On 7th/ Olive…Downtown Los Angeles, CA

As I watched this lovely cloud of curly hair sway in the wind I couldn’t help but ask for a photo of her. You can I obviously caught her off gaurd, but that’s what I like about the photos I take.

Black Fashion in Los Angeles

I have never really taken notice to it but it was recently brought to my attention that I am becoming a prominent figure within the Black/African American Fashion Community within Los Angeles. I myself have never been a apart of a community where I felt welcomed as a black kid within the Black community, so to be accepted now is still very strange to me. It’s not a bad thing nor am I complaining, it’s just feels strange how it all randomly happened so quick. I’d like to think I’m doing something right but at the same time I wonder if it’s just because of social media?

Over the course of me photographing styles on the street on DTLA, those who have stood out the most have been young Black individuals who have their own creative view on fashion. I am always available to shoot any independent fashion events or even shows for those like minded individuals who wants a different view on things. But in the meantime here are some of my favorite looks I’ve seen on the streets.

PS I love all of you beautiful people and I wish to work with more of my beautiful black and brown people.

Hair, Glasses, Eye Shadow…

Can we talk about how amazing it is when the right combination happens to a person’s being when they have the right glasses, the right eye shadow or their hair is just awesome. If you have all three going on the you are in good with me. 

As a streetstyle photographer I do look for outfits but I also like to look for what is making this person unique and that’s when all three of the before mentioned happens.  It’s being summer in Los Angeles, and hotter than usual because of the storm from Huston, TX, I’ve noticed people aren’t focused on what to wear because of the heat, but they do focus on what their face would look like.  So I decided to focus on that and the outfits, if the equation is right then I ask for a photo or two. Here some of my favorites so far during this summer.

Shooting for others.

Hello, once again I have not been shooting lovely people on the streets of Los Angeles, as I mentioned in a previous post about how hard it is to do in the winter since everyone is covered up and wearing mainly dark colors all of the time and the light is gone before I get the day started. None the less I have done a few editorial shoot for bloggers and boutiques during the month of December. But before I forget, Happy New Year and all that jazz! Be sure to watch for some very exciting sets from me and others during 2017.
