Lake Nacimiento Shoot

Anyone who is familiar with Paso Robles, California probably knows two basic things about it: they make great wine in Paso, and it gets really, really hot there.  Unfortunately me and the team got a a big dose of the heat during our shoot last week.  Clocking in at about 105 degrees, it was a warm one.  Everyone was a good sport and we kept the water super cold in ice and we hung out by the lake as much as possible.  

 

Thanks so much to everyone involved!

Christina Diaz in Shell Beach

Model Christina Diaz is not only lovely, but the California surfer girl is also quite the academic. An aerospace engineering student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, she clearly has a bright future ahead of her.  We shot at Margo Dodd Tide Pools in Shell Beach, California on a beautiful summer afternoon. Rebecca Means was a fantastic assistant and the day was lots of fun.  Chosing to shoot at high tide left all parties soaked as we waded thigh-high through the water, trying to keep the gear dry.  Note to self: check the tide schedule before booking a beach shoot!

 

Avila Beach Test Shoot, Part II

More images!  

I need to pick up the film this week (I shot with my Hasselblad and a Holga during the shoot), and then I will post some selections from the batch whenever I get it scanned.  

Thanks again to the team! I couldn't have done this without you!
