Since before I first started modeling I was really into Young and Reckless clothing and the type of style of clothes they make. It has a really young, fresh and bad ass feel to it that I think a lot of youth can relate to, me being no exception. We took advantage of the hot Summer Sun one day to show off some outfits that Kelly Dunn had put together. We originally had this idea to let her style the project because we could see the inner stylist in her just waiting for the opportunity to put together someone else’s outfit for a shoot.
For the first couple outfits we went to the coast of Palos Verdes, CA because it is surrounded by beautiful tree, house and waters to give it the ultimate California feel. We walked down the hill to the water and additionally took some more under a really cool stairway. The second location we shot at was in the Downtown area of San Pedro, CA in this really cool looking area by the court house. This spot was a bit trickier to shoot at because there was a lot of people walking by and here I was just trying to get into character.
I really enjoyed the spots we chose to shoot this project because it all had such a fresh feeling. Downtown San Pedro has a lot of really cool buildings and areas that remind you a lot of the early days when this city was flouring with activity. All in all this was one of my favorite shoots and I look forward to another shoot like this one. Let me know what you guys thought about the outfits and if you have any ideas on locations like these.
