Thayer Allyson Gowdy
Thayer calls Bolinas home, a hippy surf town on the cliffs over the Pacific in Norcal,. When not in Bolinas at her studio & home named Camp Wilder, she is photographing the west coast vibe, building outdoor showers and dining with friends in her apple orchard in Bolinas. All the while with her sidekicks. A scruffy terrier & dorkie; Scout and Wilder. She shoots and directs for the likes of Apple, Target, and Levis. Her work is inspired by sincerity and playfulness. Capturing authenticity, beauty and happiness in the everyday. A Connecticut native who moved West, she finds inspiration in the western landscape in the far reaches of Northern California. Seeking out hot springs and pink fog at sunset. Her lifestyle work celebrates the real stories of those that find themselves in front of her lens. Her energy when shooting is always open, fun & caring. Boundless when she has a shot list as long as her arm, quiet when on a farm, filming crafters in their studios in Vancouver. Adaptable and always filled with easy going charm. Her bags are rarely unpacked. She is often on her way to Cuba, Mexico or Big Sur; where she spends her free time. Thayer is a local to SF, LA and NY.
