VIDEO // Nathan Mitchell on the streets of DTLA

I’m immediately enthralled by the display of talent and vision in this breathtakingly raw video, featuring our seasoned dancer/model, Nathan Mitchell.  He and friend, Phillip Lopez, capture a beautiful interaction between dancer and camera against the grimy back drop that is 5am on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles, and it’s left everyone in a little bit of a hypnotic haze.

Here is “Fred Astair with a Stomach Full of Corn Chips and Valium” by Phillip Lopez.

Photogenics supports Animals Asia #BearRelief

Man, do we have the most wonderful models ever! Photogenics alum, Shaina Danziger, (model/author/activist) has spent the last four and a half months channeling her talent and energy towards a cause not many of us knew existed.  The campaign, featuring Anthony Keidis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Moby, Duff McKagan, Steve O and Matt Lucas, aims to raise awareness for an Animal Rights group based out of Hong Kong called Animals Asia which is an organization that is working tirelessly to put an end to both the cruel and horrific practice of bear bile farming as well as the cat and dog meat trade. The campaign has already been featured by NY Daily News, Vogue Italia, and Conde Nast Live.


And if the campaign photo doesn’t already tug on our heart strings enough, the campaign video, written and directed by Shaina herself, should do the trick!  With a clever tagline “Let a Bear Shit in the Woods,” the campaign is a satirical PSA which Shaina hopes will grab the attention of animal lovers worldwide.  It was a no-brainer for us! Check out the campaign including Photogenics models, Courtney Money, Therese Tabbert, and Giavanna Witted.

Ganna & Steve in “DRUGS” by Dream Stretcher

A Big Thank you to our friends Ganna and Steve for lending their talents for a very special music project I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of called Dream Stretcher.  Driving out to Joshua Tree with 4 friends and a camera to film a music video for a song that means something incredibly real to me…well, it was really the only way to go.

This is “Drugs” directed by Ryan Valdez

ASPEN in a film by Gizelle Hernandez

This film by Gizelle Hernandez featuring our alien beauty Aspen is a visual feast for those of us who crave the strange and unpredictable shapes fashion can take on.  I usually gravitate towards dark and moody vibes, but how refreshing it is to see color and whimsy for a change!  It’s Alice [as in Wonderland] coming undone in her own crazy fantasy, and we looooove it.  Bravo to all involved! Job well done.

“Sinking Stone” by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused

This video directed by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused is sort of fitting for a Halloween Friday.  It’s a dark and twisty Bonnie & Clyde story.  There’s blood.  There’s a scary corn-rowed, jersey, grilled-out, gold chained twin brother villain duo chasing two attractive yet troubled teens through a dizzying tripped out nightmare set to a beautiful track by GEMS called “Sinking Stone.”  In other words, it’s F*cking FANTASTIC!!!

Best yet, it features our very own Krystall Schott, the ultimate model/author Kris Kidd, and Harmony Kourine’s claimed ATL Twins.  Click the image below to check out the video on including a little interview with the directors.
