Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting a high fashion model in downtown Los Angeles. My model was Tala, a tall leggy Russian with luxuriously long hair and olive complexion, and a flair for elegant style.
I had the pleasure to shoot BedRocktoberfest, the second annual music and magic festival held at Bedrock, a recording and rehearsal studio in LA’s Echo Park.
What drew my interest was the reunion of Head Wound City, the hardcore supergroup composed of members Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jordan and Cody from The Blood Brothers, and Justin and Gabe from The Locust. Also of note were stage performances from some accomplished magicians, some of which have performed on Late Night programs.
While this block party festival may only be in its second year, I could tell that this is exactly the kind of thing that will become a huge huge yearly event in the near future.
So I had another photoshoot last week in Malibu, this time on the gorgeous El Matador State Beach, which is well-known for its steep bluffs and rocky formations, not to mention gorgeous golden hour lighting. We did two looks, with an emphasis on combining a commercial and high fashion appeal.
I had the pleasure to shoot Grammy-winning Latin singer Ana Barbara at Hollywood’s famed Dolby Theater. Ana’s glamor and glitz was well-received at the same gorgeous theater where the Oscars are held every year. She owned the entire stage in elaborate outfits, backed by dancers and even a full mariachi!
Last weekend I had the pleasure to shoot The Green Children, an acoustic folk duo at Hotel Cafe, a classy jazz club in the heart of Hollywood.
This place was perfect setting for them, as the intimate vibe allowed singer Milla’s voice to warm up the entire room. It’s no wonder they are making some pretty big waves and gaining a wide audience, both in the US and in Europe.
