Ganna & Steve in “DRUGS” by Dream Stretcher

Ganna & Steve in “DRUGS” by Dream Stretcher

A Big Thank you to our friends Ganna and Steve for lending their talents for a very special music project I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of called Dream Stretcher.  Driving out to Joshua Tree with 4 friends and a camera to film a music video for a song that means something incredibly real to me…well, it was really the only way to go.

This is “Drugs” directed by Ryan Valdez

ASPEN in a film by Gizelle Hernandez

This film by Gizelle Hernandez featuring our alien beauty Aspen is a visual feast for those of us who crave the strange and unpredictable shapes fashion can take on.  I usually gravitate towards dark and moody vibes, but how refreshing it is to see color and whimsy for a change!  It’s Alice [as in Wonderland] coming undone in her own crazy fantasy, and we looooove it.  Bravo to all involved! Job well done.

The First Babe Alert of 2015 – Ciara Turner

It feels good to be back!!! We’re ready to make 2015 the best year yet, and with the Photogenics Art Book Vol. 2 on the horizon it’s sure to be a busy one.

I thought I’d start out with a little Babe Alert to get the year going on this blog.  I just want everyone to know about this girl because she’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and she really brings it in front of the camera.  Look out for her in the Art Book issue of PhotogenicsMAG coming soon.

Chloe Norgaard for i-D Magazine by StevieMada

It’s always nice seeing photographers you’ve worked with from the beginning “testing” days on the pages or websites of the best magazines on the planet.  It makes you feel like you played a part in the success of artists around you, and in this case, it’s the dynamic duo Steve Mada who last year made a colorful collection of shots featuring our resident rainbow child, Chloe.  Here’s to LA’s perpetual summer blues…and a long lost editorial rediscovered.

“Sinking Stone” by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused

This video directed by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused is sort of fitting for a Halloween Friday.  It’s a dark and twisty Bonnie & Clyde story.  There’s blood.  There’s a scary corn-rowed, jersey, grilled-out, gold chained twin brother villain duo chasing two attractive yet troubled teens through a dizzying tripped out nightmare set to a beautiful track by GEMS called “Sinking Stone.”  In other words, it’s F*cking FANTASTIC!!!

Best yet, it features our very own Krystall Schott, the ultimate model/author Kris Kidd, and Harmony Kourine’s claimed ATL Twins.  Click the image below to check out the video on DazedDigital.com including a little interview with the directors.
