Location Scouting for Volume 4

Shooting for our fourth volume was a great experience. For past issues we mostly shot inside of people's shops, garages, or even just their driveways. Everyone in Vol. 4 took to our hankering for getting their cars out on the road to places they wanted to share. In case anyone is wondering the location of many of the shoots for this magazine, here's a short list:

1. Jack Carroll: Griffith Park & the historic Los Angeles Zoo.... now used for Hollywood sets and  (while we were there that morning) group yoga on the grass.
2. Billy Branch: El Sereno & Boyle Heights. This guy has pride in his city and it's really admirable.
3. "A June Morning, Pasadena" featuring Robert Lomas & Marion Bledsoe: Suicide Bridge off of Colorado Blvd.
4. Nick Osborne: Chantry Flats & a church off of Sierra Madre Blvd.
5. Mike Kelley: Terminal Island Fwy in Long Beach.
