CLIENT: Long Beach State University (LBSU)
CREATIVE DIRECTION: For Beach magazine, I needed to create a visual snapshot of the diversity of LBSU. I had about five days to set all this up. The idea was to recruit one faculty and one student from each of the eight colleges, plus Athletics, and then create a group portrait in one shot. I wanted each subject to look like their respective colleges; for example the Professor and Student from College of the Arts (COTA) needed to look like COTA, Et cetera. So I (loosely) worked with each subject on wardrobe ideas, to help them visually communicate their respective colleges. I also worked with the Theater department (on campus) to procure a stage and style it with props. The end result is the centerfold in the April 2018 Beach Magazine.
CREW: Photo Assistants, Faculty, Students, Theater Technicians
