Lately Loving: Photographer Gray Malin

Positano Town, La Dolce Vita Collection

I'm starting a new series on the blog called Lately Loving…I'm sure you can guess what it might be about! About 3 weeks ago I discovered Gray Malin's stunningly unique photographs while trolling one of my favorite sale sites, One Kings Lane.  If you aren't a member, I suggest joining ASAP.

Praianom La Dolce Vita Collection

I was instantly sucked into his pictures!  The colors & locations...I HAD TO SEE MORE. I headed over to his website & went through every single collection he has.   Within 5 minutes of seeing his photos I knew I had to purchase one (or eventually 4) for our house.  

Bondi Beach, A La Plage collection

While I LOVED all the photos on his website, price wise I decided to be practical & pick a photo that was on sale. Insert, Bondi Beach.  The arial photos are what drew me in to Gray's art in the first place because I had never seen beach photos look like this.  After a LONG debate with myself, I ordered the Bondi Beach photo (above).  A week later it arrived & within minutes, I became OBSESSED. 

Bondi Beach Swimmers, A La Plage Collection

While the sale at One Kings Lane had ended, I did a search on their site & to my surprise, Gray's photos were still being sold & STILL ARE here (Be sure to scroll through all the pages as not all his photos come up at first)! I took this as a sign & ordered a 2nd photo, the Bondi Beach Swimmers.  Now I had land & water. Initially, I thought I'd frame these individually, but then it came to me. Frame them together to create one large piece of art. I haven't framed them yet, but I'm so excited to see how they will turn out.

Swan Ice Bridge, Antartica the White Continent Collection

Like all obsessed people, I couldn't get enough of Gray Malin. So what does one do? Find them on Instagram. After scrolling through his  account & seeing how ridiculously adorable he was, I learned something awesome about Gray (in my head we are friends & on a first name basis). He truly appreciates his fans & is constantly offering deals & special promotions.  

Cheerio, Up and Away Collection

There were promotions for free framing, free shipping, free phone wallpaper download (yes, I might have gotten one…told you, obsessed) etc. His promotions usually only last for a few days at a time, but they make it SO tempting to buy more photos.  And then he offered a sale on his new Bermuda Collection

Bermuda Tropical Birds, Bermuda Collection

And like the obsessed woman I am, insert the purchase of 2 more photos. His Bermuda Collection only consists of 4 photos, but they were so vibrant & fun, I thought they would make a perfect addition to my new office at work. 

Bermuda Flamings, Bermuda Collection

I mean, was I looking for an excuse to buy more photos? Perhaps. BUT they were on sale & I really was in the market for some wall decor for my office. I was able to get 2 photos for less than the price of one normally, so a win for me! Also a win for you? They are STILL on sale here but only till midnight tonight! Unlike the Bondi beach photos, I plan on framing them separately. I can't wait to see how they turn out!

There are plenty more photos of Gray's that I would LOVE to have, but instead of buying them, I will just share a few more with you.
