The Common Kings (Outtakes)

These are some of the photos and outtakes from the Common Kings interview for Huffington Post and sound check shoot.  Big thanks to the Yamadas, the Kings, and especially Pele Bennett for being the 2nd photog. ( If you like her work, please contact me and I can get you in contact with her.)

It was a great way to end 2014 and begin 2015.

Los Angeles: One Hour in Melrose

This past weekend I had the opportunity to network and meet some great folks.  It was a hectic schedule.  It was jampacked with meetings and networking and providing my client with some event coverage.  It was really a crazy time.  In the middle of it all, I visited the folks over at Izzi as they partnered up with the new Instagram (as a platform, not as the company) curated magazine. 

The cool part about meeting those cats organizing all of it, is that they gave a lot of respect to "We Are Juxt."  They told me that it was because of that collective that they learned the ropes.  They watched us with our hashtag campaigns, showcases, stories, photowalks...they watched and learned and more importantly, built on it to keep it relevant to an age group/demographic that normally doesn't work with the Grryo collective.

Again it was real nice to know that they saw in us what they would like to do.  They saw the direction we took and focused on it.  

Either way, I had some free time and decided I was going to walk Melrose until I had to be back into meetings and networking.  My latest page has been updated with some of the photos I took during that time.

Rebel Souljahz - Jazz Bones, Tacoma

I absolutely love island reggae.  Seriously.  Although it was an attempt to interview the band (hard to wrangle individuals in a band I guess), it ended well with just being able to watch the guys perform from the stage vantage point.  These brothas sure know how to rock a crowd. Big up Souljaz Massive.
