Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim editorial for Oyster magazine, shot by us.
Tim and Eric are very particular about everything they do, so we wanted to honor Eric’s idea of shooting this editorial with a “disposable camera look.” Their “daughters” had no idea what was happening, but they played along and did an amazing job.
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.
We had a great time shooting on location at the Pirate Speedway this weekend for an OC Weekly cover shoot. A raging ring of fire and a stuntman on a fast bike with no brakes, can it get more exciting? Check out our final image in this weeks issue of OC Weekly.
Here is a portrait of our stuntman Shawn McConnell:
And last but not least, a Rickett and Sones “making of” video:
We were pretty excited when LA Canvas reached out and asked us to shoot a portrait for their latest “Hidden Issue” and even more excited we found out we’d be shooting musician Jonathan Bates aka Big Black Delta.
Ron Finley is a badass. He works hard to create wellness awareness in urban environments by planting gardens in low-income homes, sidewalks, you name it. In particular he aims to turn ‘food deserts’ (urban areas with no access to organic foods) into ‘food forests’ using what is readily available in these areas: open space.
Imagine a world where lunchtime means foraging in your own neighborhood. Where city kids can have organic salads instead of Happy Meals. Better yet, these kids can eat the meals they helped to grow! As Ron puts it, “If kids grow kale, kids eat kale.”
We had the privilege of photographing Ron in his garden, which was an amazing experience. Thriving only begins to describe how much life is bursting from his sidewalk utopia. After the shoot he loaded us up with armfuls of greens and we got to experience firsthand the fruits of his labors. Did you know there was a mustard green that tastes exactly like wasabi? Neither did we!
People like Ron are making the world a better place, and inspiring others to do the same. The rest of us need to put our shovels where our mouths are and go “plant some shit!”
