Who I Am

About JB...


...of every type.


As a SURFER Magazine Senior Staff photographer for twenty years on the infamous North Shore of Oʻahu, his photographs have been on dozens of covers and hundreds of magazine pages. Now a member of the board of directors of the North Shore Community Land Trust, his lifelong love for the ocean has led him to care deeply about stewardship of the land as well. When  Hawaii's iconic voyaging canoe, Hōkūleʻa, came to Haleʻiwa in 2013, he became deeply captivated by the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, and the mission ultimately drew him in. Describing it as ‘the greatest group of people’ and ‘the most meaningful thing’ he’s ever been part of, he is now traveling extensively to shoot a book about the voyage, which will be published by Patagonia in the fall of 2017. He has just completed his training to become a core crew member.
