78 Cali-Cool Photo Shoots

From Venice Beach to the Canyons, California Photography is Hot

— June 9, 2011 — Fashion
There is something special about California photography that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. History has seen men and women move West in search of gold, fame, fortune and a better life. This collection of California photography represents the idealism and hope associated with the mystical West Coast sanctuary of the United States.

As we move through the California photography oeuvre, we travel from the sweet surf beach sides of Huntington Beach to the modern metropolis oasis of San Francisco, these snaps highlight California at its most diverse and compelling.

Some of the subjects in this collection include venerable photographers RJ Shaughnessy and David Black, while others feature shots of massive California mansions and Cali-cool hipster roadtrips. Each shot brings us closer to the understanding the world's fantasy-like obsession with the most populous state in the U.S.
