#photography #losangeles #photowalk  
So that was a super fun evening! The one, the only Trey Ratcliff from www.StuckInCustoms.com and TheArcanum.com fame made his Los Angeles stop of his TreyUSA photowalk tour across the U.S. last weekend. There were at least 300 photographers crawling the Santa Monica beach and pier area, all of us learning, laughing, and snapping away.

Ok. I am SUPER proud of this one!!! +Subaru of America, Inc. recently reached out to me to use one of my +Yosemite National Park images for a joint effort they're doing with the National Park Service promoting sustainability, and well, the site is live!!! When you log onto http://www.subaru.com/csr/environment.html, that Yosemite tunnel view right there in the background? Yup!
And unlike many others, they're actually walking the walk! They're not only America's first zero-landfill automaker, in which all their waste is reused or recycled, but they've also launched the National Park Zero-Landfill initiative. Log onto the site and learn more! And here's the documentary trailer regarding the initiative and what they're doing to clean up trash in our national parks! Pretty darned cool to see a car company doing this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tx3wm8mN6g

T'was a super fun evening! The one, the only +Trey Ratcliff from stuckincustoms.com and  +The Arcanum made his los angeles stop of his ‪#‎TreyUSA‬ ‪#‎photowalk‬ tour across the country last night. There were at least 300 photographers crawling the Santa Monica beach and pier area learning, laughing, and snapping away. Not only did I get the pleasure of running into The Candid Frame's +Ibarionex Perello (if you don't know the podcast...DO IT! NOW!), the night even proved to be a night of firsts for me - my first photowalk and I got to meet my Arcanum  master +Robin Griggs Wood in the flesh for the first time!! Thanks so much Trey for setting the thing up and hope to see you again soon. These are some of my favorite shots from the event, all shot on a ‪#Samsung #NX1

Oh yeah, it was fun +shonie Hutter! Trey is one of the first photographers I was introduced to here on Google+ years back and been following him since, so was pretty neat opportunity to get to go meet him and shoot with him and 300 other shutterbugs invading the beach!

No dobut about it +Bzk Mika A...it really is. Well, at least in the summer. I hear the winters...eh...not so much...

Introduction
pics. vids. words. robots. are coming. 
--

In my words:

I used to make images. Then I went to college, made images, and played records. I graduated from college, started working for a record label.

Then record labels went kaput. 

Then I wrote for magazines, mostly music and music production magazines and I started and published an internationally distributed music, arts and politics newsstand magazine.

Then the print industry went kaput. 

I then spent half a decade making videos for Mattel, Gap, Armani, Warner Brothers. That had to stop. Edit caves are dark. I like sun. I moved into the hills, started editing a wellness magazine, and helped open an organic cafe in Santa Barbara. 

Then the economy went kaput. And the cafe, and the magazine, and my mind, with it. 

So I started volunteering at the State Parks. 

And I started making images again. 

Life is funny like that.

In someone else's words:

“Wasim is a media professional well-versed in everything from print publications to motion pictures and video production. He began his career writing for various Primedia and Conde Nast publications before founding Kotori Magazine, a progressive lifestyle national newsstand print publication that featured everyone from the Wu Tang Clan and Hunter S. Thompson’s resident Artist Ralph Steadman to influential political and philanthropic personalities including Ralph Nader, Dr. Lester Grinspoon, The Sierra Club’s founder Carl Pope, and Kiva.org.

His attentive eye for detail and keen editorial sense led him to spend several years as a Senior Editor and Creative Director, producing and editing award-winning marketing and commercial videos and corporate media packages for Fortune 500 companies including Gap, Mattel, and Warner Brothers, featuring everyone from Heidi Klum and Tiger Woods, to Common, Beyonce, Megan Fox, and The Maine.

In addition to working as a photographer for Airbnb.com and his property and real estate photography company, Pro Property Photos, Wasim is currently creating photography and video assets for Megan Racing marketing campaigns, VectorMount for GoPro corporate, marketing, & advertising, and celebrity profiles and portraits for WhoHasItApp.com. He has also been recently named one of 50 official Samsung Camera Imageloggers, making him a brand ambassador for one of today’s most innovative lines of mirrorless interchangeable lens camera systems.

Muklashy was also a co-founder of an organic cafe in Santa Barbara, California, and has done media work for The Annenberg Foundation, USC’s Marshall Schools Of Business’ Social Innovation program, and award-winning producer and TEDx presenter Frank Fitzpatrick’s Earthtones foundation, dedicated to ‘transforming the human spirit through the power of music and film,’ including an interactive digital publication designed for the arts and music curriculum for the nation’s schools.

Wasim devotes much of his time to various humanitarian and environmental causes, currently serving as a volunteer docent in the California State Park System, where he has self-tasked himself to develop original multimedia assets to help bring more attention to our underfunded protected public spaces. He spends whatever time he has left documenting the state’s surrounding parks and landscapes through photography.

Wasim currently resides in Topanga Canyon, California.”
