L. Shima is blowing up right now. After a cross-country road trip that had her shooting with photographers across the US, this Florida-based model has been blanketing the world wide web with awesomeness, and that makes us happy, indeed! Now we’re doing our part to bring the goodness of L. Shima to your browser.
In addition to Instagram and Tumblr, you may have seen Shima on Playboy TV, as well as modeling for various product lines (like Mad Gods) and look books.
We discovered Shima through the site and were thrilled to shoot her on her latest LA journey. She’s a great model: confident, sexy and inspiring and our shoot was a blast. There’s just that pesky whole country between us… why can’t she be just be local so we can shoot her all the time?
