Street Portraits: D

There are many back alleys in the garment district where everyone is is selling their goods probably without licenses. Whenever I am working in those areas I talk a walk to see if there is anyone that may be photographed. I met "D" playing his harmonica. He was playing what sounded like some of that old prison blues type of music. We talked for a bit and he showed me this crazy bump/growth he had on his head. I wanted my portrait to concentrate on his harmonica so I asked if he would keep his hat on for the portrait.

Street portraits: Larry

I met Larry out in the Broadway district and thought he had a cool old school look. Not too many people can pull off that type of leather hat. We didnt get to talk to much as he was on his way somewhere.

Ansel Adams: Los Angeles

I barely made it to the Ansel Adams: Los Angeles exhibit today. It was the last day and i couldn't miss it. Overworked, underweight and exhausted. The show was beautiful, L.A. looks nothing like that now.

I will be part of a group show with L.A Record magazine. If you love independent music and the artwork that goes into the magazine take some time to check it out. They have a great selection of books and a cafe to rest while you're out and about town. Pick up a book for your coffee table collection and take a look at the art!!!STORIES Bookstore

Street Portraits. David

I met David when I was on my way home. I had walked a bit to shoot and saw there was nothing going on. I had to get home to be with my family so i packed my gear and started my drive. I saw David standing in from of a smoke shop and his tattoos caught my attention. This is one of those situations when you have to be quick and be sure of what you're doing. I approached david and showed him a book of sample prints and he was cool with me taking pics of him. We talked for a bit and saw he was a looking around so that was my sign to leave.

Street Portraits: Ericka

During my rounds of work I met Ericka. Her look caught my attention right away. Like I always do I ask the person if they would be ok with me taking a picture of them. Her look was classic, it reminded me of something from the 30's.

Jake Allen x FUNAKI

I got to shoot Jake Allen. He is on tour in the U.S and so we took him to some locations that would give that Mexican L.A. vibe
