Shoot with Brian Ulrich

A few days ago I had the pleasure of shooting Brian Ulrich from NEXT.

It was fun to do a shoot with someone didn't mind my idea of spitting several gallons of water all over my studio floor and managed to not hit my camera once.
However, I did fall on the soaking wet studio floor several times and at some point my hand was covered in blood from falling into a sharp object.

Turned out that he is a talented musician as well... check out his tunes here.

Aside from his lovely personality, I am quite smitten with his scars.

VH1's "Tough Love" Billboard

The billboards I shot for VH1's new show "Tough Love" are now on La Cienega and Olympic Blvd in LA.

I've worked on a ton of VH1 shows in the past year, but this one is clearly my top favorite of this upcoming season!

Beautiful Decay : The Alexandria Hotel

Once upon a time, in the Alexandria Hotel's heyday, movie stars and other celebrities, including Valentino, Mary Miles Minter, Sarah Bernhardt, Enrico Caruso and Jack Dempsey were guests.

Charlie Chaplin reportedly kept a suite at the Alexandria and did improvisations in the lobby, and western star Tom Mix reportedly rode his horse through the lobby. The large oriental rug in the lobby was called the "million-dollar carpet", because there was purportedly a $1 million worth of business done there every day.

It was there that D.W. Griffith, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks met in 1919 to form United Artists. U.S. Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson, and many foreign dignitaries, also stayed at the hotel while visiting Los Angeles.

Today, it's refuge to the adventurous, the fearless, the unwanted ... and if you can sneak by one of the sleepy security guards, you can wander around in the empty hallways, peek into half closed doors or sneak up to the spectacular roof.
Just don't get caught.
