Reese Peters test shots ~ Encinitas

Frank Models talent Reese Peters, and I, shot a few weeks ago in our neighborhood, Encinitas California.  Nothing planned just two girls hoping to create something special and have fun along the way.  Reese changed a few times in the car.  No H&M just natural.  I love how some of these turned out.  Reese is a perfect model, beautiful, young, talented and fun.  Here are some of my favorites from the photo shoot

Robin Van Gyn for ROXY

Robin Van Gyn for ROXY

My best friend Robin van Gyn and I went on an amazing European trip last February 2015. We spent weeks exploring the beautiful mountains of Italy, Austria, France, and Switzerland.  Robin is such a hard working athlete and is so knowledgeable in the back country.  Roxy licensed these images below and used them in everything, from catalogs to billboards in Disneyland.

Nike Hood to Coast Event Capture

I recently covered the 2015 Hood to Coast event, in which Nike participated in. I worked with Conscious Minds, a great team who I’ve worked with in the past several times. The Hood to Coast event is a 24-hour long relay race held every year in Oregon, usually on the Friday and Saturday prior to the Labor Day weekend. It is among the biggest and longest relay races in the world. For walkers and runners, participating in the Hood to Coast event is an item on their bucket list.

Together with a small team in a van, we followed the Nike team’s journey through the race.   We slept in Vans, and got hit straight on with a hurricane.  Here are some wonderful shots from the said event.  

New Billabong Lookbook Spreads

Last March 2015, I traveled to Mayhaufen, a small town in Austria, together with athletes Helen Schettini, Taylor Godber, and Wolle Nyvelt to shoot some missing pieces for Billabong's ad campaign and 2016 product lookbook. Mayhaufen is such a cool town, and it is home to Wolle Nyvelt. In fact, we stayed at his parents' hotel just a couple of blocks away from his home. We stayed there for three days.

The shoot was done very quickly, but sometimes that's just how you have to do it.  We were accompanied by Andrew Marrinier, the team manager, and Sophie, the art director at Billabong.  There were a great team to work with.  Here are some of the lookbook shots used by Billabong.
