"HELLCHILD' short film with Jacob Messex by Steven Garcia

Last week I was able to work with The Berrics to make a short film about my friend, young skate photographer Jacob Messex. 

Jacob is a staff photographer at The Skateboard Mag. Besides shooting action, he has been compiling portraits and lifestyle photos for his Filmus photo zines.

To celebrate the launch of his Filmus 3 zine, I spent a few days with Jacob, edited quickly, and released a short film online just before his exhibition at Kingswell in Los Angeles.

Jacob's zines are available in his webstore here -

Summer Ends by Steven Garcia

It doesn't feel like it but the Summer of 2015 is officially over. I can't fell the seasons change in this heat wave. Some days were spent with friends. I'm starting to catch up on old new year's resolutions. Onward to Autumn.

Life Is Beautiful festival, 2015 by Steven Garcia

A few weeks ago, I visited to Las Vegas to film video segments that were edited into the live webcast of the Life Is Beautiful festival. 

When I wasn't documenting the barbecue burritos and coconut rum, I managed to catch a few bands including Metric, Run The Jewels, Future Islands, Best Coast, and Weezer.

(Spoon also played an amazing show at our hotel but I wasn't able to shoot any photos. )

Utah & Vegas by Steven Garcia

Last week, my good friends Martin Moody and Lacy Timmerman got married on a farm in Utah.

To celebrate, myself and friends embarked on a road trip from Los Angeles, California to Heber City, Utah, where we rented a large house together for the weekend. A few of us decided to stop in Las Vegas on the way home.
