St. Vincent at The Music Box at Fonda 10.18.2011

St. Vincent came around last week in support of her 3rd studio album, and one of my favorite releases of 2011, "Strange Mercy". Those around me know how big of a crush I have on Annie Clark aka St. Vincent so I was very excited to get approved (last minute) to shoot the show.  The night was amazing and I was pleased with the photos I got.
Hope you like them too!

WU LYF at The Echo 07.26.2011

This post is WAY WAY late... but that's okay.
As I was making some more room on my hard drive I came across these shots I took of WU LYF back in July. This show was definitely one of my favorite shows of 2011. Just picture The Echo in Echo Park jam packed, sweaty bodies dancing around, and a massive smile on my face intermittently covered by my camera each time I took a shot.

WU LYF's album is "Go Tell Fire to the Mountain" is one of my favorite releases of 2011 and really excited to see them in November at The Troubadour and I highly recommend checking them out if they come to a venue near you.

YACHT at The Echo Plex!

YACHT, comprised of Jonah Bechtolt and Claire Evans, performed at The Echo Plex last Friday night as part of the Filter Magazine's Culture Collide Festival.  They went on shortly after midnight, but you couldn't tell by how energized the crowd was as YACHT ripped through a 45 minute set. It was really fun to see YACHT evolve from just Jona and his laptop to a full band featuring Claire and great video visuals projected in the background. One thing didn't change... and that's Jona's energy.  Make sure to check out YACHT if they ever come around... you will not be disappointed.
In the meanwhile check out the photos from last Friday below!

Dum Dum Girls at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa

In my opinion there aren't enough girl groups out there that rock like Dum Dum Girls.
These gals dressed all in black, took the stage, and rocked a good 45 minute set. As always with the small club shows the lighting was a little iffy, but I think i did alright... Tell me what you think!

BQH Headshots

A couple weeks ago my friend Brighton asked me to shoot some head shots for her upcoming acting auditions and today we finally got them done. We went down to the Arts District in DTLA and found some cool spots to shoot. You can't really tell, but the photos where Brighton is wearing a mustard colored shirt is the same location where they shot scenes from the movie Drive with that Ryan Gosling character... not sure if you know who he is.
Here are some of my favorites photos from today!
Special thanks goes to The Senator for helping us out!
If you need some head shots hit me up and I can schedule you in! 626-290-7351
