photographing my professors art show

In life you meet people who were destined to be apart of your life for some specific reason. I’ve encountered quite a few of those people- Dustin Harewood being one of them. Harewood is my Art Professor and has pushed be to grow artistically in ways I could never imagine. I’m producing work that far exceeds any artistic abilities I thought I had. On top of that, he’s such a heavy supporter of the local art community, particularly with young people.

Upon the reveal of his art show, he came to me in hopes of capturing these monumental moments. With no hesitation, I agreed. I was happy to, not only capture parts of this night for him, but to be apart of it all. To me, it was such an honor.

If you’d like to check out more of his work, here’s his website:

Made a spur of the moment road trip with Alexa and Lia with one intention in mind: stargazing. We brought along some pumpkins from Halloween and decided to smash them with a baseball bat until the sun set- it was extremely therapeutic. Upon night fall, we were blessed with skies of black velvet and diamonds. I was lucky enough to even capture the Milky Way Galaxy with a long exposure.

A large group of my friends and I flew out to Los Angeles to attend Camp Flog Gnaw: Tyler the Creator’s 2 day music festival. From late night adventures to sneaking into VIP & moshing to my favorite songs- I was on another level of happiness. I can’t help but smile when I look at these photographs, for they hold some of the best memories of my life; memories I’ll cherish forever.

Stumbled into Common while browsing through Barneys on Rodeo Drive & ran into Noah Dillon while exploring Luka Sabbat’s ‘Hot Mess’ exhibit. The gorgeous blonde gal (Cameron Rose) is the model used in the photographs!

Here’s some of Khalil’s film photographs:
(I’m so in love with how these came out- he did a lovely job as per usual)
