My buddy Mike just posted this on Facebook and I thought it was awesome. These two kids from Flatbush (Brooklyn), New York have a great sense of style and definitely surprise you by their age and the music they're interested in. They must have some really cool supportive parents.
On Thursday I was in Venice Beach, CA shooting for another project with Arsenic Magazine. This particular project was a collaboration with writer/director/producer Scott Z. Burns (Bourne Ultimatum, Contagion, The Informant) and DP Bryan Newman. I was shooting stills for Arsenic as well as some behind the scenes footage. In between takes I was able to leave the set to shoot a few outdoor shots with the beautiful models Alyssa Smith and Tatiana Dieteman represented by Next Model Management. It was really bright out when we were shooting, luckily William Painter was there to provide some comfort from the midday sun.

You may or may not know this about me, but aside from being a photographer I'm also a musician. In fact, music is my main profession and something I'm extremely passionate about. Music plays a roll in almost everything I do and is a big contributing factor in all of my photo shoots. For most of my shoots I'll create a playlist specifically for that shoot. I was using my iPod, but now I primarily use Spotify since it has almost every song I could possibly want to hear and always introduces me to great new music I would have otherwise missed. So, with that being said, I've decided to create a blog series I'm going to title "Music of the Moment." with this being my first post in the series.
For my first "Music of the Moment" post I'm going to share a song that I just stumbled upon a few minutes ago by the Wallflowers called "Reboot The Mission." I've always liked Jakob Dylan and the Wallflowers and this is a song I had never heard before. I just discovered it on Black Dog Films awesome website.
