Lifestyle photographer Jeff Stockwell was recently hired to shoot for a dream client of his: the iconic shoe brand, Vans. They went off book and used no Art Director on set, giving Jeff virtually full creative control. He did all the location scouting himself, produced, and even cast a couple friends- a set of twins. The only rule: real people, no models.

Unlike automotive shoots “where they have such a specific and exact angle” Jeff was able to fully follow his creative inspiration for this lifestyle shoot. It was just him, his “models”, and his 5D...roaming the streets of LA making trouble!

“It was really cool to work for a brand that takes risks and lets you be creative”, said Jeff when we asked him about this gig.
