My new photo studio in L.A.
Posted on 29 September 2010
A lot has happened since August. I found a sweet new studio loft space to work in. I also moved (with the help of my awesome friends!) to a new apartment which is less than 10 minutes to the studio. A short, freeway-less commute like that in Los Angeles is pretty amazing. So I’m very happy with both arrangements.
The studio is in an industrial area in Lincoln Heights near the train tracks, just a quick hop over to Chinatown and Little Tokyo for lunch. And it’s literally a couple of blocks to Home Depot, score! I share the working space with some very cool studio mates, photographers Christopher Dibble and Dave Tada, art director Rich Rainbolt and a super sweet doggy named Stella.
This here is my office — I wish I could keep it that gloriously empty but now it’s chock full of light modifiers, grip equipment, art/photo books and boxes of backup discs (aka “all the ‘ugly’ things that my girlfriend is ecstatic about not having at the apartment anymore”). It’s now also home to a magnificent thrift store painting of Robert Redford that was given to me by actor Jonathan Woodward. (You have to see it to believe it.) The Sundance Kid gives me my mojo.
This is the main shooting area:
This is the construction area:
And this is the hallway to the studio:
Though I tend to do a fair amount of location shoots, I am thrilled to have a dedicated studio to work out of too. So if you wanna schedule a shoot with me or even just take a tour of the new space, just say the word:
St-st-studio! Oh oh!
