My name is Anthony Lombardi, I am glad to share my photos with you and I hope that you enjoy looking at them. I have shot photography for over ten years, using film most of the time and recently making the switch to digital. The large majority of the images are not digitally enhanced or altered. The shots exist to depict the subject in its natural environment, or as you would see them in the wild. On this site, you will find pictures of humpback, blue, gray, fin, and minke whales, as well as various types of dolphins, sea lions, elephant seals, and killer whales. Also included are pictures of the oddest fish around - the mola mola. Lighthouses are highlighted as well, along with other visually stimulating images from in, on, and around the oceans.
The cetacean images and most of the marine life are taken in the Santa Barbara Channel, specifically within the Channel Islands area off the central coast of California. The Santa Barbara Channel is one of the best places in the world to view dolphins and whales of all types. It is a great backyard playground to interact with all of the natural beauty!
The surf photography is from local surf spots along the central coast of California, focusing on surfers of all types and styles. The tow surfing pictures are from other trips further out in the channel. My pictures appear in the July 2006 "Shark Park" issue of Surfing Magazine
and the June 2006 edition of Blue Edge Magazine
and also the January 2008 and August 2008 edition of Deep Magazine
. I strive to make each image unique. Shooting surf photography is another one of my favorite passions. Being so close to the power of the water is unexplainable.
