OUR STORY

 
 

Find Your California started as an Instagram by Photographer / Artist & Owner Nico Guilis in 2012. Born and raised in Southern California, with the avid love of surf culture and endearing, accented inflections and terminology to match; Nico moved to NYC where she continued living a California-inspired lifestyle: following the sun, spending winters in Puerto shooting surf and skate photography as well as Hollywood "It Girls" in Los Angeles. Nico began showcasing influential females while integrating her love of environmental imagery and old cars.  And thus, an aesthetic and mantra was born. Guilis began journaling these surf trips and adventures for Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Foam, and Vans Girls amongst others. As the popularity of her Instagram account grew, Nico decided to launch the online website to showcase these travels and the vision that is Find Your California. Hear from this New York transplant on why braking up can be the catalyst to greatness, finding the best surf spots, the power of Instagram and becoming an inadvertent new wave feminist. Check out Harpers Bazaar's write up on Nico and the launch of Find Your California. From the online, Nico has grown Find Your California into a small creative agency, allowing her and her team to curate the same aesthetic and vibe for other brands and offer the following services:
