Hailing from Eindhoven, Netherlands, Jolijn Snijders is a portrait and fashion photographer with a youthful and rebellious style to her work. Having shot for the likes of Calvin Klein , Adidas, Rolling Stone Italy and Dazed & Confused, Jolijn is a veteran in this industry and has re-introduced the analogue aesthetic to the forefront of fashion photography.

DAVID GRAY & creating a visual language for Finisterre

1h 27m · Published 21 Nov 23:53

My guest for this Episode is David Gray who is the Head of Creative for Finisterre, a pioneering outdoor brand inspired by a love of the ocean and anchored in exceptional product. We take a deep dive into David's humble roots as a young and ambitious photographer and graphic designer who swapped the big city life for coastal living, where he made his mark as chief creative for Finisterre. Since joining the team in 2006, the brand has matured into a leading cold water surf and adventure brand with strong core values of sustainability and community. It was their shooting campaigns of vagabond coastal living and surf adventure photos that really attracted me to the brand and to David's own personal photographic style. I really enjoyed our chat and there are lots of great pieces of advice for photographers, graphic designers and anyone looking to build their own brand. Hope you enjoy!
