Sharon Green has been capturing electrifying images of performance sailing for more than three decades. Her annual Ultimate Sailing Calendar, featuring the highlights of competitive yacht racing around the globe, is eagerly anticipated by thousands of boating, sports and photography enthusiasts worldwide.
Sharon has also been extensively published in the world’s foremost boating periodicals and published two books since first taking up a camera in High School. Since then she has worked on eight America’s Cups, and countless other high profile campaigns and regattas. In recognition of her extraordinary accomplishments in photography Sharon was awarded an honorary Masters Degree from the prestigious Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California, where she resides.
Sharon’s happiest when photographing on the water, or from a helicopter, in ‘fresh-to-frightening’ conditions – in search of the elusive images that represent ‘Ultimate Sailing.’ “My greatest satisfaction is when it all comes together: the anticipation, organization, high-powered yachts sailed by stellar crews, and epic conditions, that combine to create a thrilling photograph. The pursuit of ‘Ultimate Sailing’ images never grows old. Three decades and I still love the challenge of creating memorable images for my clients and the calendar.”
“If you love sailing and love photography like we do Sharon Green’s new book is a must have. You might want to read the coffee table size book with your foulies on. The book is alive with color, excitement and movement. Her images come off the page and make you feel the wind and the spray. Sharon seems to be in the right place at the right time, all the time. Her long lens puts you in the middle of the action as she captures that special moment in time.”
“We think that 30 Years of Ultimate Sailing makes an excellent gift. It’s a great addition to anyone’s library. Now ASA members have a chance to acquire a very special hand signed copy of this extraordinary photographic collection spanning her prolific 30-year career. Don’t miss this unique opportunity. ”
