Downtown LA, as Photographed by Location Scouts

Few people know the lay of downtown Los Angeles better than the professional location scouts and managers who set up the area’s constant flow of commercial, TV, and film shoots.

Starting later this month, a juried exhibit of fine art photos shot by thirteen members of this group will be on display at the Terrell Moore Gallery. The Friday April 15th kick-off and subsequent April 16th-30th run of “Downtown: Incomplete LA” is part of a wide range of events being staged for Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA). Per the press release:

“Most of us love photography but utilize it only in our role as location scouts and managers,” says exhibit co-chair Ken Haber. “So often an amazing photograph presents itself as we are out there in the field but it doesn’t necessarily fit into the scope of the work at hand. This show allows our members to blend those two worlds and to show off their skills and creativity as photographers and artists.”

The competition that led to the exhibit was judged by fine art photographers Douglas McCulloh, Aline Smithson, and Lee Varis. For a sneak peak at some of the finalists’ work, click here.
