Five Branches University, Santa Cruz

I had the pleasure of shooting the new promotional photos for Five Branches University. We spent all day in Santa Cruz going through our extensive shot list for the day’s worth of work. All the students and staff were very amiable and open to being in the photos, which says a lot for the Santa Cruz culture in general. The campus is literally two blocks from the beach. I had a lot of fun shooting the student-models and getting to know them and their passion for holistic medicine.
