Last weekend, right in between Friday the 13th and Halloween week, The Globe and Tower Theaters located in the center of Downtown Los Angeles held the inaugural Cloak & Dagger: Dusk Till Dawn Festival.

Cloak & Dagger is a weekly members-only underground dance event in Hollywood curated by Adam Bravin, aka DJ Adam 12 of She Wants Revenge.  Cloak & Dagger is an immersive experience made for those who appreciate the “darker” aesthetics of music, nightlife and fashion in LA.  Adam spins a wide range of noir music genres — from goth/industrial mainstays Depeche Mode and NIN, to hip hop groups like Wu Tang Clan and Mobb Deep, and especially to the late great Prince, for whom Bravin was a direct musical protegé and friend.

Dusk Till Dawn Festival was a natural extension of that exclusive Hollywood club night, this time opened up to the public in order to gather together an eclectic mix of both local and nationally touring musicians, new and old alike.

Two nights.  Two downtown music venues.  One dark, dancey festival.

Night One included sets by headliners The Jesus And Marychain, TR/ST,  Com Truise, Health, Drab Majesty, Chasms, H09909 and many more that I couldn’t get to shoot.

Night Two included sets by She Wants Revenge, Poptone, The Soft Moon, Cold Cave, KMFDM, Ohgr, Zombi, and Ssleeperhold

Paris Spring Fashion Editorial

Paris Spring Fashion Editorial Model Eiffel Tower Tour

For my birthday this year, I treated myself to a little mini vacation to Paris, the City of Lights!

While there, I had contacted some models to shoot some Paris Springtime fashion and glamour editorials.

Meet Agata, a Polish-born model who was in town shopping for new agencies for Western European representation, looking for updated photos to match!  We shot two looks, one with Parisian striped shirt/skirt combo, and one with a green Spring blouse.  Also, peep that Coco Chanel handbag for added Parisian flare!

Parisian Redhead Fashion + Boudoir

Redhead Asian Spring Fashion Model

I was excited to connect with Caroline while in France, a lovely petite Parisienne with fiery red hair and soft Asian features.

She brought a lovely Spring dress with her for some street fashion looks on the steps of Montmartre, considered a mini city on the hill in the heart of Paris.  Then we went inside the studio and shot some intimate window-lit boudoir photography.

Le Boudoir Noir – Paris

Boudoir Noir Black And White Lingerie Model

During a birthday weekend vacation in Paris, I had the pleasure of shooting Emilie, a stunning brunette with classic features.  We only had a short window of time to rendezvous for a shoot, so I invited her to come shoot in my hotel room overlooking the Eiffel Tower, for some early evening noir-style boudoir photos!

Bon anniversaire à moi !

So, there’s a music event every Sunday at the Echo nightclub here in Los Angeles, called Part Time Punks.

It’s a weekly dance night for fans of post-punk, darkwave, synthwave, and dreampop, with theme nights from Siouxsie and the Banshees to Pulp Night and the ever-popular Smiths/Morrissey Night.  But every other week or so, they showcase a lineup of live music acts, either native to LA or on tour from nearby or abroad.

This week’s PTP headlined SOFT METALS, an LA-turned-Portland synthwave duo with ethereal dreamscape vibes and catchy, pulsating beats.

Emily Addison Evening Boudoir/Fine Art Nude

Emily Addison Boudoir Lingerie Nude

I was fortunate to have glamour/boudoir model Emily Addison in town from New York.  We had been trying to connect for several years to do a shoot together, but never crossed paths.  Finally, we were able to put together a quick evening boudoir lingerie photoshoot at her hotel in Beverly Hills.

As you can see from the resulting photos, it was well worth the wait.
