Dove Shore shoots Hailey Clauson for GQ
August 9, 2017
Los Angeles photographer Dove Shore recently shot the cover of GQ South Africa with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s cover model, Hailey Clauson.
The shoot took place at the Casitas Maraika resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Having never been there before, Dove and Hailey were both very excited about the location and it ended up acting as the inspiration for the shoot.
Dove and Hailey had worked together several times before, which was beneficial to creating an intimate environment despite having a large crew on set. The beach is one of Dove’s favorite places to shoot and the sand also doubles as one of his favorite wardrobe elements. In this sort of environment, it’s almost a necessity to have the skin covered in sand to bring a certain level of authenticity to the images, which is a consistent theme of Dove’s work. Although Hailey is wearing next to nothing in the cover image, which many would consider sexy, there is still a raw and intimate moment captured by her strong eye contact with the camera.
