So we had a killer shoot with Leah @_stumbleine last week around a local neighborhood by Venice Beach. It was such a pleasure shooting film with her! Though we had 10 shots, the experience was worth more than enough aside from the actually shooting. I’ve shot this near high noon but I’m getting the hang of things managing bright sunlight. There was a nice little dog park nearby, with probably about 20 dogs in one area if I can remember. It was neat seeing them play around and going about their day. I’ve always preferred shooting somewhere local. And to me local is not just a quarter of a mile where I’m based, but it can be defined as being on the opposite side of the city. I always want to try to embody the different little neighborhoods in LA, because there’s just sooo many. Whenever I’m commuting somewhere in LA, there’s some sort of gut feeling that triggers inside of me...specifically my level of comfortability. I could be settled driving through Koreatown or East Hollywood and feel at ease. But if I’m passing through West Hollywood or Beverly Hills, I always seem to have my guard up. There’s totally different factors at play here, even the most logical reasons. But it’s just something I’ve experienced my whole life living here. Though I’m always appreciating the beauty of each neighborhoods and their surroundings. With myself local to Mid-City, I appreciate the neighboring Hancock Park. The houses in that neighborhood are amazing. From architecture to the local infrastructure. These mansions are obviously waaaaayyyy out of my budget and pay haha, but it’s always nice to dream and get a little taste of it whenever I’m in the area. 🎞

Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride.
I've been doing a lot of angsty ruminating and getting nowhere with it, so I'm throwing this nerdy-ass (and wordy-ass) love letter into the universe and hoping it lights the landscape up enough to give me a little clarity.
I am playing to my strengths when I am planning, organizing, and leading group efforts into new territory. I'm happy when I'm connecting with people and developing meaningful experiences and relationships. I dream of photo/writing/travel opportunities, using my pickiness as a professional strength, and getting to build teams that will give people room and opportunity to grow and flourish within them. I measure success not just in results, but in the way we got there - the elegant solution, the path of integrity, the collaborations that lead to lifelong friendships and joint passion projects, the obstacles that were opportunities in disguise, and yeah - how solid is our documentation? I need to be proud and I need to light up when I'm talking about what I do.
Maybe I'm already in it, maybe I'm building it, or maybe I still need to find it. But my success criteria are pretty clear, and I'm going to keep feeling itchy and restless until I'm meeting them.
Curious to hear what other people's experiences have been with pursuing outlets and career opportunities that feed off their raging drive to create great things... Are you there yet? Is there a "there"? Is Narnia unreachable? ...Thank you for reading my directionless novel. 😂 I'm feeling really writey lately.

Hard to believe this was two years ago. @yosemitenps is one of the most beautiful places on earth and you can go there, free. September 28th is National Public Lands day and all the national parks are free. They are ours America. Respect them. Care for them. Enjoy them.
Sam Ware, 22, walks through a park in The Entrance, Central Coast, Australia. His mother, Deb, watched the kind-hearted, funny boy she loved who enjoyed photography and walking in the woods, rapidly disappear as his opioid addiction took hold. In his place was a deceptive, desperate stranger whose soul seemed to have been sucked from his body. Looking back now, she marvels at how fast it all happened. "You become the drug," she says. "It's only a matter of five days before Sam was gone.” Sam is currently in an involuntary drug treatment program for a month. After surviving 60 overdoses in 12 months, his mother, Deb, is relieved, for now, that he’s some place safe.

Halfway through my first 6x7 roll and I've wasted 2 out of 10 shots 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️ the first one I accidentally hit the shutter button without having it locked. And the second one I forgot my dog decided to nose the front element leaving a wonderful smudge. Shortly after snapping I looked at the lens and saw a big ol' nose smudge.
Regardless I'm loving this monster and can't wait to see my first roll!!! #shootfilmmag#gobrokeshootfilm#pentax6x7#120film
