BedRocktoberfest 2014

Bedrocktoberfest 2014 Head Wound City Jordan Blilie by Los Angeles concert photographer Justin Gill

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.

Malibu Beach Swimwear/Glamour Nude Photoshoot

Malibu beach swimsuit blonde model photoshoot

I had the opportunity to shoot the gorgeous blonde Lori for an early morning shoot on a private beach in Malibu.  Waking up before dawn was totally worth the images we made.

We shot three looks, with increasing levels of undress.  Lori really brought it with the poses and connection to the camera.

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!

Meet Stasya, a lovely young model originally from Russia.

She did a great job shooting some bikini swimwear photos with me on some gorgeous secluded Malibu beaches last week!  Although the April beach air was a little brisk, living in Los Angeles still has its advantages :)
