Onne's Biography
World-class nautical photographer, Onne van der Wal, has used his extensive sailing experience to his advantage. During the 1981-82 Whitbread Around the World Race, Onne paired his photographic skills with his sailing skills shooting his first major magazine article for American sailing journal, SAIL Magazine. Since that time, Onne has used his keen eye to capture the “behind the scenes” look and feel of the yachting world. His love for travel, beautiful yachts and first-rate photography take him around the world to exotic destinations on assignments where he is able to combine these passions.

A Dutch native raised in South Africa, Onne now bases his business in Newport, Rhode Island where he fills his summers with commercial and editorial photography assignments, and travels extensively during the New England winters. Onne lives in Jamestown, RI with his wife and family and enjoys spending his free time fishing, camping, bodysurfing and tinkering in his workshop.



Alison Langley Photography

Alison Langley has provided some of the photos on our website and in our print catalogs. A passionate photographer and an experienced sailor, Alison says this of her career in marine photography:

"After studying film at NYU and photography at RISD, I traveled to Sydney Australia where I worked in the film industry for four years... I quickly learned the business side of the arts and, perhaps more importantly, I learned that my first love was photography. So I traded my traveling shoes for sailing shoes, and crewed on various yachts which took me around Australia, through the North & South Pacific, South East Asia, and across the Indian Ocean to Africa. I dove into a photography career and honed a specialty for shooting sailing and travel images. During this voyage, I created a substantial travel/sailing stock library and published my images and stories regularly in magazines such as Cruising World, Marie Claire, Sail, Islands and Patagonia."
