Life is a roller costar of events some good some bad. I always think about how that one decision you make can affect the rest of your life. Some how I met my friend Cary Perez and since then it has opened up so many doors for me. The entire Down Town LA Project is a direct effect of this. There is no way I would have got the asses to shoot all these people in such a short time. I would of ever been able to even bring my camera it to this club. Cary has a way with people that you rarely see it is amazing. People trust him from the moment they meet him. He is the type of person that all was makes time to help people out. His range of friend goes from CEO’ s at Apple computers to a bum living on the streets. My point is after meeting him this project was born I just wanted to say thanks homie!
Cary (the guy in the hat) is giving me direction as if an art director would. The funny thing is his direction is better that a lot of the art directors I have worked with. My friend Chris Sanchez shot this while we were taking a brake from shooting. I don’t often see my self in photos as I'm working by looking at this image I can see how intense this shoot was for me. I feel like there is a switch were I go in to another mode when I put a camera in my hands. This was interesting for me to see from an out side prospective.
