Andrew Sexton// Portraits of Friends// Set 10

Andrew Sexton is a hell of an artist. He does awesome, crazy intricate drawings and amazing sculptures. I like hanging around Andrew because he has a weird Canadian accent, has a great moustache, and he likes to laugh. He's also missing a tooth, but I don't know the story behind that. I'm pretty sure he loves his mother too.

Life After Denim just released their Holiday '09 line. I shot their lookbook and as usual it's great menswear. Dress snappy for the holidays.

Danielle Garza// Portraits of Friends// Set 9

Ellie is a lovely young lady. We've shared many good times together. She works in downtown LA, in the 10th tallest building in the city. She always promised to take me on the roof so I could spit off the edge, but that has yet to happen. She is a very talented seamstress, writer, and artist. She also has a blog called, Subliminal Messages, that she updates quite often with great stories and trippy pictures.

Charlie Staunton// Portraits of Friends// Set 8

Charlie is a class act. I don't think I know a single person that doesn't like him, nor have I ever heard an ill word spoken of Mr. Staunton. He's an old fashioned thrill seeker and a founder of fun. He enjoys the finer things that life has to offer and is quite gracious with those offerings as well. One word of advice, don't fuck with Chuck.

Willow Springs Raceway.

I went out to Willow Springs earlier this year with some friends to watch the Moto Classica. I felt like I was in 3 or 4 scenes from "On Any Sunday", it was amazing. I totally forgot about these photos, until today, when I was going through my hard drives.

Garvan Cavanagh// Portraits of Friends// Set 7

Garvan is one of a kind. He's from Delaware or Rhode Island, East Coast something. He works as a moped messenger, but usually keeps it looked up on The Alley and walks to all the high rises in Century City. He loves hip hop and reggae, especially R. Kelly and old Vanilla Ice. I remember the first time I met him, he had a picture of Slick Rick on his Moped Army profile, but I didn't realize it was Slick Rick. I thought Garv was black and wore an eye patch. So when I finally met him I was (and still am) disappointed that he wasn't a rad black dude with an glittery eye patch. Garv also loves his mother very much. I like Garo the Magnificent.

Brendan Mullen. 1949-2009

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Brendan Mullen 2 years ago at the 30th anniversary of The Masque punk rock club and book release party. I found out today that he passed away on Monday.
He basically started the punk scene in LA in the '70's by giving bands like X, The Germs, The Dickies, and many more a venue to play at. As well as continuing on after The Masque, by promoting bands throughout LA and writing a few books. The LA Times wrote a nice obituary for him. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Brian Sowell// Portraits of Friends// Set 5

Brian Sowell is the most evil person on Earth. When he smiles, it's the most evil smile on Earth. He has a van, it's the most evil van on Earth. He has a dog, Natas, she is the most evil dog on Earth.
Aside from all his evil, doomy ways Brian is an extremely talented photographer and plays a mean bass guitar. I like Brian.
