Kick Preview from Clara Alcott on Vimeo.

my dear friend clara alcott just finished shooting 'kick' - a short sci fi melodrama on two women who fear technology. clara wrote, directed + starred in this film. i love her stylistic instinct - so it's wonderful to see her vision come to life. my complaint? that i didn't have the opportunity to collaborate with her on this one. can't wait to see kick in its entirety. happy editing clara - hurry up now!

{inspiration} *childhood

i enjoyed reading a little on liv's childhood story so decided to post these few shots. we were care takers of 'shelter island' for the 1st 4 years of my life. this 16 acre island off the coast of british columbia was the most picturesque atmosphere to wake up to everyday, i'll probably spend the rest of my years trying to recapture the natural beauty of my early years. ah peace.


{art} *kayla

a few weeks back stacy + i took the afternoon to work with lovely model kayla strother to experiment with some concepts we've been scheming up. kayla was such a beautiful subject for this series. some of my styling inspirations were pulled from virgin suicides, hitchcock, david lynch.. as always stacy worked her mastery by selecting the most honest + captivating moments with just the right perspective.
