Hi, folks! Would you like to know about me?
Of course you would!
My name is Luke. I was born in Encino, California, and if you look at my photographs you'll realize that I have spent far too much time in the San Fernando Valley. Many people think The Valley is the anticulture hub of Los Angeles, but that's not really true; it's here, but it hides behind tract homes and strip malls.
My favorite photographs are of things that are not afraid to show their age: bent and broken signs, rusty fences, historic buildings, anything that has endured and survived the attacks of external forces and now proudly wears its scars.
I always have a camera with me. I rarely shoot posed or planned shots; I would rather find something unexpected . If I'm at an event, I like to be the backup photographer. I can (and sometimes do) take a picture of the couple's first dance, but I'd rather get a shot of the guests applauding. My shooting style at events is more photojournalistic - usually high-grain, high-speed, black and white shots.
If you are interested in owning or using one of my pictures, or you have a location you'd like me to photograph, or you would like me to be the backup photographer at your event, call or email me to discuss it.
