My second trip to Los Angeles during this summer, Emily and I coordinated another shoot for my return. We acquired this dope rooftop with a pool in downtown LA as the location of our shoot. This is our second time shooting together and this time around, our schedule was on point. Having a good team during a shoot makes a big difference of the efficiency.

So the last time I was in Vegas, Gerra and I met up to shoot. She took me to this dope alcohol milk shake place before we were going to shoot. I asked her to take us to the Vegas that most people haven’t seen before for the location of our shoot. We went to downtown Vegas, outside of the strip. This is the shots we came up with:

Rhea came to me with an idea for a shoot before I left for NY. She wanted to do a baseball themed shoot. She brought the props and got Ashley Resurreccion in to duo with her too. I’d say this was one of the funnest shoots I did all summer. It also might have something to do with us cracking open a bottle of Patron at 9AM in the morning, but you know that’s fun too.

God Bless America. San Jose Japantown’s Aristocrat Boutique. The founding store of the block life. It was dope when I heard news that I will be shooting their USA gun ‘A’ tank and with a model of my casting. For this shoot I called Eliza Tee. I’ve known her for awhile, bumping into her casually during social gatherings [parties and clubs haha] but we never really got a chance to work together. We shot at a random construction supply area that we climbed into, the Aristocrats Boutique and at the Halloway Store.
Check out my selfie at the Aristocrats Boutique. Ha.
That American Flag at the Halloway Store is dope as fuck.
