Eric Bellinger DESTROYS Yeezy Red Octobers

TThis week I was on set for the new music video by singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger and rapper 2Chainz. The all-day-video-shoot consisted of many celebrities stopping by – including Tyrese, Kid Ink, Mally Mal, Mya and more.

For one of the pool side scenes, Eric decided to jump in while wearing his Nike Air Yeezy Red Octobers! I couldn’t believe what I saw on set, so i made sure to take lots of pictures and a video! Check it out below


Thru The Lens: Episode 4 – Day in the Life of Nick Young

THUMB_072214_

TThis was the first episode I ever filmed for my web series, Thru the Lens. Nick Young had just returned home from his season in Philadelphia and was getting ready for the summer of free agency. He went on to be signed by the LA Lakers and has become one of the most lovable players in LA. In this episode, we follow not just Nick, but his assistant Adrian (aka Big Meat). This duo had me laughing non stop throughout the entire day. This webseries is made to give a more intimate look into the lives of some of your favorite athletes and entertainers. Instead of looking at the life of someone, I invite you to spend a day alongside them. This episode has everything from a sneak peak of Nick’s shoe collection, what he eats for breakfast, taking a trip to visit his parents, walking through USC and a hilarious bet at the end to figure out if the In N Out in Hollywood is closer to LaBrea or Highland. Check out the episode below and let me know your thoughts! More episodes coming soon!

Drew League Week 08 – Saturday: Brandon Jennings scores 57 points!

TThe week has finally come – NBA players are officially in free agency and are allowed to played in the summer leagues – The anticipation on Saturday to see who would show up was in full effect! NBA legend and Drew League regular, Baron Davis, started off the morning playing with Cheaters. NWA took on Cheaters 2 for an exciting match – including the NWA duo of Jonathan Gibson and Charles Garcia going against Cheaters 2 with big men Ryan Watkins and Kenny Lawson Jr. The came the biggest game of the day – The Clozers vs Sole Clinics. Austin Daye and Brandon Jennings teamed up with Marcus Williams for Clozers, while Derrick Williams and Stanley Johnson teamed up for Sole Clinics. It was a great matchup between the two teams. Brandon Jennings started hitting a lot of really crazy jumpers and it just continued…he was unstoppable. By the end of the game, Brandon finished with nearly 60 points! Also seeing Stanley Johnson go up against NBA guys is truly amazing – he is NBA ready right now! The Clozers took the win 107 – 84. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of the summer goes now with the mixture of NBA talent among the teams! Check out the photo gallery below

DJ Wells celebrates his birthday from downtown LA rooftop

The sounds of DJ Wells can be heard throughout some of the biggest events in Los Angeles. He is not only a talented DJ but also a sneaker head with quite an impressive collection! (You’ll never see him in public without rocking some dope kicks). He celebrated his 32nd birthday in downtown LA with family and friends. I’ve worked with Wells for a while now and I had the pleasure of capturing his birthday party! See all of the fun in the gallery below

Drew League Fashion: Week 01

I‘m introducing a new section to spice up the Drew League photography I have – I’ll be including posts every week displaying fashion around the Drew League – From Athletes, to staff and more!

This year the Drew League revealed a new design for their jerseys – Each team had the opportunity to chose a team color. The “home” jerseys say “Drew League” in the front, while the “away” jerseys say the team name. The Game’s team, La Familia, has a jersey set unique to any other team. So far we have only seen one color way – a black jersey with gold writing saying “La Familia”. Once their alternative jerseys are revealed, I’ll be sure to post a picture of those as well. Aside from the variety of jerseys, you can find a unique style of fashion, from head to toe. Sneakers are one of the biggest expressions at these games – seeing what “heat” these players will bring out is always a surprise.

My favorite mix is the return of the “Drew Crew” shirts. During the 2011 season, the drew league staff members would rock the “Drew Crew” shirts. This year, with Nike in the mix, they created a new design for these shirts for the staff to wear.

Because this is the first post, it will just be a teaser – next week we will come full force with even more content, so stay tuned!
