He arranged the shoot in January, 1964, after filmmaker Bruce Brown showed him the film"s opening scene.
He positioned Brown in the foreground with his surfboard on his head and the film"s two stars between Brown and the setting sun.
He had learned this technique at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he took night classes, graduating later that year. He converted the photo into an abstract design by reducing each color to a single tone and giving each image a single, hard edge.
