It's a big leap from the bustle of an athletic field to the solitude of a darkroom, but Calumet Photographic made the transition seamlessly more than 70 years ago. From its origins as a Chicago sporting-goods store, the company evolved into a one-stop shop for cameras and darkroom equipment and eventually into an innovator of photographic technology. In the 1960s, Calumet's most brilliant minds were behind the development of the Caltar large-format-lens line and nitrogen burst film.
Today, Calumet Photographic continues to manufacture and sell professional photographic products and software across the globe, boasting more than 25 retail stores throughout the US and Europe. Their shops abound with both new and used high-quality cameras and equipment, rental gear, and knowledgeable technicians eager to help customers find the right equipment for the job. The company’s extensive online catalog enables shoppers to purchase equipment from around the world and have it shipped directly to their home, studio, or mall photo booth they’ve claimed as a studio.
Photographer Stuart Townsley uses a trained eye and high-tech equipment to capture memories into frameworthy prints and digital art, using 10 of LA's most attractive landmarks as backdrops. The famed local sites where he sets up camp—such as the roaring Pacific Ocean under Santa Monica Pier or the 1930s architecture and picturesque fountain of Union Station—elegantly complement subjects' smiling visages. His shutter snaps hundreds of times during each photo shoot, immortalizing the faces, poses, and secret handshakes of families and well-behaved pets. Well-versed in state-of-the-art retouching gear, Stuart unfurls his astutely edited creations onto glossy prints, canvases, and online albums.
Stuart's advice on what to wear and bring to shoots, garnered through 12 years of professional experience, conveniently resides online to aid in the selection of appropriate outfits for every mother, father, child, or hamster.
Just like the organism from which it takes its name, Amoeba Music’s stock of tunes has no definite form. At each location, expert music gurus amass thousands of new and used CDs and LPs from the most mainstream artists to the most obscure underground bands around. LPs, posters, and memorabilia surround the musical inventory, which, like Ringo Starr’s pants, changes every day. Amoeba buys goods from customers, meaning that on any given day the store might usher in a rare vinyl LP, DVD, VHS, or even LaserDisc. Visitors can sign up for any number of contests while admiring Amoeba’s enduring dedication to its green practices and community outreach. Amoeba couples its huge selection of entertainment with visits from the artists themselves, welcoming past guests such as Paul McCartney, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords, and Elvis Costello to play in-store.
Everything about Brian’s Shave Ice evokes the tropics: the bright mural of surfboard and palm trees on the wall, the tiki-style furniture, and syrups made of cane sugar flown in from Hawaii. The sweet sauces decorate spheres of fine snow crafted using ice shavers from Japan. Their flavors have included watermelon, mocha frappe, and a strawberries-and-cream flavor with strawberry syrup that’s made in house. Patrons can opt to fill their ice balls with azuki beans, creamy dollops of ice cream, or mochi—a dulcet rice paste that assumes a pleasant chewiness when chilled. Shelves in the shop brim with intriguing ingredients, including green-tea paste, pearls of tapioca, Ghiradelli chocolate, and organic acai. Brian’s also serves cones of Dole Whip, a pineapple-flavored soft-serve treat normally difficult to find outside of Oahu, Disneyland, or kitchens where somebody is trying to figure out what a platypus eats.
"I love teaching art," declares teaching veteran and artist Ann Bridges on her YouTube video. Her students agree. "She helps you develop your own technique and your own style," shares one, and another muses, "Ann is the kind of teacher who creates a really great atmosphere in the studio… I feel like it's a place where I can improve my technique and also foster my creativity."
Drawing inspiration from locales ranging from the cerulean vistas of Catalina Island to the smoky peaks of the Eastern Sierras and the urban landscapes of Los Angeles, Bridges paints as well as she instructs. She creates her work with an impressionist style, an artist's eye, and wrist flicks puppeteered by Monet's ghost.
For more than 20 years, the professional photographers at Charlie's Angels Photography have worked to capture images that not only preserve memories but also incorporate artistic touches. Their digital galleries boast shots from larger occasions such as weddings and runway shows to private events such as boudoir and portrait sessions. Their staff also includes professional makeup artists, who can prep subjects for shoots or gussy up complexions before weddings or high-school-graduation re-enactments.
Allen and Richard Wattenberg took over the reins at Ross Cutlery in 1964. By that time, the shop was already 34 years old and predominantly dealt with knife-sharpening services. While the brothers and their staff have continued the shop's legacy of fixing up dull knife blades and haircutting tools, they've steadily populated their shelves with professional-grade haircutting tools, sporting knives, collectible swords, and kitchen-cutlery sets from Henckels, Trident, and Forschner. Their 2,300-square-foot shop rests on the ground floor of the Bradbury Building, which is an architectural landmark and the proud father of a rambunctious little parking garage.
Kitchen appliances, ornate candelabras, and other charming home essentials fill the many shelves of Marigold Houseware’s cozy boutique and online store. Imperial tea glasses and flower-dappled teapots team up with blue-tinged glass fruit bowls and platters from Walther to curate refined tablescapes. Soft-grip garlic presses squeeze out cloves in silhouettes of Julia Child, and pots of stainless steel heat colorful sauces to paint on fine china plates. Marigold Houseware's Judaica collection presents an artful take on religious wares, pairing elegant menorahs with Seder plates, Kiddush cups, and other Jewish table trappings.
