The great thing about this shoot was it was one of the first times lately where I wanted to create my own spin on a brand that I really looked up to. For a long time I've always wanted to shoot something for Levi's but I didn't want to make an image to send them that was probably like everything that they already get in the mail. I wanted an image that was more about a lifestyle and who the woman was the wore the pair of jeans. She's an adventurer who loves the quiet moments alone wandering in an unknown landscape but full of contentment. The first image in this series was the image for me that really captured what this embodied for me and it also being shot on film helped me to slow down during the shoot and really become more aware and intentional in what I was creating that day. I think as artists we lose the sense of focused and in tune thinking while the camera is in our hands because we are shooting to fast to get as much as we can. And slowing the process of taking/creating a photograph is something that I strive to get towards on each project as of lately. I hope you enjoy the images as much as I wandering around the hills making them.
