Oceano Dunes with Raylynn Epley

Recently I did a shoot with my friend Raylynn during golden hour at the Oceano Dunes. It was a beautiful sunset, and we walked away with some great images. We wanted to change it up and do some landscape style images, but with a person in them to add a sense of scale. Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot.


Low Fog in San Luis Obispo

Back in April, I went up to the top of Cuesta Ridge in San Luis Obispo with some friends to shoot sunset. There was low fog over the city, and above the fog was a thick layer of clouds. It wasn't looking like there was going to be a very good sunset, but it was beautiful regardless. Out of nowhere, there was a little bit of a clearing in the sky, and right as the sun hit the horizon, the sky become very vibrant and ended up being one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. 

Below on the left is a photo from that gorgeous sunset, and on the right is a composite of the same photo. I've been practicing more and more in Photoshop recently and am stoked with how this composite image turned out!


Low Fog in Malibu

A couple weeks ago, the coast of Malibu was completely covered in coastal fog for a few days. The first day I went, I was disappointed because I was looking forward to hanging out at the beach, but I realized that if I went high enough in the mountains, I could find a really cool viewpoint from above the fog. 

Heading north on Highway 1, I went up Deer creek road which I had gone up a few times previously. I started losing hope as I was heading up the mountain until I finally saw an opening in the fog. I found a pull off on the side of the road, hopped out of my car, and turned around to one of the craziest views I have ever seen. Talk about being left speechless. The fog covered the ocean for as far as I could see, and the sun was just starting to drop below the horizon. I'm sure most of you can agree with me when I say fog is incredibly annoying, especially when driving through it, but wow, it truly is a beautiful sight from above.

Until next time,
