"The XS brand, at its essence, is about stepping outside our comfort zones and engaging in experiences with like minded people who help us do more together than we could ever do alone. Our aim is to go out into the world, not to conquer it, but to add value to it in ways that generate the lives we want to live."

Authenticity is key for a forward facing social  approach. Hence, we develop relationships  and hire talent with the laser focus to execute  our mission through authentic story telling.

The look and feel for XS photography and video

revolves around four central themes:

 

1. A documentary/photojournalistic aesthetic

2. Movement

3. An insiders perspective

4. Elevated, cinematic/magazine level image quality

All imagery is primarily made up of candid moments captured while people are being truly authentic in their space. So for example, instead of hiring models to pretend like they are friends, we connect with an actual group of friends whenever possible. We shoot with them in their own environment, doing things they would normally do. Such as surfing, free diving or building a bonfire. In order to achieve the often elusive insider's perspective, we shoot with people we already know and/or have developed real relationships with. Also, investing the time required with new people to gain their trust in order to enter and document their worlds.
