  1. Earlier this month I shot portraits and a studio tour with the talented Sage Vaughn. He was a seriously cool guy and even had coffee and red velvet cupcakes waiting for us. It’s always so refleshing to meet artist without inflated egos who actually make amazing art too.

  2. Last month I had the privilege of shooting the legendary graffiti artist RISK in his studio while he worked on the panels for the Heal The Bay House. I wanted to post up some of the photos I really liked that didn’t make in into the article. He was a seriously awesome dude and I feel honored to have been given a great shooting opportunity.

  9. Luke Chueh is one of the coolest artist I’ve met in a long time. I got the chance to meet and photograph him for the LAWeekly. His work is amazing and he is seriously down to earth…so refreshing.
