Jeff Lipsky’s Malia Jones portrait one of Outside mag’s top-13 photos ever

In a post on the magazine’s blog this past Saturday, Outside creative director Hannah McCaughey lists Jeff Lipsky’s portrait of Malia Jones (below, from the June 2008 issue) as one of the top-13 photos ever to appear in the magazine.

“This shot wasn’t going to happen at all at first,” McCaughey writes. “It was the end of a long–but great–day of shooting beautiful set ups along a Malibu beach with various bikinis. Malia + Malibu + nice day–how could you miss? Jeff had called the shoot over, and the sun had pretty much set so it seemed “we had it in the can,” but as everyone was packing up, something told Jeff there was one more shot to be had. I think this picture turned out to be so vulnerable and lovely because of that warm feeling you have at the end of a fun day.”

Also on McCaughey’s short list: two portraits of Lance Armstrong, one by Anton Corbijn and another by Robert Maxwell; Kelly Slater by Jake Chessum; and Laird Hamilton with his daughter by Peggy Sirota. For the complete list, go here.
