Only Romain-Gavras can can make me want to fight... in slow motion... in France. This has been out for a minute, but if you haven't watched it, and ALL of his music videos and films... get on it now. Not a day goes by when I don't think about something this guy has done in regards to photography and film.

Shhhhh, Just Go With It

I pray nobody offers a trade for my arms in exchange for this car... Photos from Sven, and always more great European cars like this over at the Motoring Con Brio.

Pacific Standard Time

I've been lucky enough to work with Pacific Sunwear a few times in the last couple of months. I've shot a couple campaigns for them, and every time we end up having a blast. My reactionary, "snapshot," photo-journalistic approach to shooting fashion and lifestyle has been a departure from their traditional "catalog" photography, but one that seems to be a nice fit for both of us.

The people at Pac have been great and are truly some of the most talented and creative folks I've had the pleasure of working with. They give just enough direction to know they're going to get what they need, but then back off and trust that I'm going to deliver in my style. I couldn't ask for anything better. If you get a sec, drop in your local mall and check the full-sized pieces out. Below are a few of my favorite shots and out-takes from the last couple of months. And as always, big ups to my boy, Andy, for being my right hand on these shoots.

All crispy everything. But don't take my word for it, hit his site and make it a daily stop for the pieces you didn't even know you needed. He does it right. He does it all day. He does this everyday.

All Nude Everything

I don't get very excited about LookBooks these days. Even though ATG is somewhat lumped into this whole menswear/style/fashion/nonsense world, you'd be hard-pressed to find too much of it here on a regular basis (I'll leave that to fellas like Michael and Lawrence). That being said, I did find myself getting excited over the new Nudie lookbook. Yup, Nudie, as in Swedish denim we've all come to love, hate, care about or forget. As a company they're nothing new, but as a line, they seem to really be finding a groove with their '11 Fall/Winter collection.

The best part of the line might just be their introduction of the slim khaki program. I've been wearing Nudie since Traffic, in LA, was the only shop on the west coast carrying them -- back when the Slim Jims were the tightest things I could ever picture myself wearing (the start of a slippery slope). I still have a few pairs in heavy rotation. Check the brand out if you haven't in a while. It's not for everyone, with your double monks and tailored Cucinelli blazers, but for the everyday-easy-clean-fitted, it's looking more the part. A few highlight-teasers after the jump

17 Bucks Will Only Get You So Far

I get that I'm about 3 years too late on this one, but hey, this isn't CNN. While roaming the hills of LA with my buddy, Jake this week, we found ourselves in Union on La Brea and I found myself silently admiring the genius on the wall. The large posters were blow-ups from artist, Jayson Scott Musson's book, 'Too Black For Bet.' Do yourself a favor and get to Union to pick up a copy for yourself. Might just be some of the best 17 dollars you'll ever spend.
