, promote, advance, buoy … Any way you put it, it’s time to chin up, get out of the rut of these last trying years, and raise our sights. Up, up and away!
Each year when curating the new Ultimate Sailing Calendar, I seek to inspire and uplift my wonderful and faithful audience. Whether these images stir exploration and adventure, or just the simple joys of an afternoon sail, I hope the 2023 edition gives you the boost you deserve.
