Every departure from LAX’s South Complex and a few arrivals at the north complex have been captured and pieced together to create this image. – Mike Kelley
Miles Rogoish – Gap-to-wall.
This is one of those photos that plays tricks on your mind when you picture where Miles actually came from to get to the wall and how he pulled back into the wedge. I originally shot this as a composite so that I could have one photo of Miles on the quarter pipe on the left and one on the wall as you see here but it just didn’t have the right feel when I put it together. I ended up liking the shadow more than anything and decided to go with this single image instead. I also typically never light my photos with a single strobe but that’s exactly what I did here and it ended up working out. That just serves as a reminder to never get stuck using the same set-up over and over and to always keep your options open. Shout-out to the Stranger crew and Aaron Brenner for letting me shoot at the warehouse.

Not since the elamenop.com days have I actually sat down and spent a lot of time putting a personal portfolio site together. I’ve always just whipped something together out of necessity, but this latest rendition of my portfolio changes that. The site is broken up into three sections, film/photo/stories… The film section is pretty similar to my last site, but I’m super excited about the photos and stories section. I’ve been shooting photos forever, but have never actually put a real portfolio together. It has been a lot of fun digging through my archives and organizing all my work into specific galleries. The stories section is where I’ll be posting all my personal work from now on. I’m always doing random projects on my own and am looking forward to having a home for them.
