What makes Los Angeles so interesting is it’s incredible diversity and that includes the landscape. We have
right in the heart of the most densely populated city. The Los Angeles River provides a nice natural backdrop for a photo shoot and has quite easy access. We needed to do a shoot with a few of the new pieces so we decided to head down to the river in what is affectionately called
There can be a lot that goes into a shoot but we tried to pair it down so we could be mobile. My boyfriend, Demetrius, graciously helped out with photography and is seen “getting a shot” for our Frog Town Fashion Photo Shoot! A Blue Heron helped out and added great backgroundas well. I love spotting nature in Los Angeles for it givesme hope that
we aren’t completely doomed!
I love the candid group shot of the team, which includes Jenna and Leslie who help tremendously with every aspect of running Matrushka and are good sports onlocation. Jo, our model, was also a good sport for venturing down onto the riverbed.There had recently been a fuel tanker accident which caused abizarre fire to occur in the river which was a real bummer fornature always struggles to survive in these urban conditions. The silver lining was it made and interesting setting for a picture.
