“Paradise Lost” by Kamea Hadar and Defer

Brian Chu

Another POW! WOW! HAWAII! related video, this time featuring Kamea Hadar, who came through San Francisco for his recent show at 1AM Gallery. His new work is in collaboration with Defer and titled “Paradise Lost”, which explore their interpretations of paradise. Kamea and Defer first worked together at POW! WOW! and since then Defer has moved to Hawaii permanently. Being on the same island they were able to share their ideas and let those concepts evolve naturally. “Paradise Lost” by…

Black Scale x Timberland Video

Brian Chu

We’re releasing our latest Black Scale video — featuring their work boot collaboration with Timberland. It’s been 4 years since our first Black Scale video and we’re extremely fortunate to have worked with them every year since then. Growing with Mega and the Black Scale family has been a natural process since our first project together. We worked with them at their original store on Grant Street in San Francisco, followed them when they opened up in Los Angeles; we also had the opportunity to film a project…

SUBNOTIC Film

Brian Chu

The SUBNOTIC film is a personal exploration of trance and inner imagery. The images represent a place where thoughts can drift and the subconscious begins to influence what I might hear, see, or feel. It’s a reminder to go there often, if I close my eyes, and imagine a time when I once was. I got the idea for this when I was half asleep on a plane ride, not realizing if I was awake or dreaming. People will often…

Analog Almanac: September 2014

Terry Barentsen

Every few weeks I choose 10 photos that I’ve shot over the month and post the collection here. After posting the first analog almanac I realized how doing this not only shares what I’ve been up to, but it also gives me a chance to see how different “collections/ shoot days” look when grouped together. This is something I’ve never thought of doing, and I feel it’s great way to step back and really analyze why you’re drawn to certain…

APEXER Paints The Sienna

Austin Chu

A few months ago, APEXER recruited me for a paint run, so we paid a quick visit to the original MTN COLORS HQ of NORTH AMERICA. On the drive down, we discussed testing out the new Hardcore 2 on our 2000 Toyota Sienna — the beat up minivan desperately needed a quick facelift and I was totally surprised APEXER wanted to throw down on it. By the time we arrived, he came up with a simple camouflage color scheme and agreed to the collaboration. Brian ended up burning through…

I Have A Life: Summer in San Francisco

Jorge Novoa

I Have A Life: Summer in San Francisco takes us back to a warm friday afternoon stroll, through the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco. We ran into Kenzie, Tae, Liz and Crew working on the new Alite Store set to be open very soon. They are going to be located on 18th near Mission St. next to Ken Ken Ramen. (They do that double egg at Ken Ken, mighty tasty.) Stoop parties are the way some San Franciscans get “Turnt”. AO of Crashing…

Analog Almanac: August 2014

Terry Barentsen

Welcome to the first post of our new monthly series called Analog Almanac. We’ll post a collection of photography shot on film every month or so. Since this is the first post I chose a collection of images that was shot in 2014 primarily with a Mamiya 7ii with the exception of the first that was shot on a friends hasselblad. Future posts will consist of current shots taken within that month. Normally I don’t leave the house without a…

Werehaus Studio Photo

Complete Studio Guide

Jorge Novoa

We kept our Downtown Office but it was time to spread our collective wings to offer our clients and ourselves a place to marinate and create. We looked for studio space all over the city, from the Richmond to Downtown and all places in between. We lucked out and found this gem nestled in a little corner of the city. Located in the sunny and beautiful Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco,  the new studio is packed with all of the finest…

Vietnam Footage in Super 8

Brian Chu

Here is my Vietnam footage shot in Super 8. We spent 2 weeks in Saigon for another project and I used to opportunity to make this short travel film. We stayed mostly in Saigon and left the city only to visit a somewhat depressing zoo. Other than that, I brought this camera with me throughout the trip and filmed things I was visually drawn too. This was one of the first times experimenting with a Super 8 camera and I…
