Video: “The Lost World”

 

 

Through an abandoned waterpark just outside of Vegas, we shot our last editorial. I’m so excited to release the video along with a few outtakes from the shoot.

Band Crush : The 1975

975267cdfe752a8a60200b8f5e222aa4

Every now and again a band comes along that throws you for a loop. It’s not always the usual genre you’re used to, but somehow you are drawn into this world of listening to all of their albums and watching all of their videos.  This brings me to Manchester based band, The 1975. While they are more of a”current alternative” indie rock band than a 90s grunge redux, I still happen to absolutely love the style and imagery of the group itself.  In particular their video for the track “Robbers” has enthralled me like no other video has in quite a while.

Weekend Video Playlist

tumblr_m0pkbqCXA61qhw4wvo1_500ph: Cass Bird

I thought a good visual and audio post would serve as a perfect element to this Saturday. In a few hours I’m going to excercise my photographic muscle with some music thrown in for good measure. So here are some videos that are both from current music times and some oldies to satisfy your grunge music obsession. Happy Weekend indeed.

Style From Your Closet Editorial #3: Jaimee

jaimee_5I first shot Jaimee for the “Kids in America” editorial about a year ago. We knew that we wanted to shoot her again for this project. So here she is in the third installment of the ‘Style From Your Closet” series. She is born and raised in Venice, CA and we took an afternoon and evening in dogtown to take some photos in and around Jaimee’s environment. Check out the video we shot that gives you a little bit more insight into her influences and inspirations.

Lookbook Love: UNIF Spring 2013

1

I look forward to the new UNIF lookbooks every season. It’s almost like clockwork. In particular this season really made my nostalgic flame burn even brighter. Shot by Ben Cope, the colorful open knit sweaters, holographic sneakers, and the signature UNIF knits are really something to die for. It’s shoots like this that make me never want to leave the West Coast.

Throwback Thursday: “Hype!” Documentary

Hype_987870371

In 1996 a documentary called Hype! was released that profiled the rise of the music scene in the Pacific Northwest, particularly in the late 80s/ early 90s. It was because of this documentary that much of my interest grew with this scene. Many times I would have given anything to be a teenager from Seattle in the those decades. This documentary discusses the birth of the scene and how it really was for much of the creatives behind the movement. From graphic designers, music critics, and photographers, it really gives a new perspective to the “Seattle Sound”. Thankfully I found the full film on YouTube so please watch it as it’s a foundation on how the evolution has continued into today.

“Style From Your Closet” Editorial #2: Jessica

jessica_1

For the second in our “Style From Your Closet” installment we profiled Jessica Reyes. I worked with her a few years ago and I’ve always loved her carefree sense of style with a bit of a “streetwear grunge” edge. Cody styled her own favorite pieces for this twist on our editorial series. Our last “Style From Your Closet” editorial and video was from our summer trip to Utah so it’s great to be back on our home turf of Los Angeles. It’s great to take a look into personal style and explore what every day style means to each individual.

Here’s Jessica’s story…

Happy Birthday Kurt Cobain!

url-1

Here is a quick post for the morning to commemorate Kurt Cobain’s birthday today. Even though he has been gone for almost 19 years it seems like yesterday. Nirvana never stopped becoming an inspiration to me and it’s probably the reason that I’m sitting here writing this to you right now.

90s Girl Crush: Rose McGowan

-1

The other day I was watching “Scream” with Cody and he was mentioning his complete and utter obsession with Rose McGowan. In the back of my mind I wanted to do another exploration of her truly awesome 90s cult girl status, and this put the spark back into my brain. I did a post on her years ago here from one of my favorite cult classics, The Doom Generation. A must see on your indie film list if you haven’t seen it already.

Net0iiile

From her classic roles as Courtney Shane in “Jawbreaker”, Tatum in “Scream”, and Amy Blue in “The Doom Generation” who doesn’t want to be Rose McGowan?
