December 8, 2016
Spontaneous photoshoot for the cover to GYYPS' sophomore project "Darryl: A Mixtape by GYYPS." We were inspired by the Schoolzones cover art, with a goal of shooting a cover that achieved a grittier aesthetic when compared to Canoga Park EP. I think we actually surprise released the project immediately after deciding on a final photo for the album art.

Behind-the-scenes for the official music video of Felly's "Gorilla," featuring GYYPS. Video directed by CJ Barbato & Jack Craymer, produced by myself. This was a really cool one, we were actually inspired by the absurdity of the debates running up to the Republican Primary. I feel like it holds even more weight now after viewing the debates that aired before the presidential election.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Jack Craymer, Bella, Malin, Nikki, Danny, Jamie, Love & Trey.

We had a pretty busy September this year. Shoutout Archie at University Hype for booking us this small show in DTLA. To date, this is the only real LA show that Felly and GYYPS have played, although the upcoming date at the El Rey in January should be a good time. We literally broke the floor. Sheesh. We felt really lit afterwards, CJ did some backflips and there was a random minivan with the door open right outside the Courts. Oh, we also filmed a music video via snapchats for GYYPS' "Canoga Park," before/during/after this show, but sadly the video never saw the light of day. Maybe we'll drop it on y'all one day.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Danny, CJ & Zac Jones.

Why did I bring my camera to a party at ski snow? I have like 0 recollection of my reasoning, but we had a good time and I believe REL played a set. Don't sleep.

August 3 - 12, 2015
Spent a week in Maui, Hawaii and San Francisco. I actually had my first phone call with Tyler Blatchley, from RED, while on this vacation. Hawaii is one of the coolest places 'in' the United States, as is San Francisco.
July 28, 2016
Got to spend a day with Grizfolk at Capitol Records, concluding with a short show at the Redbury.
July 17 - 19, 2015

Stills from a short film my team was assigned to create for a summer film class at USC. The film concerned an astronaut sent to an alien planet in order to discern if humanity could relocate, due to the decaying state of Earth. I would tell you the ending, but I don't want to spoil it for you.
Featuring: Brandon, Jason, Amelia, Christian & Robert.
July 4, 2015
Probably one of the most enjoyable days of my life. Drove down to Hermosa Beach to meet up with Riley and his friends from highschool. Fel and GYYPS ended up meeting us out there, along with Fel's cousins and we really sent it. The house down the street happened to be playing "Probation." Good times. Also, where did my denim Supreme hat go? I need that.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Caroline & Riley.

Shoutout Mind, Body & Beats for promoting our first real show. We actually got to fly out to SLC for this one, headlining, which was awesome. Great vibes in SLC, Tuwan's parents are lit.

Negly Park in Camp Hill with Matt. Testing out my 35mm lens. Sometimes Harrisburg is okay.

Behind-the-scenes of the official music video for "Dope4Yall," directed by myself. I had a train to catch, and about 25 minutes of free time, so we decided to drive over to sasco beach, prop the camera on a tripod and catch the kids hanging out in the thunderstorm. Some of my favorite self-made visuals to date, I think. I don't want to die all alone.
Featuring: Felly & Carol.
May 30, 2015
Behind-the-scenes of the official music video for Felly's "White" directed by Jack Craymer and myself. While not our most successful music video, I have to say that I have had more people tell me this video has impacted their life positively compared to any of our other work. Small things.
Featuring: Felly & Jack.
May 24, 2015
Breezy and I drove up the road to Pinchot to grab a few shots for fun. I played around with the shade a bit, the results were eh, but still some nice greens that we don't get out in LA very often.
May 15, 2015
Behind-the-scenes of the official music video for Felly's "Don't Change," directed by Jack Craymer and myself. This is a personal favorite video, PV is one of the dopest places to shoot. Hiking with all the camera equipment was hell, though, definitely could use some better planning in the future. I love this place.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Nik, May & Jack Craymer.

Quick shot of the two car garage. Canoga.

What a day. We didn't end up leaving for the beach until around 2PM, on Valentine's Day, which was dumb. It took us about 2.5 hours to make it to Venice (like 10 miles??) and there was no parking, so we ended up leaving our cars in the Venice Public Library lot. In our defence, the lot claims that it's open until sunset, but we returned to our cars around like 6PM and the security had already closed the gate. Birdie + Us sat around in the lot for an hour, waiting for the guard that wanted $75 from each car leaving, to open the gate, before one of the other 30 groups trapped in the lot decided to off road their card down the sidewalk. We ended up parallel parking into the archway in front of the library and then driving straight off the sidewalk into rush hour traffic. What a time. I hope the schemey security guard trekked all the way back after everyone had escaped.
Featuring: Jamie, Sarah, JJ & Zoë.
