Pepperdine University is a world-class institution nestled on the coast of Southern California. Students in Pepperdine's undergraduate and graduate programs may have sweeping ocean views, but it doesn't stop them from studying for the many rigors of their academic courses.
This photo shoot took place on campus at Pepperdine's Malibu campus and at various Malibu landmarks.
Great business schools need great stock photography (for print and digital promo) and Pepperdine’s Graziadio Business School is preparing students for greatness in business administration, finance, and more across many sectors. The Graziadio marketing team was in need of a fresh set of photos that showcase real students in authentic classroom settings at one of the business school facilities, so we put together a day of shooting. Check out what came out!
Chateau Fleur de Roques is a beautiful 16th century chateau in the heart of French wine country in Saint-Émilion, France. We stayed there on a recent extended road trip through Germany and France, and were shown wonderful hospitality from their staff and inspiration from the surrounding countryside. With so many beautiful stone details, winding passageways, and comfy corners built for sitting and reading, we almost didn’t want to leave (but we eventually had to keep exploring wine country).
I'm working on a website for the Malibu Community Labor Exchange and if you've met me recently, you know I'll talk all day about the power of beautiful photography. The quality of the images on your website, social media account, or print piece can make the difference between a good marketing plan and a great one. So when I went to work on the MCLE website, one of the first things I did was shoot some stock images. Stay tuned for the new website reveal!
Not only do students at Pepperdine University get to live in the lap of luxury on a pristine Malibu beachfront campus. The school also provides the option to live in "campus" housing a short drive away on an idyllic ranch setting, complete with cows, goats, a ferris wheel, cabins, and more hiking trails than one person can conquer in a semester. The Housing staff wanted interior photos mostly, but these are some of my favorite detail "outtakes."
I don't just take pictures! There's more on my facebook page.
