Los Angeles based lamp maker, Ryan Rogers, creates beautiful brass lighting fixtures. The aim of this short piece is to show a bit of the process, tools and techniques that he uses when crafting a lamp, to get a glimpse of his studio in DTLA and his dog, Wylie, and to highlight the fact that all of the lamps are hand built by Ryan, himself-- and to do it in a fun, stylized manner.
You always hear stories about surfer/snowboarders who hit the mountains in the morning and the ocean in the evening, or vice versa. And having access to such diverse topography in a relatively small area is a major bonus to living or working in Southern California. This week I finally got to check that off my list, but for good measure we also through in a desert shoot in Palm Springs. In less than 24 hours we shot in hyper-urban downtown Los Angeles, arid Palm Springs desert, snowy alpine forest in Lake Arrowhead and warm, sunny Venice Beach. Amazing. Helluva whirlwind, but well worth it. Especially with a sweet Australian Cattle Dog (aka Blue Heeler) along for the ride. We'll be rolling out the awesome footage we captured in three forthcoming projects for Jones County Road
