Last month I spent a week on Kauai shooting the Stone Fox Swim Summer 2018 campaign. I have been working with Chelsea of Stone Fox since 2011. We hit it off after our first shoot and have been pretty much inseparable ever since. It's amazing to be able to travel, grow and create with her. We've come a long way over the years and she is someone who I feel so blessed to have found in this industry.
I was so happy to find out we were going to be shooting on Kauai, it holds a special place in my heart. Kauai is the first place I had ever traveled to by myself, and it's also where I had my first travel job back in 2012. I was really excited to come back and revisit it with fresh eyes and more experience. The theme for this shoot was Vintage Hawaii, warm tones and a grainy 70s feel. We spent three days scouting the island, devouring poke, chasing the sun and dodging the rain. When the crew and our gorgeous model Victoria Germyn arrived, the stars aligned and we were blessed with two shoot days of amazing weather, lots of laughter and good vibes.
Attached are some images from our scouting adventures and a little behind the scenes look at what goes into making magic with all these weirdos.
