Tom Morley.

TOM-1TOM-25Yoga teacher, masseuse, & leader of Global Tribe Retreats, Tom Morley, had me out to a gorgeous home in Malibu for a photoshoot last week. We were blessed with an out-of-the-ordinary, overcast day that shone a soft, muted light for us. I don’t often get the opportunity to shoot the male form, so this shoot was a welcome challenge in shape and line. Taking inspiration from Michalangelo’s statues, we worked toward the embodiment of those ancient gods. Tom is available for bookings in therapeutic massage, private yoga lessons, personal training, & luxury retreats HERE. xo

Viola introduced me to the design philosophy that is permaculture and I’m hooked. The most poetic permaculture lesson I learned was to keep a focus on the edges of things, as it is often in the space between, not in the things themselves, where new growth occurs.
