A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO KNOWS EXACTLY HOW TO CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF SUMMER

Can you believe that summer has arrived? No one captures the essence of summer fun better than photographer Gray Malin, who is most notable for his bird’s eye views of the world’s most beautiful beaches from around the world. You might already be familiar with his work but it’s worth revisiting as a way to kick off the 2016 summer season. And if you are not familiar with his work then allow me to introduce you to his photography by sharing a few of of my favorite Gray Malin images.

I might as well take this one step further and use this as an opportunity to let you peek inside Gray Malin’s very own Los Angeles home. His fun loving attitude is definitely reflected in his own abode. Take a look around…notice how he incorporates his own artwork into his home. It might not be everyone’s style, but you can’t deny that fact that it looks like this guy knows how to have fun!

When I shoot a series, it always starts with one thought: Is this something I would hang in my own home?   –Grey Malin

The room features two Gray Malin photographs: the one above the dresser and the one near the lamp (shown in detail below).

Apparently, Stella has found one of the most comfortable spots in her home.

    Such a nice way to start my morning. All the bright color is such a pick-me-up. I tend to love neutrals and solids and would never decorate like Gray Malin, but I really loved a peek inside his home. And I love how his photos are perfectly displayed in his home. Beautiful!

    • Reviving Charm says:

      I tend to gravitate toward neutrals myself. A neutral backdrop is ideal for someone like me who likes to tinker too much. Once the paint is dry, I’m already planning to redo it! I can appreciate color but, like you, couldn’t live with it day in and day out. But I do love his photography!

    What a lovely way to start summer. His talent truly transports me to the beach he’s captured, even if for only a minute or two.
