“I never seem to be in LA for very long these days… My most recent trip was a spur of the moment adventure to Utah for Sundance! I literally felt like I was in a snow globe. We’re so deprived of a winter in Los Angeles. I loved waking up and breathing in the fresh crisp air while feeling my nose turn cold. I traveled outside of Park City to meet some horses, check out the motels, and admire the beautiful scenery on the road.”
So, to catch you all up, I spent the holidays in Israel and had the most amazing time. You can see more of my Israeli adventures on my blog The Girl Habit: Home Away From Home, If You’re a Bird, I’m a Bird, In her Raen’s, and Dizingof
When I finally returned from Israel a couple weeks ago, of course the first thing I did was go see my girl Kelley Ash! We did a lil photo shoot at her place and around Silverlake, and then hit up a new photo exhibit at Space 15 Twenty on Cahuenga Boulevard featuring Photogenics’ very own Steve Lee! I’m always excited to see Steve. He probably thinks I’m a weirdo because I cant stop smiling when I’m around him. He kind of has that effect.
I just recently shot a short film for Monster Children [magazine] with Photogenics models Torian, Brianna F, and Dakota recently. The story was about a group of friends and their adventures which take place in part at a motel in Koreatown where things get a little crazy. Director and photographer Mike Piscitelli was so rad to work with, and I love hanging out with the Photogenics crew. In that same week I hung out with Dani Lundquist and Valerie V. for Halloween! Always fun times with Photogenics.
Friday the 2nd was the opening of “Everyone’s a Photographer” Exhibit at the Lomography store on Santa Monica Blvd. I threw on my vintage Van Halen tee and vintage Giorgio Armani black skirt for the evening. The exhibit features the work of my friends Chad Muska, Corey Smith, and Jason Lee Parry, along with photographers Jared Everhardt, Jeremy & Claire Weiss, Natas Kaupas, Ian Ruhter, Danny Zapalac, and Laura Austin. I always have the best time at these kinds of events. Tons of friends from the industry and lots of beer is not a bad way to spend a friday night in LA if, you ask me. Afterwards, I hit up one of my favorite bars, The Thirsty Crow in Silverlake. I would definitely recommend checking out the exhibit while it’s still around. -Leore-
I’m sitting here at the agency coming down from a crazy whirlwind of a Halloween weekend…tired and drained from 3 days of crazy fun and hard work. Even though the “Case of the Mondays” is really taking a toll on my psyche, I’m still super jazzed because today is the day I get to announce the newest addition to our Photogenics Contributors: my girl, LEORE HAYON of The Girl Habit.
I’ve just recently gotten to know Leore as more than just a model we rep. She’s a down ass chick who will go to a Grizzly Bear show with you at the drop of a hat and dance her ass off with you at her own birthday party at the Spare Room. She’ll be giving us a little peak into the very essence of LA Culture as she sees it; the fashion, music, art, and people that make LA such a rad place to be young, wild, and free.
So, stay tuned for Leore’s very first post and check her out in the latest Stussy x Lovemade promo: Heartbeat City
