First Friday by Las Vegas Event Photographer

I was recently asked to photograph a special art installation by First Friday Las Vegas. The event, which is part of the Downtown Project, attracts 20,000 people months.  I was asked to photograph a live painting demonstration. There were six stations setup and each stain featured two artists working on two different canvases. Each station, called a "guerrilla cage," would later be displayed in different areas throughout the city. My job was to document the entire process. It was a real pleasure to watch so many great artists' visions come to fruition.

Flora Pop for the Wall Street Journal by Las Vegas Professional Photographer Jacob Kepler

As someone who has traveled around the county, living in a van, I have always really liked the look of these teardrop shaped trailers with their stainless steel finish. I would have never though of turning it into a business, which is exactly what Victoria Hogan from Flora Pop did. Flora Pop is a full service, all inclusive pop-up wedding service. Hogan travels to various places around Las Vegas, uses the trailer as a sort of altar, and is licensed to officiate the wedding. We met near Nelson's Landing for the photos.

Les Grossman

Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder.  He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.

Hydeia Broadbent for Poz Magazine

I recently had the opportunity to photograph activist Hydeia Broadbent for the cover of POZ Magazine. In 1984, Broadbent was born with HIV, and addicted to crack and heroin. She began her activism at the age of six by appearing on TV shows like Oprah and speaking at the National Institutes of Health.  Currently, she works as an author and continues to speak internationally on the subject of HIV/AIDS.       I met Broadbent at my studio and did some quick change lighting setups for most of the portraits. We also walked around the grounds to get some additional photos.
