I've been really busy working on other projects and traveling so I haven't posted anything in quite awhile. I was just browsing through some old shoots and stumbled up this image of Chanon from a shoot for Arsenic Magazine in Beverly Hills a few years ago. I'm moving back to LA in two weeks so I hope to shoot more while I'm there.
Last month I was hanging out in London for 2 weeks and on the way home to San Diego I had a two hour layover in New York which turned into a week long stay. For those of you that don't know, since 2008, I've been working with a company called 3Dar which is a video/post-production/animation studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Our good friends/long time client Mirrorball was collaborating with Perrier on a street art campaign and brought us in to help with some video production to showcase the art and to create some interactive displays at some of the events they were doing in Toronto and NYC. Check out the some of what we were doing:
If you thought mid-September was an uneventful time of the year, think again — today we reveal Perrier’s Limited Edition Street Art Collection and you are front and center for the big moment. This new creation is a groundbreaking collaboration between three global street artists: Sasu, JonOne and Kobra, who hail from Tokyo, Paris and São Paulo respectively. All three world-renowned artists were selected to complete one unique task — to redesign, refresh and renew the iconic look of the Perrier bottle in their very own way.
Defining a new era in Perrier packaging, this Street Art Collection brings one of the most popular contemporary art movements to the palm of your hand. Previously disregarded for its illicit and underground nature, street art has grown to be one of the most recognizable and democratized art forms. The bold, colorful and youthful packaging continues to emphasize Perrier’s daring and innovative nature.
Let the video take you on a special journey from the beautiful Perrier bottle to the innovative street art masterpiece it becomes today.
This is definitely one of the best time-lapse videos I've ever seen. Joel Schat does an amazing job at capturing the beauty of nature that is so often overlooked by today's fast paced living. None of the shots he took are quick and easy, they all take time and that time forces one to sit back and relax while enjoying something that's all around us, yet seldom appreciated. It's seeing videos and photography like this that continue to inspire me to get out and see as much of the world as possible. Amazing job Joel and Roadtrippers.com!
My beautiful friend and amazing model Gabriella just launched her new website www.fallinlust.com. If you like great photography and appreciate beauty then you should definitely check out her site. Gaby and I have shot a few times and have become great friends over the years and I'm really happy to see her website come to life because I know how much work she's put into it. Check it out!
I was in LA yesterday taking photos for Arsenic Magazine's "Spring Fling" photo shoot. This shoot was more fun than usual because my good friend/photographer Janet Vuong was hanging out on set shooting some behind the scenes stuff. She also let me borrow her Nikon D800 and play around with some of her lenses as well. I'm definitely feeling the need to upgrade soon. Here are some of the behind the scenes shots, I was able to snap a few of Janet as well.
I finally have a bit of free time to go through images from my most recent photo shoot with Arsenic Magazine which took place on January 2, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. I'll post more shots later.
