Inspired by: Gray Malin

I’ve been a fan of Gray Malin from the time he was selling his work from a tent at an LA Farmer’s Market. It’s been thrilling for me to see how his career has evolved and soared since those early days. From books and products and collaborations to multiple collections, he continues to inspire me as a photographer. 

But Gray is also a master of taking his art and turning it into a brand. He’s a genius at marketing himself and I admire how he has diligently worked to get his photography into decor shops, blogs, publications -- and ultimately, into homes across the world.

His success should not just be attributed to the creative ways in which he captures nature -- most famously while perilously hanging out of a helicopter for his stunning aerial beach photos. Much credit must be given to how he continues to develop creative ways to repurpose his photography for home goods and products. Check out the many products and collaborations below, and tell me, what products would you want to see from my prints?

For a kids & baby collection with Cloth & Co, his art is taken even further through the creation of the most adorable textile prints inspired by his Parker Palm Springs photography collection. 

...perhaps for future grandchildren??
