My favorite city. I shot these images of Kimera Morrell on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles. She’s an ex New Jersey resident whom I’ve shot several times in my studio.
We didn’t have permission to be here and our shoot took about 4 hours. During that period, not one person came up to use the roof nor did anyone come up to tell us to leave. Things would be different in NYC. Any location with cool backgrounds and great lighting would have dozens of photographers setting up camp daily.
All images were shot on the Leica M9 and Leica M240 cameras. The M9 is such a great camera, that it is still the first camera I reach for when the light is good. Using it is much like using the M240, even though the M240 is a more advanced camera. I give Leica a lot of credit for creating a camera like the M9 that is still worthwhile even when its superior successor is released.
