Elvina Beck - Rise Above

Devastated.  That is is how I feel right now.  Wrecked would perhaps be another word.  Weekend two of the Cannabis Cup is over and some rad pictures and amazing times were had but I am certainly worse for wear.  I took yesterday to recover and now I am back in the game.  Angelina Christina is currently in Hawaii for Pow! Wow! so this week I have a few photo shoots and some major editing to do.  I can't complain though because I see how much work those around me do and it's motivation to keep working.

One of those hard working people is the subject of today's set: Elvina Beck.  I first met Elvina back in the Fall while working documenting Angelina Christina working on a mural at Elvina's place of business PodShare in DTLA.  This mural just recently was recently put on to a guitar for The Zac Brown Band (pretty cool).  Elvina is a young entrepreneur running a variety of these hostile-esque shared live-work spaces known as PodShare.  For our shoot we decided to head to each of the three locations, including the Los Feliz which was under construction at the time and the now recently closed DTLA spot (the building owner sold the space).  We had a rad shoot, Elvina is a delight and I'm sure we will shoot together again in the future.
