I recently teamed up with Pixels.com, the online lifestyle marketplace, to shoot assets for their website and social media outlets. In this sunny, Americana shoot, it was important to capture candid moments of the models in Paradise Cove Beach in Malibu. Our vision was to have the models connect naturally so we could capture the group as friends enjoying the Southern California summertime. Pixels wanted to show off their rounded beach towels while the group caught some rays, enjoyed a beach bonfire and the surf.
If you aren’t familiar with Pixels, they have revolutionized the way lifestyle goods, artwork, and apparel are bought and sold around the world. Local artist can sell their products while Pixels essentially take on production and shipping, freeing up the artist to focus on being creative. It truly is a marketplace where things come to life and this spirit translated nicely into the energy of the photo shoot.
This project required a pretty big production team, crew, talent, video team and stylist. I love collaborating on such a large job and am always meeting talented people along the way. I was also able to work with my friend, Anthony Pazos, the amazing make up artist. Trish Suhr was the creative director who has a explosive brain filled with contagious energy. A few of the models were Jesse Spence, Nicole Pedra, Heath Haden and Kaite Miller. On the production side, Santina Giuliano, Cortney Taylor Herron, Tawny Gestuvo and Tony Perez Make sure to follow this inspiring lifestyle brand on Instagram!
