The Cabana Club
05 April, 2018
This series pays homage to Coral Casino Beach, a social club with an Olympic-sized pool on Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara. Since opening in 1937, the exclusive members' club has played host to countless events attended by the Hollywood elite - I wanted to capture that sophistication in a refreshing and fun way. Evoking 1960s resort lifestyle, I envisaged a fine-art series celebrating the Californian sunshine and hotel's art-deco design while transporting viewers to the poolside glamour of the past.
I enlisted the help of synchronised dance team, the Aqualillies, and we spent two days shooting in glorious weather with plenty of costume changes. I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture this iconic landmark and hope people enjoy the series as much as I did shooting it.
