Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn cover shoot

Here is the cover for Entertainment Weekly with Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn shot by Art Streiber.

It was a crazy, tiring but fun shoot. Heidi and Tim were really fun. There is also a shot of Chris Allen in this issue which I helped out on as well. Its a great picture of Chris on the street with a billboard of himself in the background. Go buy the magazine and check it out as well as more shots from the Heidi shoot.

and also a little behind the scenes video shot by access hollywood.

New Vampire Movie with William Defoe and Ethan Hawke and its got Isabel Lucas the other hot chick from Transformers II.


Yesterday I got called in to help out on a shoot down on the venice board walk. We were shooting T.R. Knight who I guess is best known for his role in Greys Anatomy. He is a really nice guy, super chill and really laid back. The broadwalk was a little crowded even at 1030 in the morning so we ended up shooting on speedway, one street up from the broadwalk.

We were shooting in a great little studio called Focus. The space is really nice and the owner also has a cafe/restaurant next door so they catered the shoot with amaaaazing food, some of the best catering I've had since I've been out here. If youre down on the board walk go and grab a bite to eat at DeliziaAddress:. They have some great food and fantastic people working there.

I still havent had a chance to walk all the way down the broadwalk during the day with all the little shops and crazy people! Yesterday after the shoot some of us just hung out at the cafe and chatted and I couldnt believe the amount of people that were out. Pretty cool, but I would hate to live right on the boardwalk with the amount of people and noise all day.

Well today I got up early cleaned my apt then did some errands on my bike. I rode over to Denim Revival to pick up my jeans that were being fixed and they did an absolutely great job. I had a tear in the crotch, in the fabric not just a seam and they fixed it up for me and even reinforced some areas that looked thin. Really cool place, I need to go back by and look at jackets! After that I rode over to sole provider on Larchmont to look for some new sneaks but I couldnt find a pair that jumped out at me so I wandered around the larchmont area and found myself at PinkBerry trying their new summer flavors! Sooo good and I even got a couple coupons for free parfaits! After Larchmont I rode over to Ralphs to pick up some detergant and now I'm back home waiting on my laundry to get done!

Feeling a little nostalgic

So today on my usual peruse through the intraweb I read a few posts from JM at Worth Your While, and I became very homesick. it is indeed time to find an english pub and an english store here in LA. I really want some Hulu Hoops, Twiglets, Rowntrees Fruit gums, a sherbet fountain, a box of Maltesers and a bottle of Ribena! Thats what I'm really craving right now and mabye a good toad in the hole and some sticky toffee pudding!

Well a cup of tea and some marmite on toast will have to do!


these guys make me laugh!

hanging in LA

In these how should i put it slow economic times or I dont have a job times, I'm looking out for good deals. The best deal is an apple and a sandwich for lunch and chicken pasta for dindin every day but other than that I've been looking for a good happy hour in my new city of LA. Ive been meaning to go to the Edison in Downtown LA for a while now. It is basically an old power plant, the decor and even the absinthe fairies bring a real old time feel. I recently found out they have Friday "soup kitchen" Happy Hour where you can get 35 cent cocktails and free grilled cheese and soup. That sounds like a screaming deal if you ask me!

Then in between where I live and Culver there is a place called The Mandrake where during happy hour you can get a PBR and a Whiskey chaser for 5 bones. (or a shot of whiskey with a PBR for a chaser) I'm always on the look out for a good happy hour!

You can get $2.50 millers at Big Wangs when The Lakers are playing and on tuesdays its $3 margs and $1 tacos

I've also been on the hunt for a Denim Repair place to get a favorite pair tended to and there happens to be a denim specialist 5 minutes away. I'm going to drop my jeans off tomorrow and hopfully get them back after my DC trip next week.


Love this site! Scans of Sandwiches from around New York

This site makes me soooo hungry

Two Day Shoot at CBS

Working on a shoot at CBS studios with Art Streiber. Pretty cool place. Biggest photo set I've been on. Got there this morning to a huge empty warehouse/stage and left with a living room/kitchenette set, a rec room set, and a huge seamless set up, all lit perfectly and ready to go for tomorrow. Loads of fun setting up with all of the crew. Met some great guys who built up the rooms. I'll take a shot of the set up tomorrow to show how crazy awesome it was. Tomorrow we shoooot. I do get to sleep in though! Call time isnt till 10! Fantastic! Arts crew is always fantastic.
