FLYING LOTUS AND THUNDERCAT

Red Bull Music Academy Festival LA Presents: Flying Lotus and Thundercat at Hollywood Forever cemetery. 

Yup, this show was at a cemetery and it was pretty rad and trippy! Flying Lotus has been one of my fav acts to photograph throughout my career and I have to say this new 3D set up is awesome. I wish I could show you more photos but these are the ones that have been approved by his managment so far! 

FORM at Arcosanti

What if I told you that there's an intimate music and arts festival that you have to apply to by writing an essay? What if I told you that this festival takes place at a magical urban laboratory in the Arizona desert called Arcosanti? There's been a handful of projects in my career where I've asked myself, how did I get this lucky?! This one right here is one of them. 

Zedd + Alessia Cara / "Stay" Merch

Zedd and Alessia Cara have a new single out called "Stay" and I got to photograph their lifestyle campaign for the song's merchandise! We went to Manhattan Beach to shoot and nothing could have prepared us for how windy and cold it was that day. It was probably one of my most challenging shots that I've done lately... hair flying all over the place, clothes flying all over the place, super cold and unhappy models... But hey, we pulled it off and everyone is happy now! 

Models: Cristina and Roman  Stylist: Dianne Galindo

Zedd Presents: WELCOME

I shot this fundraiser concert for ACLU ( American Civil Liberties Union) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night. It felt good to be part of an event where people are raising their voice against the current government in the US. As an immigrant, a minority and a woman, I feel very strongly about this cause. 

The line up was super stacked: Zedd, Skrillex, Incubus, Miguel, Mija, Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello, Daya, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Machine Gun Kelly, Macklemore & Tinashe. 

This was such a trip to shoot because all the artists played small sets (15-20min),  and they just kept coming on stage one after another very quickly. Also, this venue is pretty big so running around to get different angles is always a challenge.  

Ok, here's some of the shots! Bye for now! :) 

FORM Labs presents James Blake, Hundred Waters, Moses and David Moore

Oh my. This was a super intimate preview concert for the upcoming festival FORM and it was totally magical! It was very hard to shoot because you could hear a pin drop and people were sitting down and very focused, so it was hard for me to move and shoot without interrupting the show. 

Every performance was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Every time James started singing I died a little bit inside. Me and everyone else! 

Can't wait to get to shoot the actual festival in May. If you're a music lover, you should check it out here: http://experienceform.com/
