Don’t be fooled by its name! The Boone Children’s Gallery offers a free space for everyone of all ages to learn and make art. I have been privileged to have been on assignment for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the largest encyclopedic museum in the Western United States. I photographed the visitors at the Boone Children’s Gallery, also known as “The Boone”. As a current Gallery Facilitator in the space, I also have an opportunity to teach different programs related to the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. For example, I have taught the different techniques of Korean Brush painting to children as young as four and visitors as old as ninety. It is truly a great space to explore your creativity while learning about different types of art and the histories of various cultures.

I had an opportunity to photograph a celebrity gala for CoachArt’s Gala of Champions. The fundraiser honored United Talent Agency’s CEO Jeremy Zimmer and Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts and her sister, Sally-Ann Roberts. Attendees included celebrities such as Bryan Cranston, Wayne Newton, Kathleen McCrone, Chandra Wilson, Shondrella Avery, Chante Moore, and Leroy Sanchez. The event was held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills and was hosted by Sal Masekela and Entertainment Tonight’s Brooke Anderson. My photo coverage included the red carpet, pre-show, and event! I had a blast and it was a true privilege to be at the Gala of Champions.
