21 Reasons To Drink In L.A.

21 reasons to drink in L.A. is an ongoing project I started years ago. My idea is to photograph 21 of the best female bartenders in L.A., the ones who keep the customers coming back.

No. 16

This is Mona. She worked at The Continental with Rita. Mona has sort of a retro Hollywood vibe with her place and the clothes she chose to wear and it worked perfectly for her.

No.15

This is Rita. She was working at The Continental on Wilshire when I photographed her. We shot at her place in Hollywood where she lived in a little bungalow. We shot inside then went out into the courtyard to shoot and nobody seemed to care that we were photographing a half naked girl there! It also helps that everybody likes her. Dani No. 14 recommended Rita to me and she came by for a couple of bonus shots.

I am still looking for more bartenders, so for those of you who like this blog and have any bartender recommendations let me know in the comments section.

This is Dani. She worked at a bar in Hollywood. We shot at her place in Studio City where she is able to be herself and not worry about what other people think.

No. 12  &  No. 13

This is B&S, They both worked at the Beauty Bar in Hollywood and wanted to be photographed together. This shoot was like photographing two little girls playing dress up. I think they had more fun than I did.

This is C. She worked at a bar in Hollywood and was recommended by a friend. My friend told me C also worked as a dominatrix. So this is what she brought to the shoot plus she brought a friend to tie the knots.

This is Dee. She worked at a bar in Studio City. I shot her for another project and she had such an easy feeling in front of the camera that I asked her to be in “21 Reasons”.

No. 9

This is Ancorneil AC. She worked at the Sunset Room when I met her. She may seem a little unapproachable but if you do she will have you laughing in minutes. She has a great sense of humor and a great  love of life. She is now persuing her passion which is singing.
