Nerd alert: I modified some of my @actioncam parts to create this custom mount for my Bell Bullitt. Mounts directly to the existing thread for the shield, without affecting any functionality. #actioncam #bullitt

Sad to hear that Ricky the Pirate has passed away… He was my favorite part of living in downtown LA. I invited him into my apartment for some lunch one day and he let me film him “freestyling”.

Super fun collaboration I photographed with Kelly Framel of The Glamourai, for Furla. Starring Vlada from Silent Models NYC. Love! 

Stopped by my mechanic’s shop yesterday in NYC and met this very cool fellow West Coast transplant. Style for days, and a 1967 Bonneville to match.

A huge happy birthday to a great man, husband, and father, the hardest working photographer I know, an inspiring friend and mentor, and the closest thing to a brother I’ve ever had, @josephllanes

Went to see the hilarious Mike Birbiglia last night, was served beer by Mike Birbiglia before his own show. An “only in New York” moment for sure.

Unexpectedly seeing your own work out in the world never gets old. Watching some tube this AM and my image of Aloe Blacc made a cameo.

This dude was rapping on my subway car yesterday… The lyrics were heartfelt and dark, and as I listened I realized they were genuinely well-written and smart. The guy’s delivery was powerful and honestly a bit intimidating (everyone on the subway shifting uncomfortably and looking away). When he finished I asked to take his portrait, and he threw back his hoodie and gave me this face, and ended up being kind, enthusiastic, and charming. I wish I could remember his name. Somebody sign this kid.

Just found this dope little tearsheet collection for a shoot idea I had a while back. Time to get this one rolling again. Can you tell what makeup I like? Smokey eyes, nude lips, all day er’ day. (at The 198)
