I had the chance to create some advertising imagery for the new product called HERE, PayPal's new mobile processor, in San Francisco last year that's just rolling out. The farmer's market themed shoot fit so perfectly for the city of San Francisco since they're all over which helped us create real life merchant transactions. Enjoy the set!
Earlier this year I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot the 2018 Campaign for Peace Out Skincare. What was really exciting was they're a newer company under Sephora which gave us a lot of freedom to set the foundation of visual imagery for the brand so we had a lot of room to play around with the creative. I had a lot of fun with the amazing crew and talented creatives at Peace Out Skincare. Shot on location in Los Angeles with the amazing model Lexi from Newmark Models.
Here's a little Behind-the-Scenes snap from the shoot. Check more BTS imagery on my instagram @theadamdillon
For the second time working with Sam Blacky we decided to shoot in studio in DTLA. What I love about working with her is the energy she brings to the shoot that makes my job so easy; to put on some great music and she does her thing. It's hard to get a bad photograph of her and it's always a pleasure to work together.
Something that I've been wanting to do for a while now is approach a nonprofit to offer up my service as a photographer as a donation to the fund. I came into contact with the amazing team at Lonely Whale to talk about what we could do together for a creative project. We came up with the idea of a Vanity Fair style portrait booth during an event that they had in San Francisco in collaboration with Ocean Elders and the wonderful people that came through the booth were of the highest regards. Here are a few on the portraits that happened throughout the evening.
I had the opportunity to spend two weeks traveling around Japan with my best buddy Lucas and it was a place that I had no experience with before. The only way I can sum up Tokyo is by this little writing I did while there.
"Packed into a city like matches in a box. The salary man heading home after a long days work mixed by yakitori and sake. Chefs preparing the days catch for the wandering people just outside the door. Motorists whizzing by the crosswalk to make their deliveries. What I expected of Japan was not what I found. The city full of 39 million people made a beautiful stage for the solidarity of the people I witnessed in their own bubble. Alone in their day to wander free in their minds. I wondered what story they were playing out. By themselves they were my Tokyo wallflowers."
