Escandalo, for SPANK Mag Cover Story

Back in February the guys from SPANK MAG asked me if I would be interested in shooting something for there up coming HORROR ISSUE. It all came together and I got a chance to shoot the art rock band duo known as ESCANDALO. The Band consist of Desi Monster and Viva Ruiz. I was a little apprehensive about shooting the two considering their artistic resumes. However, the day of the shoot came and it seems all three of us brought the noise. They had tons of energy and were really down for whatever. I was pleasantly surprised when they later told me that one of my images was going to be on the cover. The magazine is looking more amazing every time I pick it up. I was honored when I finally got a copy and saw how many talented photographers they had shooting for it. I couldn't believe they ran mine on the cover. FUCKING BRUCE LA BRUCE shot something for the issue. In the end meeting and working with ESCANDALO has kinda changed my social life forever. I now seem to be going to all of Desi's crazy parties and Viva is everywhere I turn. Finally wanna give a shout out to my roommate Chaz Requina for not only being my photo assistant on the shoot but also turning it out on the tunes. Check out the SPANK MAG website site and also OUT.COM for photos I made at the party for the issue's release.
