We recently jetted off to Todos Santos to shoot our look book for Spring/Summer 2017 (which is going to blow all of your minds, btw) and we absolutely fell in love with the magical town at the tip of the Baja. The weather was perfect- not too hot, not too cold, and the waves were fantastic. We had two weeks to tromp around, location scout, and take tons of photos. Neither of us are models, but when we are checking locations for the right light we often become the subjects. That way, we know exactly what time to return with models to capture that magic hour. It's a tough job, but someones gotta do it.
1. The main square in Todos Santos was the place of sunset dreams. Old Ford trucks, dappled light through palm trees, and a pedestrian friendly walk way. Monica hates having her picture taken, but if you can't see her grumbly face and the focus is on the sunset, she gets over it.
2. Our trip to the Baja was inspired by the book 'The Teachings of Don Juan' by Carlos Castaneda. Imagine a trippy peyote fueled soul searching book by the infamous Mexican author. Psychedelic imagery aside, we read that book and all we could think about was taking pictures in the desert with a bunch of cacti and earthy coloured sand dunes. Here I am, day one in my fave tropical outfit - a
and sarong du jour - testing the light en route to the surf beach, and thrilled to be exploring the Baja!
