We Love It: Season II

kyle_ellis_photography_dodgers_baseball_title.jpg

What started out as a simple continuation of We Love It: Images From Dodger Stadium - Season I, quickly became an emotional rollercoaster that took the Dodger's, and their fans, to Game 7 of the World Series.

From the clear blue skies of Spring Training, at Camelback Ranch, to the divison clinching celebration of the regular season...

This is We Love It: Images From DodgerStadium - Season II.

Disclaimer: I chose not to capture any images, during the playoffs, due to wanting to be "in the moment". It's such a special feeling, being in that stadium, during playoff games. If you ever get the chance... go.

April showers brings two weeks of instagram posts featuring flowers... and these images as well.

Natural light is not my prefered light; it's unpredictable and can pose a number of challenges, like weird shadows etc. However, I love the bright and explosive images it produces. With that in mind, a landscape that was poppin (the flowers were poppies) and a dress to match, my friend Jutta and I set out to Walker Canyon to lug our gear up a mountain while capturing the rare sight of the vibrant flora.

Thanks again to Jutta for being brave enough to trek where others dared not to and for caving in when I suggested we eat at Sonic.

"Japan" is a chronological display of my month-long adventure... in Japan. With this series, I wanted to capture what life is like in a country that holds true to it's traditions while leading the way in today's modern world. I also wanted an excuse to experience, and capture, cool stuff.

We Love It: Season I | Street


"We Love It!" These are the words that are shouted after every victory at Dodger Stadium (and via text amongst a select group of friends). But it's more than just some words from a song; it's a declaration of the united admiration of "it". "It" being the Dodgers. To most, the Dodgers represent a baseball team. To me, they represent a community. A community that, despite the health risks, lives blue (Pantone 294 to be exact).

That's what these images represent.

I never planned on this being a thing. I just happened to bring my camera to a game, and from there, one image lead to another... and another. Though different areas presented unique obstacles, that often times forced me to play within their confining rules, I learned that that's what makes Dodger Stadium so beautiful.

That's why I love these images... that's why I LOVE IT.
