DieFast at the Viper Room

DieFast at the Viper Room

  It was one of those lazy nights but I hauled myself down to the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood for a late night photo assignment with my friend’s band DieFast (Junker owner Tod Waters), at the Viper Room. As expected it was loud and gnarly as all can be. The band was working with a split lineup of original members, returning members and a fill in on guitar from Chris of Beasto Blanco. Fast and loud rocknroll permeated the walls of the Johnny Depp owned establishment like it was…

Photo Story: Roy’s in Amboy

Photo Story: Roy’s in Amboy

  On a recent shooting trip in California’s Mojave Desert, my colleague and I stopped off at Roy’s in Amboy on our way back from the Kelso Dunes. It was really hot that day and we needed a cold drink for the rest of drive home. I’d been by there a couple times but hadn’t stopped to have a closer look until this particular day.   For many years I’ve been a huge fan of “Googie-ish” 50’s style architecture, and even though Roy’s opened in 1938 and named for its…

Photo Session: We Start Wars

Photo Session: We Start Wars

  There’s a new band in town! I recently had the opportunity to photograph LA band We Start Wars. Featuring Nita Strauss of Alice Cooper, Alicia Vigil of Vigil of War/She Demons, Seana, Nicole Papastavrou, Katt Scarlett of Femme Fatale and Lindsay Martin, we had a fantastic day of shooting. The day required a few setups both indoors and out. Posing 6 people at once was a challenge at times, but everything worked out great in the end.   The main promo photo was shot on a red seamless background…

Insta Marketing: Limeade Comedy Photos

Insta Marketing: Limeade Comedy Photos

Recently, I was introduced to comedian Lahna Turner by a friend of mine. For the upcoming release of her new video album ‘Limeade’ that just so happened to be coming out on the same day as the new ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ movie, Lahna was wanting to shoot a ‘Fifty Shades of Lime’ marketing campaign for Instagram. She had a few thoughts on what it was she wanted to shoot for the campaign, and we ended up collaborating on a long list of ideas that ranged from snarky to sexy to…

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

It’s been a long wait and after all the reviews have come in, the comments are all very similar. What’s the point? That’s really the consensus. I’m a die hard Canon fan from way back. I’ve never even considered using a Nikon camera. But even after all the years that the 5D series has been around, I’ve never wanted to own one. Functionality in a camera is important, but price is important as well. Why spend $3500 on a camera body that you’ll immediately have to spend more money on,…

Production Notes: Shooting in the Outer Hebrides

Production Notes:  Shooting in the Outer Hebrides

  From late August to early September of this year, I once again spent two weeks on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides working on content pieces for the television show that I’ve been developing with friend and colleague David Jackson for the last few years.   The trip began with the stunning Scottish weather that we’ve all come to love by looking at postcards and coffee table books. A few days later however, the battle of the elements was on. As stunning as our remote location in…

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

  KFSTV is a new internet TV station started by Tim Woodward of Skin Two just this year. Within KFSTV you will find documentaries, feature films, fashion, interviews and nightlife coverage. After noticing there was room for experimental content, I submitted a short movie I made a couple years back called Nylon Commander. Shortly after, Tim got back to me and the next day I had my own film makers page on the site.   I won’t give away the details of the movie I submitted, but if you have…

Photo Story: Shots Fired from a Digital Machine

Photo Story: Shots Fired from a Digital Machine

A couple Fridays ago I headed downtown to do a quick photo shoot with Jessica Nicole of Peepshow Clothing and local LA fashion model Erin Kennedy (@theerinkennedy). It was a quick and easy setup, one white wall and one photo strobe with a softbox. After a series of homemade tacos and guacamole to fuel up, it was time for the shoot. Oh, and don’t forget cocktails mixed by @rocknrollbartenders. Jessica had prepared some new pieces including custom designed fringe dresses featuring the graphics of David Bowie (Ziggy Stardust) and Marilyn…
