Lifestyle Shoot with The Shirley May – DTLA

I know I already blogged her about it once already during Cherry Blossom Festival at Descanso Gardens – but I really enjoy shooting with her! Not only that, but Shirley May lives pretty close to me too so that helps, haha. Anyway, for this one Saturday afternoon we decided to just venture out into Downtown LA Arts District for some shots during golden hour. We ended up drinking a bit at Mumford Brewery because we got to LA a little earlier than we’d liked (for the golden hour). The brews were really good, and the shoot came out so amazing! Its really incredible how much stuff there is to explore so close to us. Really, part of the main reasons why I love LA.

Do you know any cool spots we can go crawl at? Shoot me a message, I’d love to know ­čÖé Enjoy some behind the scenes and some shots from this beautiful arts district of Los Angeles.

Haha. He’s actually a very good friend of mine, and a fellow Sony Alpha shooter. Honestly its so fun shooting with other people. Since this was a casual shoot, it made for a great DTLA crawl + shoot day. Any other LA photographers or models want to collaborate? Let me know! I am always down to explore the beautiful city for photographs.
