I’m happy to be part of the  2010 Artists for Save the Bay exhibition, in Providence RI on Thursday, November 18th.

Save the Bay is my all time favorite organization, since I can remember the days when Narragansett Bay was polluted beyond belief, but is now clean enough to swim in and survive.  So, come on by 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence RI and Buy Art and continue to “save the bay”.

November 18th   5:30 – 7:30 at 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence, RI

CRUISING WORLD magazine, the leading sailing publication, featured this image of mine in their November 2009 issue.  It was shot in the Atlantic while sailing to the Caribbean from Newport, RI.

I also wrote the supporting text, which explains weather concerns while sailing at sea.

While on assignment for the German news magazine STERN, I shot photos of Martha’s Vineyard as part of a commentary about President Obama’s choice of summer vacation.  The aerial photo was taken on an early morning flight over Oak Bluffs from a powered paraglider, a week before the helicopters from the White House were seen flying in.  MV-lead

I’ve been documenting the experience of flying a paraglider over dramatic landscapes for low altitude perspectives.  This photo featured in the December issue of Men’s Journal, was by far the most incredible flight I’ve been on.  I was in Canada shooting a winter kite-sailing competition, where I discovered this remote lighthouse frozen into the St. Lawrence River.

Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.   Paragliding 200 feet above the St. Lawrence River, Michael Eudenbach looks down at ice floes broken by tankers pulling in and out of a shipping channel near Trois-Rivieres, 84 miles northeast of Montreal.  “The ice is three to four feet thick,” says the photographer, 38, who fastened a camera to the gliders wing and used a remote trigger for this shot.  “It’s stable enough to hike out to the lighthouse (top left), which is surrounded by water all summer.”  From December till March, kite- and windsurfers congregate to take advantage of the thick ice and high winds.  The biggest challenge is the temperature, says Eudenbach.  “At 15 degrees I could fly for only 20 minutes before I got too damn cold.”   – Dacus Thompson / Men’s Journal / December 2008

Five of my images were chosen as “Nominees” in the 4th Annual Black and White Spider Awards, the leading international award honoring excellence in black and white photography.

Thousands of images were received from sixty-two countries. The nominated photographers were selected by a who’s who Judging Panel from the international photography community, including Sotheby’s, Tate Gallery (London), and Fratelli Alinari Museum (Florence).

“The Spider Awards celebrates photographers who operate at the highest levels of their craft,” said the awards Creative Director, Basil O’Brien.

BICYCLING magazine published a photo from a shoot I did of triathlete Kris Muller on Point Reyes in California to illustrate an article about training drills for cyclists.  In the September 2008 issue.

Michael Eudenbach paragliding over the beach on Martha’s Vineyard.

 

This spread is currently on the news stands in the October issue of Men’s Fitness magazine, to feature paragliding as a “sport for adrenaline junkies”.  It’s a great platform to shoot from, and as Jeff Goin, president of the US Powered Paragliding Association says, “It’s probably the closest thing to bird flight.”

I shot this photo using a custom camera mount suspended from the paraglider lines just beneath the wing.  It had to be light yet durable to withstand take-offs and landings.  Flying over water can be risky, so to stay safe I always make sure I’m within gliding distance to the beach, in case the motor quits.  Look for more of these types of images that I’ve got out there… since shooting from a paraglider is so much fun!

"Kona" shaking off on the Vineyard as seen in Outside magazine.

A favorite page among Outside magazine readers, the “Parting Shot” is always a somewhat comical scene from the outside world. The image shows “Kona” (Border Collie) shaking off after a serious ball-fetching session at Lucy Vincent Beach on Martha’s Vineyard. Yes, I got some sand and salt-water spray all over the camera, but it was well worth it.  Currently on newsstands in the August 08 issue.

My image of the famous J Class Yacht Endeavour is being displayed in advertising by Fan Pier for use on the web and on billboards throughout Boston, MA. (pictured here on 93 South).  It’s always fun to see your work printed big, and this is a new level of big for all of us to check out while sitting in traffic and wishing we were sailing instead.   Also mentioned on the Aurora Photos News blog.   – Mike
