mayor eric garcetti, briefly

los angeles mayor eric garcetti, photographed above the rotunda in city hall – briefly, as is the case with all politicians. the one perk: no permits required. toward the end of our prep we were stopped by a police officer who told us we didn't have permission to set the gear up there and we'd have to take everything down and move. before i could even argue garcetti showed up and said "these guys are fine." it kind of makes me want to have the mayor at all of my shoots.
