  • A Day at the Beach
    very beautiful place Most of the time Dawn s Early Light A Day at the Beach Dawn Moonset and Fog In the late fifties and sixties it was the allure of California Beach Culture that drew people from all over the US to California The promise of sun sand surf freedom and a burgeoning economy were this brilliant siren song that caused us to eventually become the 7th largest economic entity in the world The State utilized the talent and passion of that large influx of people seeking golden shores and fair weather to build all manner of things People needed jobs so they set about designing and assembling the accoutrements of what would eventually affect the popular culture of the globe One of those funny little projects which was manufactured both in Oakland and Van Nuys was the Corvair The Euro styled little car was designed as the answer to the VW Beetle and Renault It soon disappeared into a sort of time warped oblivion as a mainstream effort Big block V8 muscle cars of the day took advantage of an abundance of cheap fuel and the need to haul families around in a little bigger vehicle and became the design direction to be followed Here is a great little piece on the Corvair by Jay Leno I find people like Jay one of the better and more enjoyable aspects of Californian popular culture Here is another by Chevrolet California has always set trends The Corvair was decades ahead of it s time And the fashion which has arisen as a result of surfing and our beach lifestyle quite frankly is stronger and more influential now than ever before Deep Magazine recently offered me the chance to do a swimwear shoot The theme was up to me My answer

  • A Day at the Beach
    connection to our ocean based culture here in California and is rooted in my genes and experiences acquired while running and founding a plethora of businesses as well as my current career as a commercial and editorial Photographer Writer and Film Maker This is the first in a series of blogs that will examine my home California land of the warmly toned sun rise and yes sun set She is struggling a bit more than other places right now So I thought that maybe a look from my perspective may be a good thing to proffer It is a very beautiful place Most of the time Dawn s Early Light A Day at the Beach Dawn Moonset and Fog In the late fifties and sixties it was the allure of California Beach Culture that drew people from all over the US to California The promise of sun sand surf freedom and a burgeoning economy were this brilliant siren song that caused us to eventually become the 7th largest economic entity in the world The State utilized the talent and passion of that large influx of people seeking golden shores and fair weather to build all manner of things People needed jobs so they set about designing and assembling the accoutrements of what would eventually affect the popular culture of the globe One of those funny little projects which was manufactured both in Oakland and Van Nuys was the Corvair The Euro styled little car was designed as the answer to the VW Beetle and Renault It soon disappeared into a sort of time warped oblivion as a mainstream effort Big block V8 muscle cars of the day took advantage of an abundance of cheap fuel and the need to haul families around in a little bigger vehicle and became the design direction to be followed Here is a great little piece on the Corvair by Jay Leno I find people like Jay one of the better and more enjoyable aspects of Californian popular culture Here is another by Chevrolet California has always set trends The Corvair was decades ahead of it s time And the fashion which has arisen as a result of surfing and our beach lifestyle quite frankly is stronger and more influential now than ever before Deep Magazine recently offered me the chance to do a swimwear shoot The theme was up to me My answer was to hearken back to what made our Fashion develop and endure our State grow and flourish and what today still offers a laundry list of assets that continue to lure the California Coast a rich and beautiful Ocean pretty girls and lots of laughter fun and our own very unique lifestyle A day at the beach is almost always pretty special I bet just reading this you will recall some of yours Seth Godin has this to say about being an exceptional brand For that is what California really is a brand Click on any of the images below to

  • Surfing is for Everybody
    raised my ire and in counterpoint also offered some common sense solutions to ocean pollution which our society tends to overlook But at the end of our interview it occurred to me that nothing pisses me off more than some functioning elite deciding who gets to use the beach or ocean and endeavors to regulate that for their own gain Whether it be more waves for themselves a fat money coffer or to sustain some useless Government job It sucks I hate it Surfing is for everyody So is the sea Learn about it Do something constructive Maybe just go ride a wave This link is to a reality show teaser that I worked on for Silent Crow about Betty B and some women who surf and love the ocean Seth Godin said something today in his blog that made me add it to this thread today It is right on the nose and can help you The following images are a few glimpses of surfing and the ocean shot this past week Click on any of them to toggle through as a slide show Everything in this blog was shot on the Canon 5D Mark 2 system Rincon Posted in Blog Prologue Waves Neo Creative 2 Responses to Surfing is for Everybody Eric S says January 11 2011 at 1 28 pm I think what pisses me off is not necessarily that the people that are making the decisions on ocean usage protection are elitists but that they are only occasional users of the resource without a true understanding of the dynamics of an ocean focused community They target areas that look good but don t necessarily get to the bottom of the matter If they really wanted to make a difference they would target the major culprits Run
