Jake Johnson @mrjakejohnson was at the TCA's to promote his new show Stumptown on ABC @stumptownabc. Sometimes it works out when you meet people that you love watching on TV and they are exactly what you hoped they would be. In this case Jake was even more enjoyable in person than the fun loveable characters he plays on TV. Jake, it was a pleasure to work with you! Thanks for making our day!!
After 15 seasons together the guys from @cw_supernatural seemed more like family than coworkers. That’s the vibe we got when @alex8calvert @jaredpadalecki @misha @jensenackles stopped by. You could tell these guys have a great time being around each other by the way they were laughing together and giving each other a hard time while shooting. Thanks making it easy and fun guys!
We are finally coming up for air after shooting the TCA’s for @people / @contourbygettyimages . 5 networks in 5 days and it was fast and furious! We built sets, came up with lighting ideas, and figured how to squeeze multiple sets into one small room. It was an awesome experience and we are so happy with the work we were able to get out of it. Thanks for all the talent willing to give us time and energy to create these images. Thanks also to @kennethawert for making the process so seem less and the experience so enjoyable. We are going to be posting a few of our favorites over the next few days. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed creating them. First up from our last day, #guypearce for @fxnetworks.
#tbt with #michaelsheen and #lizzycaplan for #emmymagazine. This is one of our all time favorite shoots! We had a great time with these two and they were very giving with their time and willingness to play along! Thanks @rosecefalu for having us on this fun shoot!
New work just released from our pilot shoot for @cw_katykeene and @lucyhale. Had a great time in New York photographing the cast and we can’t wait to check out the show! Thanks @caitthegrrreat for taking us to the Big Apple for this one! Digi @stevekayphoto assistants Ryan Garcia and Johnny DeGuzman. Thanks @rootstudios for all the EQ.
We got to cover the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio CA this last weekend. Always an incredible assignment. Such a great group of people to shoot with!
This last weekend our buddy @andrewpagano of @livelihoodco invited us on a really cool assignment. He is filming a docu-series about @rickyg_78 who is the youngest driver to attempt to race the P2 truck division in the Lucas Oil Off-road National Series. We gladly went along to do a photo essay and we loved every minute of it! We can’t thank Ricky and his family and crew for welcoming us in and giving absolute access to help tell this story! Check out @livelihoodco for links to the episodes on YouTube. Andrew has put together some amazing episodes so far!!! #photography #lucasoiloffroad #canon #offroad #racing #lifestyle #sport #espn #mavtv #arizona #pictureoftheday
Something new we shot last month! @perrymattfeld for @thecw! We loved working with her and the awesome vibe of the set! Thanks @christinedonovan27 for thinking of us and making it happen! Big thanks to our crew @adamchristopherphoto Tarik Richards @dennisjlin and @stevekayphoto for all the help and @edge_studios for all the gear!
We are excited about these images we shot for a personal project documenting the bad ass ladies of @sfvrollerderby! Entering their world felt kind of like entering “Fight Club.” Tucked away in a industrial section of Sylmar, CA, behind a chain link fence you can find the small dimly lit track they call home. It is nothing fancy but it is theirs. Each week the girls clean and set up the track themselves. Their hard work is a testament to this sport they love. The ladies were so welcoming and enthusiastic. It was great to see them as a tight knit team who support each other and kick ass together! Thank you for having us!!
New work for @penguinteen @penguinbooks. At the end of last year we got a call from Penguin Books to photograph the cover of a young adult novel called “Undead Girl Gang” that focuses on a teen Wiccan, undead teens and a murder mystery. We had a great time shooting with our friend @lovemarisel who gave us the perfect attitude for the shot! Thanks to @dollhouseteam for all your hard work on the hair and makeup!
#flashbackfriday. Just a few of our favorites.
Excited to share a new image from a recent shoot with @lanacondor. Beautiful, vibrant and funny! What more can you ask for??cant wait to share more shots of her when we can! Makeup: @antonmakeup hair: @mattshair styling: @highheelprncess and thanks to @jordynpalos and @personapr! #toalltheboysivelovedbefore
Over the New Year, we were lucky enough to spend time with the Under Armor All American High School Football players in Orlando FL. The talent this year was incredible and just keeps getting better year after year. It is an amazing opportunity to get up close and capture images of these kids out there showing what they can do against the best of the best. This year, for the first time, we got to work with the UA Next group which is all 8th graders. This is a selection of images from our time with them. These kids were not only amazingly big and athletic for their age but brought an excitement and an attitude to at all that was not only fun to be around but also impressive for their age.
Had the opportunity to work with one of the coolest guys out there. @michaelbeach is a true gentleman and a gifted actor that has been doing his thing for over 30 years and most recently in @aquamanmovie and @bealestreet. He told us that this is the first time in his career that he had done a shoot that was just about him, not a character or involved with a specific show he was working on, just him. We were honored that he allowed us that privilege. Grooming: @andreapezzillo Styling: @stylelvr Location: @arteryla @personapr @jordynpalos #psphotofestival
Excited to share some new work from the end of 2018. We had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful @ochoachristina on a warm December LA day. Christina was funny, beautiful and effortless in front of the camera. She came ready to do whatever we asked and even had her own ideas for things she wanted to try. Can’t ask to collaborate with anyone better! Thanks @mikeyliotta for getting this all together. It’s always great working with a gentleman like yourself!
