New food photography work from your homie Justin Sullivan. Fresh macarons from the unstoppable Bottega Louie downtown Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa announced that Occupy LA would be evicted from city hall at 12:01 AM today. I was on site from 11:50PM to 2:45AM and despite a huge police presence nobody was evicted from the park at city hall, and to my knowledge all of the protests remained peaceful. This is what I saw:
Today I got hired to light a shoot with Rob Dyrdek (Rob & Big, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory) at his warehouse skatepark/office/tree fort in downtown LA.
Markus Paulsen was the photographer, and we were working together creating some new images for the upcoming launch of a new eyewear line Rob’s doing.
It was such a blast to get to hang out and work at the Fantasy Factory all afternoon and make some bold, iconic images to help launch his latest venture.
There’s a foam pit for learning new tricks…or just throwing yourself off the balcony into. That’s a trick right? I stuck it.
They have this slogan blasted all over the place. Really inspirational to see a dude who came up from skateboarding with a fresh new Ferrari with that attitude. Make your own luck indeed.
Rob was a great guy to work with, and really worked hard with us to make sure everything looked great.
Here’s a 360 panorama I took from the middle of the joint: http://360.io/Mvh6gF
Be on the look out for the images when the brand launches soon!
I love my Yashica-A twin lens reflex medium format camera. I’m gonna be using this thing as much as I can this year.
I promised I’d eventually share some more photos from Hard Haunted Mansion shows I shot over Halloween weekend. Despite my ongoing tradition of not following through with promised blog posts, I’m actually going to do it 😉
Without further ado…
I had the good fortune of being invited to attend an exclusive party last night thrown by Tumblr and Logitech at the new Logitech Loft. It’s a penthouse on the 30th floor of the new Watermarke Tower in the South Park area of Downtown LA. The space was gorgeous, and the view was completely insane. Tumblr and Logitech were nice enough to have excellent catering, an open bar, and new Logitech TVs to play with. If you get a chance to attend any events here while Logitech is sharing the wealth, so to speak, I recommend that you do.
