Down in Tulum, Mexico shooting another job for Free People. I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful this place is! Scouting for locations today we were all in total awe. I can't believe that places like this exist but am grateful that they do. We are staying at an eco resort right on the beach! (That's the photo of it above). If you ever get a chance to come down this way, do. There is something very magical about it.
Hope everyone is well!

Starting to hear the complaints of friends back east about it getting cold... Made me think of snow and winter and how I don't really get to experience that now that I live in LA. Thought of these photos and the snow ball fights we had. Though, in all honesty, it's pretty nice being warm all the time. Well, except at night when you have to have two blankets instead of one. Randy Newman said it best "I LOVE LA--- WE LOVE IT!"

I came across this little book of drawings called "SAD ANIMALS" by Adam Meuse and was immediately won over by it. I stood in the bookstore laughing out loud for a good five minutes. I scanned my favorite little owl so you can get an idea of what's in there. Not sure where you can get them in other parts of the country but in Los Angeles, you can get your own copy at SKYLIGHT BOOKS on Vermont in Los Feliz. (You should just go there anyway and check out the new art/photo/rad annex next door. It's my favorite place to go these days. So much inspiration in one little store). OR you can email Adam at the email he has listed in the book: firstname.lastname@example.org
I think I've bought about 12 of these by now as gifts. So good!

Above is a still from one of my favorite movies of all times. Obviously I didn't take the photo though it would of been a dream of mine to shoot stills on a movie as great as this. It's called THE FALL (no, it's not about the band!). It was filmed in over 23 countries, mostly on the directors dime. He would often piggy back shooting at the same time he was shooting a commercial job. Some of the shots are just breathtaking and done without the use of CGI. I watched it three times in the theater and was blown away each time- both for it's imagery and story telling... please check out the trailer here:
THE FALL TRAILER
I only wish more movies were being made like this!!!

Photo wise, there has been a ton going on over the last few months... Heading to Tulum, Mexico next week for another shoot with Free People. Looking forward to seeing all of them as well as the Mayan Ruins I've heard so much about! Working hard on another issue of THREE RECORDS zine in which I have friends name Three records that have changed or inspired their lives.
Hmmm, here's a little interview that Matt Rubin over at rubinrecommends.com did with me!
While on the subject, here's another interview that I did with the wonderful folks over at Def Jux records. Lots of talk of photography and Aesop Rock. Two great things.
