'Paradise Found' - Issa de' Mar Summer 2017 Campaign, Maldives

There's nothing better than working with friends.
A beautiful thing happened in the Maldives when a girl's trip turned into a spontaneous campaign shoot ... clear blue water and bikinis are life ... and to be able to create images in tropical destinations alongside my best friends is my life dream realized. :)

It's not every day you come across a squad quite like the Reef squad. Talented surfers, rad creatives, downright sweet human beings. As they continue to stay true to their "Just Passing Through" mantra, I was lucky enough to document their nomadic pass through the North Shore a couple of weeks ago . . .

Here are some stand-out moments as we surfed/swam/ran/hiked/ate/jumped/tanned our way across the 7-mile miracle . . .

On this day, we grabbed a couple of locals (Mahina, Amber, + team rider Billy) and showed the Reef squad a typical day in the life here which of course included a cageless shark dive with Islandview Hawai'i, food and lots of it, a drive to the east side, and a beautiful paddle to Chinaman's Hat . . .

To wrap up our week of adventuring, we did an all-day cruise with the team riders and a couple of local girls -- all which ended with a bon fire and brews on the beach . . .

It'll be a little while before I'm reunited with this crew, but the memories we shared are timeless and again, being able to capture them with my camera was a real treat.

P.S. So much love and prayers for Evan G. + his family, and a huge congrats to Billy for an unreal performance at Pe'ahi yesterday!
