Hurricane Sandy is on its way to New York, but while I still have power and an internet connection at home, I thought I’d share some new commissioned work with you…

While I was in Los Angeles recently, Lauri Kranz commissioned me to shoot a few portraits and photographs of her work. Lauri is the woman behind Edible Gardens LA.  In her own words, “Edible Gardens LA builds, plants and sustains organic vegetable gardens. Lauri Kranz teaches gardening at local schools and with her company Edible Gardens LA, helps chefs, families and anyone with an interest in having a home garden grow lush gardens full of organic vegetables.”

We visited 2 of her gardens that afternoon — a garden in Bel Air with the most incredible views, and another beautiful and lush garden perched in the Hollywood hills. The second garden also had a separate greenhouse where Lauri was cultivating orchids and other plants (she told me that the orchids were struggling, but I was amazed by everything in the greenhouse – as you can see, it’s pretty amazing).  Many gardens in LA had been decimated by 2 months of intense heat waves, but these gardens were still hanging in there when I photographed them – I was impressed!

You can read a great article about Lauri, her projects and clients on the LA Times Blog HERE.  And if you’re interested in working with Lauri, her website contains contact information.

Big thanks to Lauri for a great day of shooting and for hiring me to capture her work.

    The idea of such a garden oasis in the sprawling metropolis that is LA is so cool. That greenhouse is magnificent!

      There are actually amazing gardens, greenery and flowers all over LA! But yes- Lauri’s gardens are pretty special.
