Yesterday we talked about a confluence of circumstance. Some seem inevitable. Because I knew Liza I eventually met Mandee. Had I not known Liza would I have met Mandee? Perhaps not, but many of my LA Muses and I have multiple friends in common, we participate in similar scenes, but some meetings are almost completely unrelated to anything other than chance. Such was my meeting with today's subject, the lovely Peyton Victoria.
To support my art making practices whenever I don't have enough gigs to do so I drive for rideshare services such as Lyft and Uber. It's honestly not the greatest job, but it gives me the flexibility and freedom to do all the other amazing things I do. On many of these rides the question comes up about what else I do. You see everyone in LA does something other than the thing you seem them doing, and so my photography comes up. On occasion the reaction I get will be, "Oh rad! I would love to shoot with you sometime!" 99% of the time that conversation has lead to nothing but sometime a while back I was giving a ride to three people where the same conversation played out. A beautiful girl named Peyton told me she was visiting her other friends in the car from up in The Bay Area.
Peyton and I kept in touch and several months later she found herself coming back to LA for another visit. I mentioned the shoots I had been doing in Switzer Falls and wanted to include her in the same series. She was very excited and there we went. Peyton and I had a beautiful day together. I often mention the conversation that's had throughout the day and my beautiful dialogues with Peyton are some of the my favorite that I've had. Peyton is a thoughtful human being with a wide open mind. We had a wonderful day together and she is easily one of my favorite muses I've ever worked with. We have since gotten together to shoot again and I continue to look forward to more shoots to come. Peyton is a wonderful woman and I only see great things for her future. I feel privileged to spend the time with her that I have and I think you will too. Enjoy!
