Venice Beach! One of my favorite places here in California. It is everything you imagine and more. A melting pot of artists and counter culture creatives, first dominated by the Beat generation, home to the legends of Dogtown and still a frontier of social change. Grant Flanagan held my hand on my first street portrait mission on the boardwalk with my then freshly purchased Hasselblad. I love all the people I got to meet here and the pictures they allowed me to capture. Everybody I met was super friendly and open to sharing their time and their truth. Street portraiture is one of my favorite types of photography- I love the spontaneity and the immediate trust that I get from the subjects, along with the variations of layers exposed or hidden by a character. Here are some of my first images taken in California.
