It’s funny, our next issue is the “Surf” issue, and I thought I’d be pretty equipped to shoot anything that came up. I surf, I dig the culture, I still wear my OP cords. But what about shooting high-fashion looks for a Surf issue?… hmmmm, my brain fell out of my ears. After a few meetings with the editor, contributors and designers/stylists, somehow my strange ideas still got the green light to shoot.
Idea: Instead of shooting at a beach or in the water or just shooting bikinis, we would create an “ocean” to provide as a backdrop for the fancy clothes and model. Let’s just say this, I can guarantee you have not seen a “high-fashion” photo editorial like this one. Will you like it or not? You’re just gonna have to pick up the magazine and find out for yourself. Here are some test shots and behind the scenes stuff to give you an idea of what is going to be or not be awesome.
