This is Rachel. The coolest and most stylish woman I know, holding elegance with every outfit. At the same time, she’s the most outrageous and wild soul you will ever meet.

After travelling the world with her, experiencing diverse cultures with her, making lifelong memories with her and now living with her here in paradise, I have discovered that she is not only my best friend, but also my best girl, and my ultimate muse.

Over the weekend we drove Rachel’s’ vintage Volkswagen around Byron and Bangalow and shot “GIRL”. A mini-series I shot on 35mm film in the early hours of the day, chasing the sun around town as it rose.

I believe that “GIRL” portrays her raw beauty, power, strength and soul. I’ve tried to capture the innocence of summer and the euphoric feeling of freedom.
