The Art of Having Fun

Gray's Musts: The Shorty Awards

Hi Everyone, HAPPY FRIDAY! I'm spending the weekend with Veuve Clicquot in Deer Valley, and I'll definitely be sharing away on all of the fun. Speaking of sharing on Instagram, it turns out that the academy has taken notice of my Instagram feed.. yes, The Real Time Academy, and I have been nominated for a Shorty Award in the Instagrammer of the Year category! To learn more about The Shorty Awards, look no further than right here. The Shorty Awards acknowledge that social media can change the world, create new stars and ignite global movements. As an avid participator and consumer of social media, I couldn't agree more and am truly honored to be nominated.   Upon learning that I was, I took a deep dive into my feed and have put together a collection of some of my most popular posts, as well as a few of my favorites just for fun! Thank you in advance for all of you out there who like my posts, it's always appreciated and if you'd like to help vote on the Shorty Awards, please do. 

THE MOST LIKES‍

Coming it at 8.4K  - My live video of the lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center. This was a total bucket list moment, and I loved getting to share it with my followers on Instagram.

2nd MOST LIKES

Gray Malin with Reese Witherspoon - Shortys Awards Nominee

I mean. I'm with Reese Witherspoon! I love this photo, and I love her. I am in complete agreement with the 8.3K likes on this photo. Better yet, though - THIS - boomerang video of the two of us doing the 'Bend and Snap' at her opening of Draper James flagship store in Dallas will forever be an all time favorite of mine.

MOST LIKED CHEERS 

My boo and I have been taking the "cheers pics" for years. It is such a fun way to capture a celebratory moment. This one from our friend's wedding in a rustic chic setting, perfectly suited for a cheers... Gray Malin Instagram - Shortys Awards Nominee

..as well as this recent one from Wategos Beach in Australia.

FAVORITE SKI AERIAL

Gray Malin Instagram - Shortys Awards Nominee One of the best parts of Instagram is that as a photographer, I not only get to share moments from my life but I also get to share my work in a very approachable and accessible way. Aspen Skiers Vertical is one of my most popular Aerial Ski prints as well as from the first mountain aerial shoot I ever did.

FAVORITE BEACH AERIAL

Gray Malin Instagram - Shortys Awards NomineeFullSizeRender (47) I remember taking this shot in Bora Bora and knowing that it was going to be a hit. I absolutely am in love with the color of the water, the singular swimmer in her pink suit, and the pure bliss of it all. It doesn't surprise in the least that 7.2K people agree with me.

FAVORITE BTS & TRAVEL GUIDE MOMENT

Starting with another video, I shared this #tbt of these 'behind the scenes' moments on my Far Far Away series shoot. If you love llamas, you'll love it.  I try to capture behind the scenes video on all of my shoots because sometimes you really need to show people how it's done, so they will believe it..haha! I also love getting to share travels tips, like this City Guide - London post. Gray Malin Instagram - Shortys Awards Nominee And, there you have it! I could go on and on, but I'll stop here and encourage you all to follow along @graymalin if you don't already, that is and also ask that you vote for me, too! I think that is definitely something to 'HEART.' Also, be sure to check out all of the other nominees, as well as see all of the other categories like Actor, Actress, TV Shows, and so much more that the Shorty Awards celebrate! xx GM Lifestyle-banners2
