Lifestyle flavored Commercial Photography… I’ve been a huge fan of the Sebastopol, California based organic beverage brand Guayaki Yerba Mate for years. I started as a die hard customer and from there our relationship grew organically…just like their mate. I’d snap photos during my landscape photography adventures or when location scouting for my destination weddings with a bottle of “Enlighten Mint” or “Pure Endurance” (now called Tangerine Terere) which is my favorite. Guayaki’s social media coordinator found my photos on Instagram and started sharing them on their social media channels. As both of our businesses have grown, so has our relationship. What makes me the most proud to be an “Amigo De Guayaki” (as they call it) is their socially-conscious efforts to be stewards of the land. Leveraging their Market-Driven Restoration business model they are embarking on a mission to restore 200,000 acres of South American Atlantic Rainforest and create 1,000 living wage jobs by 2020. They’re also Fair Trade and Organic Certified. Of course this all works beautifully for them (and us) because their products are absolutely delicious and uplifting. Trade a cup of mate for coffee one day and see what I mean. This is a collection of images that I’ve shot for, or granted licensed to Guayaki to use for their marketing efforts. #ComeToLife Here’s a gallery of some iPhone images shared on our Instagram channels (@aframeforward + @guayaki) over the years…
