It takes a village. And some foam core for a backdrop. And a 4x floppy to block the direct sun. And a beautifully revived modernist house in Palos Verdes. And @hoooooov on a matthboard. And @hairbyadir using a 2×3 flag to give our subject’s hair a lift. And @karayoshimotobua (in the orange knit cap) crushing it on makeup. And @liebs123 making sure we didn’t get our cars towed. And @zacharybako holding one end of a tennis net. And @johnnytalay keeping all the files straight on the monitor. And @gooddogmedia shooting BTS video and attempting to stay out of the way. And @luvlouella giving invaluable advice. And @alishagore shooting the BTS stills, among other things. Seriously. Daylight shaped by a Mathews matthboard. And all of the above in the service of a cover for Vanity Fair Spain. @mariasharapova #mariasharapova @hasselblad_official @phaseonephoto @vanityfairspain

And the result…Nothing but net! Maria Sharapova on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair Spain. And nothing but daylight…which was killed on camera right by a 4x floppy and used as the main on camera left with the help of a Matthews matchboard. That white backdrop is a v-flat wedged against the garden wall. The net was supplied by @tortnt and delivered by Ben Borland. The daylight was managed by @hoooooov and @zacharybako. The BTS stills were shot by @alishagore. The BTS video was shot by @gooddogmedia. Hair was arranged, blown dry, and teased by @hairbyadir. Make up was applied and reapplied by @karayoshimotobua. Driving back and forth to the Ralph’s supermarket was by @liebs123. Providing invaluable help was @luvlouella. @mariasharapova #mariasharapova @hasselblad_official @phaseonephoto @vanityfairspain