Beauty images from one of our favorite clients @toofaced! We always have a good time when we get to work with everyone at Too Faced so it never feels like work!
A recent portrait taken for @angelenomagazine of photography collector Bruce Nelson. It was such a great experience to photograph him and to see is incredible collection of photography especially being a photographer. The first shot is what actually ran in the magazine that was shot using a #speedgraphic camera shot on @ilfordphoto film. The second shot is an out take that captures Bruce’s warm and welcoming spirit. What a great experience! Thanks @crisxian for all them help on this one!
#happythanksgivng! We hope everyone has a wonderful day. We are thankful for everyone we are fortunate enough to work with. Our great crews always help make our shoots a success and we couldn’t do it without them. From making a 9’ seamless fit in a 8 ‘ space to traveling with us to some interesting locations and bringing all the gear, we value all of you!
A day away from #thanksgiving so another day of being thankful. Thinking about all the different and fascinating people we have the opportunity to meet. People that are telling amazing stories, creating beautiful things and most of all doing things their own way. They inspire us to continue to better ourselves and our work. Thanks to all of you who share your stories and passions with us!
#thanksgiving week day 2. Thankful for being able to work with so many talented and creative people. They make us laugh, cry, think and feel. It’s always fun to be able to meet the people behind the characters we love and get to know them even a little.
Since this week is Thanksgiving we thought we should stop and think about some of the things we are thankful for. First and foremost we are very thankful for our amazing clients, so many of who have become more like friends. Without them we wouldn’t be here doing what we love. Thanks to all of you who give us the chance to be creative and have a great time creating for you! #thankful #clients #lovewhatyoudo
Recently we had the chance to work with one of our favorite subjects from our makers series we did a few years back, but this time for a article in @localemagazine. Here are some outtakes from the story we did with @whorehausstudios in her downtown studio. It’s always a fun day to shoot with Meyghan, getting to talk with her and watch her create. We would photograph her again in a heartbeat!

Something new with @streatclark. Can’t wait to check him out in “Glass”! It was great to collaborate with you Spencer!
So excited for this image that just dropped today! The big reveal of @rubyrose as Batwoman for the upcoming @batwomancw show. We are stoked on how this one came together. Thanks @caitthegrrreat and @christinedonovan27 for having us and respecting the ancient law of “calling dibs” on this shoot! Thanks to our great crew as well @stevekayphoto for the digi and @kylehphoto @jasonafrankphoto Tarik Richards, and @danielramosphotography for getting our lighting dialed in and @edge_studios for taking care of us as always!
A few weeks ago up in the Bay Area shooting @irishmike555 and his teammates from @divineelectricracing as they did their usual weekend training ride in Marin. So cool to get to see them in action and be in position as the peleton rolled right by. The sound of them coming down the road was like a truck at full speed. Really cool to see up close and personal! #cycling #photography #sport #outside #picoftheday #peloton #canon #lifestyle #action
A little while back we got to spend some time and photograph @errolspencejr the IBF Welterweight Champ. We loved capturing some great moments with him as well as making some dramatic portraits. Can’t wait to see what he does next!
Recent work we shot for @ysbnow of The young and talented singer songwriter AJ Mitchell: #ajmitchell Always fun to shoot with the talented crew for YSBNow. AJ is super talented and his casual vibe made it super easy to capture some really nice moments with him. #pop #teen #music #photography #picoftheday #canon #billboard #portraitphotography #celebrity #lotsofhashtags
New work! @jcamacho made our life easy. Beautiful and fun! And congrats on your #netflixoriginal show #anotherlife. Can’t wait to check it out!
#tbt to a shoot with the hilarious @jonathankite. We had the pleasure to photograph him a couple times and every time his energy and willingness to give us everything makes the shoot effortless!
NEW WORK! @marthahigaredaoficial for @localemagazine. We were fortunate to photograph the #AlteredCarbon star on location at @loewssmbeach. It’s impossible to take a bad photo of her! Everything came together on this shoot with the talent, the location, and the awesome ‘62 Impala provided by the Automobile Driving Museum. Makeup: @brianbondmakeup, styling @bornorigingal and hair by Melena Villavicencio. Couldn’t have done it without the help of @kylehphoto and @danielramosphotography. Big thanks as always to our Locale peeps @reillyek and @kalynncnguyen.
#tbt that time we photographed Garrett Morris for #emmymagazine. He was one of the coolest guys we have met! Witty and charming. Did you know he was the first African-American cast member on SNL? It was an honor to photograph him and to spend a little time with him! #garrettmorris #2brokegirls #snl #livefromnewyork
@raylewis dropping some knowledge on some of his players during his camp at IMG Accadamy in Bradenton FL. #football #fridaynightlights #portraits #sports #nfl #photography #photooftheday #lifestyle #moment #ducumentary #canon
Lost Chester Bennington one year go today.
New work for @angelenomagazine. We photographed chef duo/restaurant owners/husband and wife Quinn and Karen Hatfield at one of their 3 locations, Odys + Penelope. We used the available light in the restaurant and added a little of our own using our @profotousa lights with a medium Photek umbrella. We love the results!
Had a blast photographing all the fast and loud fun at #bornfreestampede on Friday night! Even more impressive than the racing was the camaraderie between the racers. You can truly see the passion everyone has for motorcycling and the community of riders. Tag the riders if you know them.
