In honor of #worldpoetryday I thought I would share my latest feature that was released yesterday on @AmericanoMondays (link to feature listed there)
.
It's a new installment in the #AMLiveSessions live performance/music video series and for this one we featured the the hip hop artist and spoken word poet, @prophiphop
.
This is also a cool feature because it's my first being released as a two-part feature. PART.02 will be released tomorrow the 22nd
.
I would be honored if you would check it out and share it with your friends. Thanks .
.

Left the house at 4:45 PM. Rode my bike down to #SunsetJunction . I had one hour before I needed a ride back - to be home by 6 PM to watch Paloma so that Leigh Anna can go to an event
.
Gave myself the goal of capturing one street portrait. Thankfully, I ended up meeting @estemerosoy - who had just moved here from #Mexico a few months back. Super cool dude. Great look. Was kind enough to let me take his portrait and we also discussed doing a shoot together soon
.
Boom💥Back on the #bike - rushed home. Processed out the image out in #lightroom . Thankfully, the wife is running late so I was able to get this all done before I heard the footsteps of a two-year-old walking up the steps because you know what that means: Dunzo SuckaZZZ

Our daughter has been home sick from daycare since Tuesday afternoon 😖 she finally went back this morning. Thank God! The last few days have been a futile experiment in trying to be productive while at the same time keeping a sick yet still very active two-year-old happy
.
So after making dinner for my wife and daughter - and after Paloma went to bed I grabbed my @fujifilmx_us #xpro2 and headed out for a brief walk around the neighborhood just to get out and be active for a freakin minute - as well as to try and be creative for at lest 5 minutes
.
Thankfully, I met @_justinbarco as he was walking down the street and he was kind enough to let me capture his portrait. I hadn't planned on approaching anyone and was more looking just to capture some handheld long exposure cityscape shots around our block - so I only had a 35mm lens on me, which normally wouldn't be my preferred method for portraiture but, screw it - why not. Gave me a different perspective than normal and allowed me to get in a little bit closer. Also, gotta freakin love that iPhone flashlight as the key light

I had one of those chance encounters yesterday that reaffirmed my love for photography
.
After wrapping a busy day of emails/calls/website edits - I still had some time left before having to pick up my daughter from daycare. So I grabbed my camera - drove to the beach - threw an hour on the meter and headed out on a mission to meet and photograph at least one person
.
Thankfully, the photo gods led me to "The Captain" of the #SantaMonica pier. A man so gracious with his time that we ended up spending around 10 minutes together, talking about life - marriage - children and his career. All while he was setting up to begin his daily ritual of fishing on the pier
.
Days like yesterday are why I freakin' love being a photographer
.
Photographed on my @fujifilmx_us #XPro2 using the new - freakin’ beautiful #ACROS B&W film simulation mode
.
PS: I love this new gallery feature - but I hate that its makes you crop all of the images - you can view the uncropped gallery on my website. .

Mr Louis Oberländer aka @triggerchromerides rocked it out for todays - very impromptu - 62 second long photo shoot at @deusemporium because he's one of the coolest guys around. Was so nice to bump into him today. Louis and I met a few years ago at @intellisilverla. I approached him to see if he'd be down to shoot - and being the pro that he is he said yes. Cut to a couple of weeks later - we rock out a great shoot in studio that results in one of the images that I captured of him on my #FujiXPro1 being selected by @pdnonline for their #facescompetition and published in the magazine
.
Great to see you today man - for one of our once a year chance encounters. Jealous of your amazing #motorcycle adventures

I ran in my 3rd #10K this morning in SantaMonica - not my best run ever - but at least I finished - and never had to slow down to walk. Which I was fully expecting since I'm still getting over having bronchitis for over a month. Thankfully - almost fully recovered
.
Was awesome to run it with Mr @daleyhake even though he kicked my butt. We ran our first race ever together last year as well - so that was cool to do this one again. Our goal is to possible do a #halfmarathon Together later this year
.
QUESTION for any other #applewatch owners using the #nikerunclub app - is anyone else having issues with the Nike app just quitting for no real reason? Just over halfway through I looked and it was stopped. This has happened numerous times - including on yesterday's hike/run as well. It still logs the run later when it decides to randomly sync it but I would've loved to have been able to track my run throughout the race and not have it split up into multiple readouts. It's very frustrating and it's making me consider moving over to the #Strava app which I've heard is good but it sort of defeats the purpose of intentionally buying the Nike addition of the Apple Watch to be able to utilize the #NRC app

I had the honor of photographing the writer/author, #CharlesFleming for @losangeles_cm - for his January talk on “Mystery." His work has been featured in #Variety , #Newsweek and he’s the author of numerous books, including the #NewYorkTimes bestseller, “Secret Stairs, A Walking Guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angeles”
.
(I run up and down some of those stairs when Im training on my runs…some of them are so freakin’ huge and steep - great workout)

I was recently commissioned by the #VillageVoice to photograph the guys behind the amazing podcast, #PodSaveAmerica . Hosted by Jon Favreau (former #Obama speech writer) Tommy Vietor (former Obama NSC spokesman) and Jon Lovett (former Obama/Clinton speechwriter - screenwriter)
And did I mention - they’re all younger than me!
And if you’re like me - and feel pissed off about what’s happening with the Trump administration - then you definitely need to subscribe to their podcast - it’s been cathartic listening to these guys - they’re smart - and freakin’ funny so it’s been a needed escape. #canon5dmarIII #podcast #politics #crookedmedia #lightroom

I had the honor of working with @si_golf for the 3rd year in a row on their “Most Beautiful Women in Golf” feature. I shot four separate spreads for this project in 2016 and had a great time meeting and working with so many different subjects. I’ll be sharing a few images here
-
3/3 Ms @kirakazantsev - The 2015 Miss America ⚡A freakin good golfer and ⚡someone who truly surprised me with her range in front of the camera. I love it when that happens💯I had such a great day working with her and the whole crew to capture these images....That we shot in June of last year 😖 So yeah, it freakin sucked to sit on such beautiful images for 7 months before being able to show them. I am so happy that I can finally release them
-
A special thank you to everyone at #GOLFMagazine for bringing me along for another year. Can't wait to hopefully do it again. -

2/3 An outtake from my shoot with Ms @kirakazantsev for the 2017 "Most Beautiful Women in Golf" for @si_golf. We had just wrapped shooting some really beautiful images of Kira by a pool. But before we moved on I wanted to try and get one more option from that location. There were these massive curtains/shades behind where I was shooting so I had her stand in front of them - had one of my assistants fire the #ProfotoB1 directly above me, I dragged the exposure and hit the lens with my fist as I was firing off the shutter. Why not? Popped off 4 or 5 frames like that and this is the only one that turned out. Freakin worth it.
