Next Wave Studios
Award-winning photographer and owner of Next Wave Studios, Kyle Hughes completed an intensive education program at one of the most prestigious photography schools in the United States, the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turner Falls, Mass., in 2002. He spent two years working with a high volume photography company in Salisbury, Md., and Charleston, S.C. He spent the next few years in Ocean City apprenticing for a local master portrait photographer, learning the business of photography before opening his own private studio in 2004.
After buying his home in West Ocean City at the age of 23, Kyle spent months planning, designing and building his dream studio in his back yard. The private studio is fully equipped with a fresh modern look, including a changing area, a comfortable sitting and viewing room, and large area for indoor studio portraits.
Kyle spends a lot of his free time giving back to the community, judging local photography contests, donating time and services to local charities and benefits, and helping with team sports at the Ocean City?s Northside Park and Recreation Center. He is the center?s official photographer. He is a member of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, as well as a member of a local and national professional photographers? associations.
Kyle loves photography and how it makes his clients feel.

- The boardwalk benches from the Coast Guard Museum north to Thrasher's all face the boardwalk. From the Northside of the Pier Building (Ripley's) to 4th Street there are benches facing both the boardwalk and the ocean. From 4th Street North to the end of the boardwalk all of the benches face the boardwalk; the sea wall runs from 4th Street North and is about hip high; therefore sitting on a bench facing the ocean; you would not be able to see very much. At one time the benches from 4th Street North were flip back benches; meaning the back could move so that you could sit facing either direction; however in order to make the seating on the boardwalk more aesthetically pleasing per the Boardwalk Development Association those benches were done away with and a more decorative bench was used that does not give you the ability to face either direction.
