Hi, my name is Thomas. I’m a half English half Italian photographer and videographer based in London. I was recently inspired to travel to California for the first time and drive up the coast from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Just like the Americans yearn to make the trip across the Atlantic and backpack across Europe, Europeans have (for 400+ years now) an obsession with the illusive American dream: The sweet life.

Armed with my camera and a few pairs of The Quiet Before sunglasses, I bought my first ever ticket to LAX with the promise of adventure, romance and beauty. It’s not surprising I felt a connection to California before I'd even been, I’ve been watching beautiful Hollywood films filled with beautiful Hollywood actors since I was old enough to look at a television.

As the plane started its descent over the Nevada desert, the first thing that struck me is how vast the Country is. There’s so much space! California alone is the twice the size of an average European country. The desert slowly turned to city and became greener as we approached the Pacific.
These are two reasons why the film industry is based in Los Angeles: 1) you have space and a variety of environments to choose from. The perfect location to film those early, epic Hollywood westerns... and, of course, 2) the beautiful light from the sun as it sets over the biggest expanse of water on our planet, also known as Magic Hour. I was lucky enough to be in Venice beach on my second day to experience such a sunset which lasted nearly an hour between the signature backdrop of the Californian lifeguard huts.
