Have you noticed some of the cool new photography on our website and on social media? Thats the work of Jeff Scott of Scott Bonnie Photo. Jeff reached out to me a few months ago because he was looking to add more product oriented model shots to his body of work. It's always something I've wanted to do, but really had no way to manage it, so I was pretty stoked when we were able to come up with a plan that worked for both of us. I wanted the shots to feel more real life and not too posed, so we decided against using models. I asked Morgan Sliff, a local surfer I'm a fan of, if she'd be willing to play model for a day. At the time Morgan was just a couple weeks away from hitting her personal goal of 366 consecutive days of surfing, but we had met last year at a local art show after connecting through Instagram. She agreed and even wrangled her brother Mike into being a second model. That they could joke around like, well, family probably added a bonus layer of authenticity to the shoot that I loved. They were both really great sports as we shot throughout El Porto and squeezed as much as we could into a few hours. I grabbed these snapshots while they were at work, but you can check out some of the final shots below and on the front page slideshow. You'll also find some on individual product pages here on the site, as well as on social media over the next few weeks. Be sure to connect on Twitter and Facebook to catch them. And thanks again to Morgan, Mike and Jeff for making this happen!
