I shot this set with Lauren one afternoon at a beach in Palos Verdes
. the temperature was 95 Degrees and the humidity was at%40. It got so hot my strobe stopped fire-ring and the shoot continued in harsh noon sun.
I spent a Sunday afternoon shooting with Yoyo. We shot on a secret beach I like to shoot at. There is a really nice Beach break; the Local surfers in the area call it super bowls. Also, the surfers can be very territorial when strangers are around. I have witnessed many fights, car tiers getting slashed, and car windows bashed in. Its safe to say its a locals only spot. Here are a few of the images from that afternoon.
Rachel Wu is from Wunder model MGMT and is a friend. We have shot many times and have shot editorials for a few different magazines. This shoot was a "sunday-funday" shoot. I decided to turn this shoot into an art project. She is a vibrant person and she reminds me of summer. She was the inspiration for the bright colors.
