It all started when I saw a few images on Facebook. I kept watching after I had made a connection with his page. He made a connection with my page and sent me a request to photograph me. I was cool with that so we set a time and made it happen. It was like a weekend or something and he came by in that part of the day when the sun was making its descent. We didn’t have much time and I was on my way to Pasadena after we finished up!
We didn’t think we would get too much but so happens the photos were awesome! We made a connection in person and a real friendship ensued. We haven’t been able to shoot again – YET – we will again as we are in talks to. Aside from all of that I can’t say enough about his style, and the way he captures the moment with such raw honesty. His images are caught (lovingly) in this time where the image of our people need to be truthful and without stereotype. He doesn’t always show what’s perfect, rather he serves us spirit! From behind his camera he is loving and brotherly. He is a true California personality. Also known as Angel Rodrigues. Check out his work!
