Venice Beach Skate Park

I've been shooting in L.A. once or twice a year for one of my long time clients for the past 5 years. Funny enough we always stay in the same hotel in Santa Monica and up until my shoot out there a few weeks back I never had time to take the mile or so walk down to Venice Beach. This year I headed out to L.A. a day early due to winter weather here in Chicago and made it a point to fit in a little tourist time in Venice. Here are a few of my favorite shots while hanging around the famed Venice Skate Park. 

Larson Acres

A few outtakes from my time shooting at Larson Acres, a family owned dairy farm in southern Wisconsin. The farm has been in the family for five generations and currently houses over 2,000 head of holstein. It was fascinating to see all the work that goes into maintaining a farm of that size. Needless to say the work never ends.
