Glen Iris at Outdoor Cinema Food Fest (August 21, 2010)

Outdoor Cinema Food Fest is exactly what it sounds like. A movie plays on a 50-foot screen that is set up somewhere outdoors while food trucks (all the rage here in Los Angeles) are parked all around the block for your dining pleasure. Before each movie there is also, typically, a band. On this night […]

Slumberland Records 20th Anniversary Party

Even though I have no idea what it’s like to run a record label, if I ever wanted to start one or work for one, Slumberland Records would be what I would want it to be like. For over twenty years now they have been consistently releasing some of the best independent music, well, independently and they […]

JRevolution Prototype Showroom / Downtown L.A. Art Walk (June 6, 2010)

Near the center of the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk (2nd Thursday of every month) is the JRevolution showroom.  You can find it easily by the loud Reggae music emanating  from within—from either a great local DJ or band. The clothing is hip, urban attire with obvious Reggae and Caribbean influences.

Sights from the 1st Annual L.A. Street Food Festival

Food trucks, mobile kitchens or roach coaches, whatever you call them, they have become quite a phenomenon.  Long lines often form at the most popular trucks late into the night outside of bars and clubs. One day some enterprising folks must have wondered,  ”what if we brought all these food vendors together in one place at […]

Mosaic’d Panoramas

On February 21, I attended a huge event sponsored by the Los Angeles Group admins on flickr.  Typically these “flickr-walks” bring out about 10-20 folks.  This one had to have had over 100.  The official thread for the event is archived here. For this day I decided to try a technique where you tile list […]

Party at Typhoon Restaurant

February 18, 2009 Who would have guessed that one of the best restaurants (IMHO) in Los Angeles would be nestled in the terminal at Santa Monica airport?  Typhoon serves an amazing panoply of Asian cuisine.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I would definitely recommend giving it a try. My favorite dishes: the Filipino style […]

The Scarlet Paradigm at the Whiskey a Go Go

Last night I got to see The Scarlet Paradigm play at the world famous Whiskey a Go Go. More photos from the show after the jump.

January L.A. Strobist meet-up: Post-mortem

First off a big thanks to all the photographers–especially Karen (Mizz Maze) and Andreas (ANMPhotography) who where the source for most of our models, the models, the make-up artists and the guests who came to the meet. And also a big thanks to Robert and his staff at the 533 Studio who made this all […]

New Year’s Eve Party at AltPixel Studios

I was lucky enough to start 2009 watching my good friend and fellow photographer Bryan Villarin and his band the Scarlet Paradigm play at a studio/house party in Santa Monica. Happy 2009 everyone!
