There is something so special about a young family with their lives just beginning. Everything is so big and new. I had the privilege of documenting the beginning of this beautiful young families journey.

Surfer Seriezzzzz Trois

luke (1 of 1)


Our friend Luke has a rad style of surfing. Not sure if it is because he is goofy or because he has this rad old school style. Sold, nothing to prove, just at complete peace.

Couches

Somewhere (1 of 1)-2


Somewhere (1 of 2)


Not too comfortable looking but i was obsessed with their texture. The horrible thing is that I would never wish someone to sit on either of these couches. So they are left waiting, once the centerpiece of a family's home, now abandoned in the wilderness. Thought they deserved some glory :)

Stephanie (1 of 2)



Steve and Stephanie are two locals that catch what you will be eating in 90% of the Restaurants in the Santa Barbara County that sell fish. Your favorite Sushi restaurant that serves Uni... yah Stephanie totally DIVED for that yesterday.

Steve is like Santa Barbara's local "Deadliest Catch" Crab fisherman. His works with one deckhand, 3 day trips, totally hard core.

It was a pleasure shooting these dynamic people for one of the raddest local Magazines, Dining & Destinations. So next time you come to Santa Barbara pay homage to these hard working, dedicated fishermen and women and enjoy some of our local Sea Food Restaurants.

Swimwear is hot and exciting right now. So I created a "fake" Swimwear Editorial/Lifestyle Lookbook. Here is my favorite shot of the whole day so far.

So myself, a few friends and some amazing local girls/models went to Lizards Mouth a sand stone heaven in Santa Barbara. I personally love this spot.
I can only hope to get some gigs out of this!!! More pictures to come!

1966 Mustang - Payton Darrow by Cristi Silva Photography  (6 of 10)




Last weekend I did a pretty rad photo shoot for my Brother. He wanted to enter the KLOS Heels and Wheels contest. Turns out his Girlfriends daughter modeled for Roxy and Gap.... so we set out to kick some KLOS ass. Payton rocked it and we created a classy yet sexy enough vibe to remain competitive. We used the classic car that our parents rode off on their honeymoon in 45 years ago, a 1966 Ford Mustang that was given to my Brother for his Birthday.

I love how they turned out! Payton is so fun and I can not wait to work with her again! I will keep y'all posted to who the winner is.
