Friday we attended the last exhibit of the semester at the LBCC Art Gallery which featured students from many of the different classes on campus. From oil canvas to acrylic, sculptures to photography students of many mediums were present, and they put on quite the final display to end the semester. Check out some of the pieces from the show and follow the LBCC Art Gallery facebook page for updates on the next gallery!
Justin Boyd is a 18yr old Millikan HS student who loves to shoot! His love for photography began when he would link up with one of his good friends to go shoot the DTLB area and he quickly took a liking to being behind the lens. He considers himself a portrait/street photographer but he also specializes in making lookbooks for several clothing brands. Boyd's favorite subjects to shoot are his friends, because he doesn't have to create an atmosphere for the shot everything just comes so natural. When the vibe is right and he is free to do as he pleases that is when Boyd creates some of his best work. After he graduates from EPHS in a couple weeks Boyd plans to move to Santa Monica where he will go to school for film so he can begin to make the transition from photographer to videographer, which is the career he really wants to pursue. Check out some of his work and follow him on Twitter/IG below!
Riley Donahue is a 19yr old film major at CSULB, and one piece of the pie that is the Quality Time Radio crew. He has a nact for photography and has also picked up DJ'ing on the fly! He's been working behind the lens for 2yrs and he hopped on the mixer a few weeks ago and has not only caught on quick, but he can definitely tear it up already! In fact we sat in on this weeks radio show where he did a set and you would've thought he'd been doing this for years. Riley is an extremely creative dude and the life he wants to pursue is simply using his creativity to help other people/brands make their vision a reality. Whether it be a marketing campaign, promotional video, lookbook or catalogue Riley is the man with the creative plan! Short term he wants to just continue to connect with local artists/creatives and grow his portfolio. As far as long term Riley wants to keep it simple all he wants to do is create art in as many forms as possible for as long as he lives. This guys is extremely talented and a very quick learner so the sky isn't even enough of a limit for him. We hope to work with him in the near future and honestly if you're a creative you should want to as well! Follow him on IG/Twitter and check out some of his photography below!
