The Challenge

A photo shoot for a “fur” coat line in the rain.

What I Did

My friend Christopher occasionally models for brands and he approached me to shoot a “Dogtown in the mountains vibe” for SpiritHoods. SpiritHoods is “a brand dedicated to the celebration of life, and to the connection with yourself, the animal kingdom, and those around you.” They make faux-fur clothing and products with the specific goal of being a cruelty-free and fun-loving company and we wanted to capture some of that in the foothills of Three Rivers, CA. They also work with a lot of conservancy non-profits like Polar Bears International and Panthera, which is very much in my quiver of “everything is connected, so let’s protect it to protect ourselves”. Here is what we captured in that vein.
