Nymphs of Toro Canyon

This past weekend I had my last photoshoot of school planned - and obviously my model bailed. Even after contacting close to 10 models, not one could commit (for various reasons.)
So instead, I kept the clothes I had gotten from my stylist, and figured I'd step in.

It was cold, pouring rain, muddy, and nothing to even close to what I wanted.
Luckily, I had Danielle and Dylan with me - and before I threw in the towel, I thought we could try it with a cell phone. So we did, and it worked, and that was that. My last photoshoot of photo school - on a cell phone. Ironic?

Here are a few of my favorites!

Thanks to Danielle and Dylan for helping me make this happen. I love.

Do The Hustle!

I did a photoshoot this last weekend with who else... Danielle Sepanik.
It's almost a joke how much we use each other - not sure who I'll find to inspire me after we graduate (which is literally in one and a half weeks...)
She was generous enough to let me use her camera and underwater housing for these; and pull her connections so we could use the pool up at the Montecito Campus - which is closed to almost everyone else! Freezing water, warm air, panino, so much laughing... THE BEST.

Here are a few images I loved the most.

"Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I'm sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just run out
I'm cold as cold as cold can be

Bright Eyes

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to shoot with this up and coming model.
Her name is Taylor Camp, and she's thirteen. (!!!)
Really basic, with a supposed 70's vibe - they turned out better for her portfolio than mine. Nonetheless, it was a great experience!

Only two more weeks of school - can you dig it?
