Beija and Simone - our first shoot of 2019!

Much more to come from the three of us. We’ve all made a pact to keep the content coming! Definitely one of those spontaneous, go with the flow type shoots that ended up perfectly working out.

It was a lightly overcast day which resulted in the natural softbox-like natural lighting, and in the general area not only did we use the beautiful and clean white walls but also found some colored gates that matched Simone’s outfit PERFECTLY. An incredible start to the year, I’m pretty proud of these and also very proud of Simone for her significant growth since our last shoot!!

Beija at Venice Beach

During the shoot for the Fila x Snkr Inc Mindbreaker, Beija also wore a dope Nike fit that we did a shoot with at the famous Venice Beach basketball courts - my first time being and shooting there. The colors she put together in her fit really complimented well with the tones of the courts, making this shoot very pleasing to shoot and post process.

This shoot also encouraged me to do some brush retouches, which I rarely do, and I remembered a while back that I met another photographer who consistently did brush retouches and used a tablet as his main form of editing. What this further led to was my very first purchase of a tablet! I'm excited to see where that will take my photography editing. 

Beija and I got along really well throughout the day and I'm happy to say that this day's collaboration is definitely the start of a great friendship! Stay tuned for more to come.
