Thanks again to Demi Lobo for having me to the best monthly daytime party in LA, Chicago Vs Everybody, bringing all that’s great about The Windy City to the West Coast.
The poppy fields have become a source of controversy as more and more people flock to post instagram-worthy shots in the flowers. I’ve done shoots in northern LA County for three years now and this was by far the worst behaved crowd I’ve seen so far. I really try to respect the trails, the flowers and the environment as a whole, but even I have to take stock of what my impact might be. This year, with Gigi we moved away from the crowds and tried to keep the lighting minimal—just let the sun do the work for us.
