The art of the personal project is a crucial element to let potential buyers and creatives see how you think creatively. Here’s a glimpse of one project we have in the works, titled “Workplace”. You really don’t need to travel that far to find the right subjects to bring an idea to life. Do some serious research, then knock on a few doors with a friendly smile and you’d be surprised how many willing participants will agree to the idea. Then the project might just snowball as in our case – we’re starting to lose count of our subjects. We simply love environmental portraiture. Images with a narrative. Characters’s that make you want to engage and ask questions. This project is ongoing for us and centre’s itself largely around our neighborhood in downtown San Francisco. A little sample below – we’ll continue to showcase more in small doses.

Feels like we’ve been living out of state for most of the last few months. Having multiple trips back and forwards between San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas has seen us continually chasing the sunshine and warm weather of late summer. No complaints from us!

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with San Francisco agency Nice&Company, spending several days creating a library of assets at various outdoor locations in Los Angeles. This would have seemed like a fairly simple proposition, accept for the fact that there is a severe drought in California and an ideal lush green grassed outdoor space is becoming increasingly hard to find. I flew down from SF a week before the shoot, spending a full day of pre production visiting somewhere near 20 city parks and reserves as well as a host of large scale private properties with most parched to a very un-photogenic shade of tan. We lucked in at the final location on scout day, Whittier Narrows Recreation Area  in South El Monte, an area of LA I had never visited. Discovering this venue saved our backsides as we are literally out of options with the clock running down, and ambassadorial talent flying in from all over the country. Our second location was made a little easier as we found  an exclusive private property in the hills of Thousand Oaks that had no water restrictions at all due to its private well offerings, it felt like we had been transported to the English countryside.

It was great to work alongside Doug Finelli, Sunni York and Val Beckwith from Nice&Company – thank you for having faith in us. Our ace producer Michael Mattes rocked out in all aspects of the shoot, most notably assembling a great crew of around 20 folks who delivered more than they were asked for.  A big thank you must goes out to all of them- too many to name. It was a long and arduous shoot incorporating sunrises and sunsets each day and little sleep in between.

But then again isn’t it always this way!!!

See you soon LA.
