Steele Captures the Best Moments of Surf City USA’s Beach Life

South Dakota Tourism

For his most recent collaboration, Kevin Steele worked with ad agency The Atkins Group and Huntington Beach, CA Tourism to create a series of beautiful imagery, capturing the joyous lifestyle of its inhabitants for their 2017 campaign. With years of creating cinematic shots focused on authenticity and living in the moment, Kevin was the perfect man for the job.  Creative Director, James Howe explains his choice:

“I was looking for someone who had both an understanding of Huntington Beach and an ability to capture those moments that tell a story. Kevin delivered that and more on the shoot, creating images that give you a sense of the lifestyle of HB while creating an emotional connection to it. And he is also a nice guy and fun to work with.”

Portraying family surf sessions and sunset beach bonfires in his own, unique way, Kevin truly captures what makes life so enjoyable in the original Surf City USA.
