Ultimate Sailing Photography
Our speaker will be the internationally renowned and award-winning photographer, Sharon Green. She is one of the world’s leading yachting photographers, capturing electrifying images of performance sailing for nearly four decades. Her eye for color, light, energy and form has elevated yacht racing photography to a new level of artistry. As photographer and curator of the Ultimate Sailing Calendar since 1983, her images have brought thousands of viewers virtually into the heart of the fray, to fully experience the passion, bustle, and splendor of competitive sailing. Sharon has also been extensively published in the world’s foremost boating periodicals and has published two books since first picking up a camera in her teens. She was awarded an honorary degree from the prestigious Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, Calif. in recognition of her extraordinary accomplishments. Sharon has worked on nine America’s Cups and countless other high-profile campaigns and regattas over the years; hanging out of helicopters and whisking through waves aboard jostling boats, to capture the most spectacular, action-packed and historic sailing images of the era.
"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.”
