mari






mari and i were introduced by our mutual friend chris. mari is one of the sweetest people i have had the pleasure to be around. she's extremely positive, genuine, caring, and easy to talk to. all great qualities in a photo subject.

what's with the horse, you ask? well, not only does marissa surf competitively, she also competes in the rodeo arena!

i think the portraits with the horse are too far removed from surfing to work with sirens as they are, but maybe they'll work when accompanied by marissa's words. for now, i am pretty stoked on the first portrait - i think it's successful in showing the softer side of surfing i've been trying to capture and i like that it is a more formal portrait than some others i have taken.
