What a night … or rather two!!! I was invited to photograph the VIP party given by Riviera Magazine and La Casa del Camino hotel here in Laguna Beach, to introduce La Casa’s 10 unique and brand-new ‘surf suites’. What an incredible project!! Southern Cal’s hottest action sports companies: Billabong, Roxy, Rip Curl, etnies, Quiksilver, L*Space and Lost International, along with Riviera Mag and Glaceau, teamed with the finest interior designers to create these absolutely amazing one-of-a-kind suites. Check it out at http://www.casacamino.com.
An absolutely brilliant concept by Chris Keller, one of the hotel owners. Who WOULDN’T want to stay in one of these rooms?
And, special kudos to my long-time friend and interior designer extraordinaire, Charm Logan, who brilliantly designed and executed the L*Space suite. It’s sexy, romantic, and glamorous.
So, in addition to meeting industry bigwigs Bob McKnight, Joel Cooper and Pierre Andre Senizergues, among others, I had the extreme pleasure of meeting the absolutely adorable skateboard champion Ryan Sheckler. Then, I got to come back the next night and photograph the second party for the community of Laguna Beach.
Here’s Ryan in the etnies room with hotel principal Chris and manager Amy.
And here’s Ryan after he signed the wall above the headboard, which was created from squares of leather that etnies shoes are made from!
Remarkable attention to detail is seen in every room.
