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.
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.

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.
Not only do we receive awesome photo editorials weekly, but this will be our first in a series of video contributions for the site. Australia’s Nadz Banaag is a director and he envisioned three different stories all told in video form. Here is the first installment, “She Was a Trash Silhouette”.
Accompanied with film stills photographed by Teegan Pack, I’m waiting on the edge of my seat for the next in the series.

I 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.

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.
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.
