I had some electricians in at the time doing some work that took a whole lot longer than I expected, so we didn’t wind up using the studio part at all.
This was shot on the building’s fire escape:
And a few in my living room:
And then a few on the balcony, in front of a typical, bright Los Angeles sunset:
That final image was picked by one of my editors and appeared on iStockphoto’s homepage for a few months after that:
Thanks Ken! Let’s do it again!

She isn’t living the nomad life the way I have, but she recently moved from New York City to San Francisco to go to law school, with a stop in Los Angeles over the summer. Somehow, our travel schedules have randomly synced, and I’ve met up with her in all three cities.
A couple of weeks ago, she asked me if I wouldn’t mind taking photos of her for her body-positive/alternative-style fashion blog. Since I’ve been almost entirely shooting timelapses lately, I was excited about getting back into the habit of shooting portraits. All of my studio lighting gear is temporarily living with another photographer in Los Angeles while I travel, so the added challenge of being forced to shoot with only available light (and an underpowered hot-shoe flash) made it that much more interesting.
Armed with only a Canon 580EX and a 4′ by 4′ sheet of white foam core for a bounce, we set off to walk around the Mission and Potrero Hill.

The first few were taken in a cornfield in Western Wisconsin:
