I’ve been the in-house photographer for The Hollywood Patch House since it opened earlier this year. When a touring band or artist passes through LA and stays at the house, I come by for a quick, fun photoshoot. The pictures then go up on social media for the artist, as well as for The Sour Patch Kids brand. It's a great opportunity to create new content, meet new people, and develop my skills as a photographer.
On July 3, MAX was staying at The Patch House. Super cool and talented guy (check out his latest music video "Basement Party" here). Upstairs there’s a studio with a very large window. For this first one, I drew the thin, white curtain over to diffuse the light, then simply angled him for a rembrandt-esque lighting look (not too contrasty). I really like how these two turned out!
