Recently I had another gig in Beverly Hills in Holmby Park
It took a long time to labor my way up in the fashion photography world to be laboring a gig in Beverly Hills, plus I wouldn’t have believed it if you told myself and others years ago. I was a lowly magazine photographer in a forgotten neighborhood in the midwest. Some of my first gigs were garnered through contacts I met while both of us were in my time in art university. But I had a lot of other photographers my age to compete with when it comes to available gigs in that neighborhood in particular. Once you’ve taken ceremony photos for the thoUSndth time, it starts to get old entirely abruptly. I was also taking portraits for high university seniors plus that was bringing in a little bit of cash as well. However, my true cut came when I was able to shoot photos for a band that was coming through my neighborhood to play a gig. I went to the show plus took some shots that got the band leader excited. After he featured them on his social media page plus credited myself and others as the photographer, I had so many calls plus emails coming in that I couldn’t keep up. After a year or so of growing demand, I took a leap of faith plus moved out to Los Angeles, CA with my best friend. The two of us got an house in Culver City but I almost immediately started laboring as an assistant on photo shoots in Beverly Hills. I remember a photoshoot at a studio on Sunset Boulevard where I met the guy who would supply myself and others the rest of my gigs in my time in Los Angeles. Recently I had another gig in Beverly Hills in Holmby Park. I stopped at a cannabis dispensary off Alden Dr beforehand but I didn’t use any of my products before heading to my photoshoot. I can’t risk getting too high before heading to labor or I could lose my task.
