LA HOT Magazine Sneak Peak of next issue’s theme
The full description is for members only for this week by clicking here, but will be posted publicly next week, so you can submit your work for the next issue!
Read the blog below the gallery of Emma Choussy’s behind the scenes photography.
Kevin Michael Schmitz is a triple threat. The man has an MFA in photography from the Academy of Art, is a charismatic and effective teacher and can even write the thought provoking editorial to go along with his perfectly post produced masterpiece. He coordinated this magnanimous photo shoot workshop at the historic Boardners in moments with some of the top talent in Hollywood. Links to the agencies are at the end of this article.
If you have not made your way to this bar filled with history dating back to 1942, you must take a gander. It’s located in the heart of the Hollywood strip and always a good time for the very difficult to please Los Angeles locals. Even I like it.
In the photos, you can see Kevin teaching his craft to some already very well-established photographers such as Csaba Fikker (Owner of LA Fashion Magazine), Ace Fillmore (local Hitchcock Fellini type Director), Robert Vance (in our latest issue of LA HOT Magazine) Chris Lee (in our latest issue of LA HOT Magazine), Daniel Her (view his work in the fashion week blog here), Sebastian De Cesare of Pelican MDA and more.

Excerpt from the Note from the Editor:
Since LA HOT Magazine’s motto is to break the global stereotypes that label LA as plastic and devoid of substance, the theme of this issue is simply to showcase LA’s SUBSTANCE & break this global sterotype that LA is devoid of it.
The responses to the theme involved celebrities discussing their favorite charities, Haute Couture influenced by the culture, artchitecture and landscape of LA, hilarious celebrity YouTube spoofs about the fools who actually strive to be these LA stereotypes, artists working in brand new media combinations, visual masterpieces ranging from the macabre and teratology to refined beauty and glamour, and stories contemplating maintaining appearances, humanity and spirituality in such a world wind of a metropolitan area such as Los Angeles where the whole world seems to be watching on tv or the internet.
With imagery from breathtakingly beautiful and sexy to raw and down right frightening and stories that are light and humorous to deep intellectual dives, I encourage to take a journey into the part of LA that rarely make the headlines.
I, also, encourage you to join the coversation and add your own answers to these questions above.

Bree Olson graced the cover of LA HOT Magazine for our Fall 2012 issue in honor of her favorite cause: ANIMAL RESCUE.
The article and photo spread is about how sex sells and why not use sex appeal and get a worthy cause like pet rescue some money and spotlight. Other articles discuss the media’s role & responsibility, the macabre, teratology, even a portrait study of face transplant patients, and most importantly the parts of LA nobody gets to see because of the focus on celebrity worship. The table of contents is in yesterday’s blog and I guarantee you will be impressed… Bree Olson is a very intelligent and sweet woman and it was kind of her to donate her time for such a worthy cause for no pay whatsoever when other pay people pay her quite a bit for similar photos.
The whole reason I chose her to be our cover model in honor of pet rescue was because like me she rescued her dog as did the photographer Kevin Michael Schmitz. Animal rights mean a great deal to all of us and is a huge issue in Los Angeles that can be seen by literally walking around in any neighborhood on a weekend. There are pet adoption posts in all the LA hot spots. I really hope you take the time to donate to Bree’s favorite pet rescue facility SPCALA and even adopt a friend for life! Cats, dogs, and rabbits are available by clicking the pink button below.
To be entered into the contest you must tweet that you donated or adopted at SPCALA and mention @LAHOTMagazine and @SPCALA with #LACares. If you do this, Bree might tweet you to show proof of your donation &/or adoption and give you the very collars worn on the cover photo below!

Excerpt from the Note from the Founder:
The photograph above [Not shown here] is from the photographic series that sparked LA HOT Magazine, LLC. I became a fan of Nikos Vasilakis instantly. After contacting him and realizing he is as humble and sweet as he is talented, I was determined to meet and learn from him. I ventured to Athens to take a personal lesson where I photographed the lovely Christina Zafeiriou. I became ignited with inspiration and cannot wait to bring Nikos as our guest teacher for a LA HOT Magazine workshop in 2012 to share his knowledge and inspire you, too. Then you can see why Nikos is truly LA HOT for yourself.

In this issue, people from around the world answer what comes to mind when they hear the words “LA HOT.” Los Angeles is a global brand that invokes many images, but I personally didn’t realize what really makes LA HOT, until I moved here. Many move here with nothing but a dream based on LA’s image. Despite whatever obstacles, the fearlessness in which these individuals work to achieve their dreams is a huge inspiration for me and for people around the world.
LA HOT Magazine, LLC’s motto is to break the world wide stereotypes that label LA as plastic, superficial and devoid of substance. We aim to prove and showcase through photography and video that it’s the substance here that makes LA HOT. We believe you do not have to be in LA to be LA HOT and most importantly we believe it’s not who you know, but indeed who you are.
