Busy busy busy day on the horizon as I continue editing a new video with Angelina Prendergast that we shot over a year ago and getting started on shooting a new video with Angelina Christina as she creates a new mural by the 4th Street Bridge in DTLA. The work never stops over here and that's after a full day of shooting with Mel Montesi yesterday in Oxnard and around The Valley.
Today though we enter full Fall as LA starts to cool down with a brand new set featuring Mika Mae Jones. Mika is a beautiful poet and visual artist with a penchant for fringe culture and macabre. Mika is one of those people that I've known personally through social media for a while going back to when I was working on Kung Fu Breakfast The Magazine. Mika and I finally got the chance to meet up in person and shoot some photos together. We decided to head to one of the best spots in all of Los Angeles: Murphy Ranch. Murphy Ranch was once a Nazi Sympathizer Camp nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains which then became an artist colony in the 60's and 70's and now is just a rundown building ripe with graffiti. The hike to get there requires parking in a weird neighborhood, walking along a rundown street until you see a hole in a fence that takes you down 500 steep stairs straight to Murphy Ranch. The hike was well worth it because we got some amazing photos and talked about some trippy shit including sex on Ketamine.
Just a warning that this set is NSFW so click the photo below and cover your monitor when your boss walks in
