Spend 5: Adam Rindy
Adam Rindy, Los Angeles photo taker and party maker. We may also add a man of mystery to the title. You see, while most photographers’ about pages will read like a short novel, Rindy prefers to keep us guessing. His resume, on the other hand, reads in volumes 1,2, and 3. With a love for photography that stems from a much greater love for human interaction, Adam’s natural and honest approach to his art has led many a fashion labels and companies to come knocking on his door. From Marc Jacobs and Urban Decay to Jeffrey Campbell and Pretty Little Things, his extensive list of fashion and lifestyle editorials has taken him around the world, several times over.
So what else is there to know about this photographer on the rise? Well, he is the kind of friend you wished lived in your pocket so that he could take aesthetically beautiful images of you, while you pretended you weren’t looking. And heck, he would even make it look believable. I mean spend just 5 minutes scrolling through his work and no one will blame you for planning an impromptu trip, or a girls night out. From his lively fashion editorials, to cool girl polaroids and personal travel posts, you could easily use the website as a pre-packaged mood board.
Not content stalking and digging around, we thought the next best thing was to spend 5 with the man himself.
