Emily Nathan for Ritz-Carlton Summer 2012
Emily Nathan photographs coastal fashion for the Summer 2012 issue of Ritz-Carlton Magazine. The ten-page spread was inspired by the area's earth and sea tones. The shoot took place at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California. Half Moon Bay featured a wide expanse of settings including manicured lawns, rugged cliffs, and the hotel's own room side fire pits.
As a Bay Area local, Nathan says she has "an obsession with the way light falls." She's also an avid surfer; the model posed with her surfboard in one photograph. Nathan calls one of the locations, nearby San Gregorio, their "hero beach." She says, "There is so much to see there-massive pieces of driftwood, a fast-moving river, sea birds, and even sea caves that I was able to scout with the production's state park ranger."
The summer 2012 issue of Ritz-Carlton Magazine is out now.
