For this series, I had the opportunity to spend a few days photographing the guys of The Forge, a photo studio/event/gallery space here in Los Angeles. On top of taking portraits of these handsome studs, I also documented the gorgeous space and the current renovation of their back studio.
The remodeled studio will have it’s first soft opening tonight at the All Visual LA + California Love show where I’ll be showing my new project Corolla. The studio won’t be completely finished for a while but come out and be the first to see what’s in store for the new studio!
