About PhotoBoat

PhotoBoat's Professional Marine Photographers provide regatta and boating lifestyle photography, with specialties in commercial advertising photography, editorial photography, private yacht assignments and on-the-water event photography. Their online galleries include personal event photos, stock power and sailboat images, and marine art. They are based in Connecticut in the warm months and Florida during the winter, and regularly travel to Newport, Annapolis, Miami, Key West, Boston, New York, New Jersey, and other sailing hotspots.

Allen and Daniela ClarkAllen and Daniela Clark started PhotoBoat in 2005.  Their "crazy" style- harnessed into a small RIB and photographing and driving at the same time- got them noticed quickly, and their oustanding photos and professionalism have done the talking ever since.

Today the brand is known across the United States sailing community and beyond. With thousands of hours on the water photographing under their belts, Allen and Daniela use their experience and creativity to go beyond the usual.

And with as many hours logged at sea, and in front of the chalkboard as sailing instructors, their skills behind the "wheel" have been noticed across the country. Their "never-satisfied" attitude has made waves in the marine photography field.

Now Allen and Daniela shoot from a variety of platforms, depending on the gig and the client, but they normally use their 19'5" VSR, an upgrade in size from the dinghy, yet still small and light enough to get the close-up shots that nobody else can without disturbing the race course.thumbAllenTakingaShotinDinghy

Allen and Daniela both have 50 Ton Master USCG Captains licenses.

"PhotoBoat.com is a frequent contributor to WindCheck Magazine. Not only are their images super high quality, they are truly engaging and exciting. Allen and Daniela are easy to work with and make the process of photo selection fun. Whether you're choosing a personal shot of you and your crew, or a complex cover image for a magazine, PhotoBoat puts 100% into every aspect of their business...and they hold the record for having shot the most covers for WindCheck!" -Chris Gill, Editor WindCheck Magazine

"The Photos that Allen took during the Yngling Worlds are fantastic. He takes them all in a really small boat so he can get in close without getting in our way."-Krystal Weir, Austrailian Olympic Team

"You guys take some of the best action shots I have ever seen. The guys with the big powerboats always get in the way or throw a big wake if they are getting close enough to take good photos. I was impressed at how close you were able to get without ever interfering with the sailing." -Craig Thompson, 505 Sailor

"Please know that we appreciate PhotoBoat and want you to be successful. You have a small wind shadow, make very little turbulence and get great photos." -John Corwin, American Yacht Club

"Thank you for the great shot of me in my K6 at the HPDO that appeared on pages 10-11 of Sailing World this month.  Last fall, I bought from you an 8x12 of a similar shot  and it hangs here in my office, near a shot of me on the bow of Intrepid at the 2007 CMA regatta, a picture that you also took.  Thank you for your great work, I having been sailing for 40 years plus and never have seen so much fine sailing photography from a single source!" -Bruce Paulsen, American Yacht Club

"Thanks so much for attending our regatta this weekend. I heard so many compliments, not only on how great the pictures and slide show were, but also in regards to the impressive skills you have behind the wheel! Your participation in the event made Red Grant and even bigger success." -Doug Stryker, Raritan Yacht Club

"You guys do an awesome job! The pictures you took at the Annapolis NOOD are first rate, with a great eye for the action, not just a boat out sailing. Please keep coming back to the Annapolis races." -Gordon Latrobe, Annapolis Sailor

"Hey – just wanted to let you know that these photos of the Newport Regatta last weekend are AWESOME! You got some great pictures of the Jet 14 fleet, which we don’t get too often! Thanks so much!" -Claudia B. Reshetiloff
