Sophie and Riley as Surfer Girls

The concept for this shoot was a day in the life of two Californian surfer girls.  The intention was to bring the kind of vibe you might find in pics posted on their facebook wall.
From chilling out at the bar, messing about in the ocean and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

I was fortunate to have a dedicated behind the scenes stills and video photographer at the shoot, so I will make a separate blog post explaining the planning process, more on the inspiration, mood boards, styling, lighting and execution.

Models:  Sophie Adams and Riley Henderson
Assistants:  Jack Thomas, Jonathan Sousa and Cristen Tashae Dill
Behind the Scenes:  Bryant Richards
