CALIFORNIA ROADTRIP

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Luca Renaud, I am a 16 year old aspiring videographer from Montreal, Canada. This summer I went on a family roadtrip along California's Highway 1. I documented our trip through video with my camera, and put together this 4-minute short film.

DESERT DANCING

There's always something so calming about the desert. I love feeling the wind blow through my hair and kiss my cheeks.  Smelling the crisp earthy air as I watch the sky go from blue to pink to orange to purple. It's easy to find myself, arms outstretch, dancing with the wind.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA

I jump off the muni at the Embarcadero Metro Station and with a short walk I can get to the area on the Embarcadero I need to be. Once I reach the foot of Market Street, the magnificent 245- foot tall clock tower on top of a waterfront building, marks I have arrived to one of my favorite destinations, the historic San Francisco Ferry Building.

San Diego, CA

Summer is officially here and that means fun in the sun! One of my all-time favorite summer past times is spending time at the County Fair. What’s not to love!? Rides, games, concerts, animals, exhibits, festivals, and wacky foods that aren’t acceptable to eat any other time of the year. It is the perfect way to spend a summer day with so much to see and do you are bound to have a good time!

OFF ROUTE 66 : CALICO, CA

There's no argument that Calico is a real ghost town. Established in 1881, Calico produced $86 million in silver and $45 million in borax during its glory years. At its height, the town boasted a population of 1,200, 22 saloons, a "Chinatown," and a well-known red light district.

BIG SUR, CA

Although I’ve explored several California destinations throughout the last few years, one of my favorite spots is Big Sur. Located around 300 miles up the coast from Los Angeles, this idyllic, picturesque stretch of land is one of the Golden State’s biggest treasures.

OCEANSIDE, CA

Alaina and Todd are local residents of Oceanside. They love everything about their neighborhood, so they decided to get their photos taken exploring the area. And what better way to finished off the day, than with a beautiful San Diego sunset

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, CA

Rooftops, abandoned buildings, glorious lighting, fire escapes (complete with almost horribly gone moments with an all too clumsy friend), adventure and exploration at its finest—which you can confirm when, by day’s end, your already ripped boyfriend jeans are actually completely frayed to a point of no return.

REDONDO BEACH, CA

What happens when you put four photographers, their cameras and a bottle of wine on a sailboat? The Established California Team decided to head out on Saturday for a day out on the water in Redondo Beach. With help from South Bay Sailing, we were able to get out on the water, sit back and enjoy the wind in our sails.

GLAMIS, CA

It's rather surreal, being in the desert of south Eastern California. You could wander around the dunes for days and see little more than tire tracks in the sand. It's really hard not to get reflective, almost introspective, in this massive, empty space.

MT. SHASTA, CA

A few weeks back, I was hitting a... let's call it "mid-life" crisis.. if you will... and I needed out of LA. I have some really amazing friends who live in a great mountain town in Northern California: Mount Shasta.

NORTH PARK, CA

North Park has been a destination of its own for some time now. Its cultural diversity and trendiness has always provided a sort of gravity, drawing San Diegans in. Streets lined with art galleries, tasting rooms, specialty shops, and boutiques are crowded daily by people and pets, taking in the atmosphere and exploring the surrounding area.

JULIAN APPLE ORCHARDS

Living in San Diego, or rather anywhere in Southern California, it’s pretty easy to get used to the “endless summer” we have out here. It’s great! Almost never below 70, not many rainy or gloomy days and the ocean is never far from reach. But even with all this greatness we find ourselves longing for something a little different, especially when autumn rolls around. Leaves that change color, a crisp cool breeze on your face and the need to actually wear a sweater.

PASO ROBLES, CA

In honor of one of our favorite holidays, Halloween, we wanted to showcase something a little different.  This mysterious and chilling shoot, shot in the small central coast town of Paso Robles, is just that -- and we can't wait to share it with you.
