Will Haynes BTS: Fire Treasure

It’s here! It’s out! Will Haynes new mixtape “The Rise” is now out on Spotify and on his soundcloud, and available for free! I had so much fun shooting the behind the scene photos for Will’s new music video, for his track “Fire Treasure.” In total, we shot at four different locations.This was my second time working with this crew (Subplot), and I gotta say, each time there’s always lots of good energy, and everyone vibes so well together that getting the job done always feels so effortless. The thing I love most about Will is that he’s a very calm individual that always radiates nothing but love and positivity.

Check out the music video for “Fire Treasure” here !!!! Video directed by the multi-talented Trent Barboza.

All photos shot on a Sony Alpha a7rm2 with an 85mm lens and a 24-105mm.

Location #1: Topanga State Park

Time of Arrival: Around 3:30 PM

We arrived at Topanga State Park around the mid afternoon, but by the time we started shooting, it was a little after five. The moon was so lovely that night, and the shot of Will on this hill was amazing.

[Photos from this day were just shot on an iPhone 6s]

Location #2: El Matador State Beach, Malibu, CA

Time of arrival: About 9:00 A.M.

I forget how beautiful El Matador is, especially on a clear, sunny day. The waves were very strong, however, so I think this location was the most grueling for Will. But all creatives will sacrifice at one point in time for the sake of art, so Will persisted and pulled through. And boy, did we get some amazing shots.

 Location #3: Marina Park, Ventura, CA

Time of Arrival: About 3 PM

If you’re not trying to beach it up at the regular spots closer to L.A., Ventura, CA is another option. The pier and park here in Marina Park is so relaxing and reminds me of lazy vacation days I used to spend with my parents during the summer. I LOVE the ship they have here at the park. And the fact that the clouds were so picturesque this day, made for even better, cinematic photos.

Location #4: Abandoned Farm House, Palmdale, CA

Time of Arrival: 1 PM

I’ve always had mixed feelings about Palmdale. It’s so far from everything and there’s not much out there, but if you’re ever in the mood for desert/rural photos, hiking at places like the Devil’s Punch Bowl, or stopping at Charlie Brown’s farms for delectable rarities, check it out sometime. I always enjoy adventuring in rural places. Urban exploration is hard to do sometimes when you’re mostly out in the city. I loved the textures and rustic feel of this place.
