This is a piece I have been working on for the past handful of months with local San Diego director Marq Evans. The piece is a look into the charismatic, eccentric, and talented life of Bear, who is totally a bear, and not a human in a bear suit. This will be the first installment of what is to be a mini-doc series on the life of Bear, so be on the look out for more!
I was again given the opportunity to shoot behind the scenes photos for my good friend Matt Mangham's ongoing series: Analog Stories. This one featuring another friend and fellow stills and video guy: Matthew Lawless. Its always fun when you've got three guys in one place that all share common hobbies and professions and the couple days I spent shooting with these two was no exception.
Both of the Matts are super talented dudes with backgrounds in video production on top of their mutual passion to see film photography stay relevant and fun. Below you'll find the bts shots along with the finished piece, enjoy!
I first became acquainted with Carter's work four or five months ago via his Instagram. I had just shot some photos up in Venice at the Deus Ex Machina "Raduno Ducati" event, and I was cruising the #caferacer hashtag when I stumbled upon his coffee ring drawings. Fast forward a couple months and I reached out to him to ask if I could shoot him working on a couple pieces.
We met at a local North Park favorite, Coffee and Tea Collective, to get acquainted and it turns out we've got a few mutual friends. After fueling up at C&T we walked over to another great local spot, Gym Standard, to pop in and say hey to shop owner Edwin. Edwin's got a great eye for design and the shop's general aesthetic is awesome so we decided to shoot there. Below are some images from our meeting, a few of which I'm told are going to be used in the upcoming campaign for the launch of the new ASUS smartphone - pretty sweet!
