I've spent nearly twenty years getting to know Rick Hunter. It was only this year I felt I could write my own story about him. Above is the opening spread from the feature just published by Freehub Mag.

Launching WEST Skincare
Based on personal work I'd been sharing on instagram, WEST Skincare asked me to help with an overall look and feel for their newly launching brand. I worked closely with WEST over a six month period to build a deep pool of images articulating the spirit of the brand. I incorporated elements of my personal work I'd been making on road trips around the Western US--sometimes more magical thinking than traditional landscape representation. Over many conversations during wind battered camping trips in the desert we came up with a tone for for the non-product photography. When WEST finally had finished product to photograph I also jumped in and helped art direct and execute the photography. It is always nice working with people who want me to use the breadth of my skills in a project.
NYC Shoot for GIRO
I've worked with GIRO for the past 11years. It's great having a long relationship with a consistent team, and where everyone has a lot of trust in each other's work. This shoot came about because I was going to be in NYC for a post-production on an unrelated motion project, and I was able to add a couple days to my stay to produce this shoot. I hired local talent, and a local videographer, and I was able to deliver both still and motion assets to GIRO.
