We kicked off March with a bang. Amira wanted to create a few dope lifestyle looks that really captured the essence of the outfits. The purpose of most of Amira’s shoots are to create eye-catching, editorial-style photos that really bring her blog content to life. If you’ve kept up with Amira, you know she has been living in LA the last 5 years, so she’s really been enjoying shooting around some of Austin’s most popular locations. For this shoot, Amira and Chris went to South Congress. They shot at Kendra Scott, South Congress Cafe, and Hotel Saint Cecilia.
CAM X MNML.LA
Cameruhn is insanely creative. The amount of passion, vision, and creativity he puts into each of his shoots is unmatched. For this particular shoot, Cam and Chris went to the domain in Austin to bring this MNML outfit to life. MNML is a clothing company based out of LA that Cam works with frequently. For this shoot he is featuring the MNML wool coat, and paired it with these trousers and a pair of the new Skechers D’lites. Cam wanted to showcase this particular shoe in a unique, versatile way that ultimately got him recognized by Skechers and featured on their official page. (Check that out, here!)
Marifer X Sa-Ten
Model Marifer and SWAI photographer Chris collaborated on this shoot and killed it. Marifer is in the midst of building her portfolio, so really wanted more portraits that evoked emotion and curiosity. Chris came up with the location, Sa-Ten, a local hip coffee shop here in Austin- while Marifer styled her looks. It was a great combination because the end result is amazing. The shots are both interesting and eye-catching.
TARA X CHRIS X VIDEO SPEC
Something that SWAI wants to get more into is VIDEO. We love video and the way that it allures an audience, provokes emotion, and creates impressions. Tara and Chris worked on this beautiful spec video and it turned out AMAZING. It was Tara’s vision behind this shoot- she wanted a different take on your standard city girl fashion shoot. She paired this summery skirt with a beautiful salmon top to give it more of a casual vibe. In the video, you’ll see Tara walking down the busy street with her skirt flowing. There is a second model as well- but you never see his face. At the end Tara is curled up around his leg, which ultimately made the video seem more candid and leaves the viewer wondering who the man is (and what he looks like). This is just the beginning, and SWAI will be back with many more videos.
CAM X SAVANNAH X FOREIGN RICHES
These are stills from a scene in a video ad SWAI is working on for LA-based brand Foreign Riches. The brand’s message is “let us not be rich by what we possess, but by what we set forth into the world.” We’re working on a very special story line that involves models Savannah and Cam playing the roles of two young desirous young lovers. Stay tuned for final product!
