Peels x Richard Kern

We kind of drove amelessly until we saw something cool and were like "stop the car let's shoot here" There was no real schedule, which is kinda the best way for me. I like to keep things in that grey area of being professional, and doing it DIY style...

It almost felt like skating spots in a way. We would pull out to a place and kind of just walk in and start shooting. We would get kicked out and Richard Kern would just say hold on we're almost done! ...Camera usage at the park also required some crazy permits so we kind of got in, did our thing, and dipped out real quick. Our last shot of the day, and also most funny was at this shady 1-star motel south of nyack NY. 

 

We wanted something gritty, with some character. We actually pulled up some hotel reviews and picked the one with the lowest ratings. We set up in the room and Richard started shooting immediately. After like an hour and a half we started packing up. I remember walking out with a handful of clothes and camera equipment and the hotel manager started freaking out. He kicked us out and started yelling at us for taking pictures. I guess it might have looked like we were doing something else other than a peels shoot...
