My good friend and fellow photographer Matthew Stacey recently challenged me to a bi-weekly photo battle. I got to pick the subject matter for the first one, and decided on dessert. Been thinking about playing with popsicles for a little while and this is what I came up with to kick it off. Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
Just came across an editorial series by NY based photographer Pablo Ravazzani for Contributor Magazine of images of Los Angeles looking up. I felt like I could do better. So I jumped over to my instagram archive and grabbed a few things. Let me know what you think.
I’m thrilled to announce that after a great deal of time, planning and work, I’ve launched the first version of my online print store. I’m pleased to be working with Photoshelter, who have been working hard in the photo industry for a very long time to make things better.
My first featured gallery consists of images that I’ve made on the go over the past year. It will be updated regularly, and all photos will be limited to 10 prints in each size run. Once they are gone, they are gone.
This year I’ve branched out creatively in a few new directions. I’ve started painting again, made the occasional sculpture, and started dabbling in furniture design. But one of the most rewarding and interesting developments is a connection to TV and Music Videos.
A close friend and collaborator of mine, Greg Lang is a talented production designer here in Los Angeles. I had production designed one music video previously, and Greg has been kind enough to bring me on his crew for quite a few projects over the past months.
I don’t have a reel, but I thought it might be fun to share some of the videos I’ve worked on.
So, without further ado, here they are in what I recall to be chronological order:
I first became aware of Anthony Lister’s work last year while traveling around the US. I took the month off to go explore and see what there was to be seen. I spent a lot of time in New York photographing street art and there was one particular mural in Williamsburg that stood out.
The more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Turns out I wasn’t the only one.
In the time since, Lister has become one of the artists in the street community that has been getting a lot of traction, and rightfully so. Fresh perspective and a style that shows a great personal voice. He’s definitely an artist that I keep my eye on, and I always get excited when his work pops up in LA where I live. He’s even had work commissioned by The Standard hotels in Hollywood and New York, and had a wonderful solo show that I attended recently at THIS Los Angeles Gallery.
Here’s a recent mural around my neighborhood downtown that I liked
My friend Bobby over at The Fox is Black has a fun slideshow of a Lister show from 2008 at New Image gallery that’s fun too:
Quit Your Sobbing and Call me in the Afternoon
Here are a couple of videos that are worth a look as well.Thanks Vimeo, and BOOOOOOOM for inspiring the post.
