I always want my shoots to look as authentic as possible. It helps add depth, beauty and allows people connect with the photographs more. Authentic and antique props are essential to many photo shoot. The tricky part is finding the exact prop you need and knowing where the good prop shops are in Los Angeles.
Recently I had the opportunity to work with History for Hire to capture the prop shop on camera. The two story 35,000-square-foot space showcases props and pieces from the past 150 years. The owners Pam and Jim Elyea are veteran prop masters and set decorators in Hollywood. It was amazing to take photos of stacks of vintage TV sets, military gear and props used in Mad Men. I really enjoyed shooting almost any prop you could imagine! I was also very inspired for future shoots. You truly felt as though you were surrounded by Hollywood’s history.
