One of the true perks of my work is meeting incredible people like Devon DeMint. She’s a Leucadia local, absolute shredder, skateboarder, inspirational writer and rad mom to two little beach bums. You’d be hard pushed to meet someone with as much stoke and bigger smile than this little lady – plus, she’s got talent to match. As one of my favorite surfers to photograph, I was stoked to head to Swamis a few days ago
Known as @mermaidsightings on instagram, Devon has a follow worthy page and wonderful website www.taleofamermaid.com. She’s also the driving force behind this incredible ladies skate group www.sheskateshere.com (@sheskateshere). If you don’t already, you should go and follow her RIGHT NOW! Keep your eyes peeled for this mermaid at her local spot – North Reef Beacons.
It’s been a pretty wintery winter here in San Diego which has firmly put the brakes on a fair few days of surf photography. Instead of despairing at the dirty water, driving rain and blown out conditions I’ve taken some time to meet up and shoot with the awesome lady shredder behind an Encinitas emerging apparel company – Her Waves.
Femininity with an adventurous edge. Surf inspired clothing designed for women by women “
HER WAVES is a female run, female driven company that fusions together a love of surfing, skateboarding and community friendships – forget the butt shots, social stigmas and high end fashion that so often engulfs the world of women’s board sports . If you ‘love to hate’ major surf labels, struggle to find your niche when it comes to wardrobe choices and want something a little sassy and unique – look no further than HER WAVES. Their line of tees and tanks (coming soon) are printed on eco-conscious, luxuriously soft materials and come in a variety of beautiful designs and colors that will compliment every outfit in your closet. Working closely with other female artists, skaters, surfers and women who are passionate about their sport and lifestyle – I’m excited to see this awesome little company grow over the coming months.
As a photographer and small business owner I understand that high quality, professional images for your company (no matter how big or small) is at the heart of great branding and advertising for your product. I spent some time the past week with Jennifer from HER WAVES learning about her brand, her love of surfing/skateboarding and the passions that drive her company. She’s an incredible and talented visionary and I am super excited to work with her in creating content for her website and social pages!
Go grab yourself an awesome tee over at www.herwaves.com and support your fellow female shredders! They post awesome and inspiring stuff over on their instagram account too @herwavesco
