Fine Magazine shoot, DEC 2013 Holiday issue

     Holiday lifestyle editorial shoot for Fine magazine located right here in north county San Diego, was a blast.  Fine magazine is available free, in San Diego, Orange County, and LA, so pick up a copy and check it out.  It was fun for me, as is often the case when I get to do lifestyle shoots, to be somebody I'm not for a day, meet interesting people, and call it 'work'.  I'm a boardshorts & flipflops kind of guy who wears airline pilot uniforms every day.  I have some sense of fashion but my wardrobe emphasizes function over style and is about as boring and one-dimensional as it gets.  Uncharacteristic of most models, I'm also as non-pretentious and non-materialistic as it gets.  I drive a 12 year old pick-up and don't believe in 'status-symbols'.  My status symbols are owning a backyard skate bowl and home-gym, and a 2 year old surfboard.  And a good dog.  Dude, all my time & money goes into my family and kids!  I used to own a really badass British motorbike but had to sell it to pay for skate-bowl repairs - major bummer.  At least I still fly jets.

              My co-talent was Caroline Amiguet, the photographer was Jonah Gilmore, the editor and stylist was Whitney Butler (from Fine magazine), and hair & make-up were by Julz Lujan and Marisol Nunez.  The location was the Kona Kai Resort & Marina on San Diego's Harbor island.
     Did I mention I have the coolest (real-life) wife ever, for encouraging me to go out and have fun on shoots like this one, knowing I always keep it professional?
