My buddy Anthony Giordano is an accomplished television producer and an even better friend. Recently he invited me down to spend some time at his rental property in Nicaragua. In addition to some of the greatest surf beaches in the world, I think these photographs give a glimpse of this beautiful country and it’s people.

“(I really like your photography) but one thing I have always wondered? How do you make a living at this? …are they friends and relatives? I am only asking, because they seem so comfortable in front of the camera.”
