I was invited this past weekend to be a VIP Instagrammer at the AVP Manhattan Beach Open. I was invited up to the VIP lounge and was able to shoot anywhere throughout the event. It was an awesome opportunity to get up close and photograph these incredible athletes. It was a huge crowd with 3 different courts and numerous vendors selling their products. The day ended with a beautiful sunset overlooking the beach and The Strand. Manhattan Beach is a volleyball mecca and it's always great to go this event every year!
Open since 1917, Grand Central Market in Downtown Los Angeles is my favorite place to eat in LA. Its vendors offer some of the best modern and diverse cuisines this city has to offer.

Venice Beach, California is one of my favorite spots in Los Angeles to capture the perfect sunset. It's a little touristy, but this vibrant town still has great character. Before taking photos at the pier, be sure to walk around the Boardwalk and experience everything from art, skaters and street performers!
