We are thrilled to have Gray Malin as a guest on the podcast today. Gray is an amazing fine art photographer and author. He is best known for holding a camera out of a helicopter and shooting the world’s most exotic beach locations all over the world. You get a bird’s eye view of the colorful umbrellas, towels and sunbathing bodies.
His first book entitled “BEACHES”, which came out in 2016, showcases this iconic beach photography. It is a gorgeous coffee table book.
Gray has photographed locations such as Saint-Tropez, France, Capris, Italy, Australia, Rio de Janeiro, Antarctica, Dubai and many more.
His newest book entitled “ITALY” is available for pre-order on Amazon . A Signed Collectors Edition is available for pre-order as well on his website graymalin.com. . It features the breathtaking beaches of the Italian coastline. If you can’t hop on a plane to visit these exotic locations, you can live vicariously through the stunning photography in these books.
Gray has really become a “lifestyle” brand. You can you purchase the incredible photography, beach towels, iphone cases, pouches, wallpaper, trays and so much more right from the website. H e recently partnered with Splendid, a clothing brand, where his images have been translated onto wearable items.
