We had the pleasure of shooting LA Weekly’s Best of LA 2014 issue. We spent the better part of two months producing 7 shoots depicting our own version of the rapture in LA. Thanks to all those who collaborated!
We had a great time shooting Mike “Mouse” McCoy for Worth Magazine this summer. Mouse is definitely one of the most interesting people we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Many thanks to Bandito Bros and Worth Magazine.
President Barak Obama appeared with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns (yep, really happened), and this historic event has won the show a Watch Award.
We were asked to shoot the show’s creator Scott Aukerman and executive producer Mike Farah at the Funny Or Die headquarters for the latest cover of ADWEEK.
So I guess we’re friends with the President now. Woo hoo!
Here are a few outakes and a bts shot:

Hair/MUA: Veronica Chanel
Check out the latest Feature Shoot online group show: 33 Beach Vacation Photos. They chose an image of ours that we shot while road-tripping through Florida last fall. We call it “Bohemian Ice Cream Man Cyclist of Fort Meyers Beach.” Good times!
Packed our cameras and took a little trip to Palm Springs this weekend, stopped along the way to take a few shots…

We recently sat down with Ryland Blackinton, for an in-depth interview in an attempt to gain a glimpse into the the mind of the genius behind the man that is Ryland Backinton…reader discretion is advised…
R&S: Is Ryland Blackinton your real name?
RB: Yea, I was born Ryland Sharp, then my mother remarried and I was legally adopted by her husband when I was six. I’ve been Ryland Blackinton ever since.
R&S: Which one of your 60 million fans is your favorite?
RB: My mother
R&S: Are you rich?
R&S: Does your guitar have a name?
R&S: What is your favorite note?
R&S: What is the worst thing you’ve ever done onstage?
RB: I did a play in college about these two affluent gay teenagers who commit murder and get off on it and ultimately discover they’re in love with each other. It was really heavy material for a cast as under-rehearsed as ours. There was a scene where I had to make out with the other guy, but we put it off until dress rehearsals. Bad move. It was a very rushed, messy and unrealistic moment of performance for me. I feel bad for anyone who saw it.
R&S: Would you start a band with Paul McCartney if he insisted that you both had to play naked?
RB: Wow, tough call! …… Yes
R&S: If you were trapped on a desert island with Tom Petty would it be heaven or hell?
RB: Pure heaven
R&S: What’s the fastest you can play your guitar?
RB: Nirvana – Come As You Are. THAT fast
R&S: If you had to tattoo one album cover on your back what would it be?
RB: The White Album
R&S: If you lost both your arms would you learn to play with your feet or would you just be a baby and quit?
R&S: Why don’t you have a Facebook page?
RB: I already feel sufficiently ‘connected’
R&S: Who would be your ultimate Fight Club opponent?
RB: Abraham Lincoln (pre-vampire hunter)
R&S: Where would you take Jeff Lynn on a date?
RB: Dave and Busters (on MDMA)
R&S: Rickett or Sones?

If you would have told us that we were going to shoot a sniper for the cover of SOF we would have assumed your crystal ball jumbled the message and actually meant to say that we were going to be shot BY the sniper on the cover of SOF…
Luckily no bullets were exchanged and our image did indeed make it on the cover of Soldier of Fortune.
On set with Brandon Webb, Navy Seal Sniper Head Instructor and author of NY Times best seller The Red Circle.
Malibu we’ve had a fantastic run but we are too young to retire Good bye Malibu…
