I got a call from a client out of Montreal asking me “hey Ian want to shoot a project for us in Los Angeles”. Now understand this call came in October leading into winter so of course my reply was “absolutely”. They had just completed a project providing lighting for the exterior of the iconic Sunset Tower Hotel. For those of you that don’t know this hotel it was built in 1929 on Sunset Boulevard. It has a storied past that includes Colonel Klink from Hogan’s Hero’s TV show refusing to move out until the site was designated a historic landmark to avoid demolition. His efforts were successful of course and now I get a chance to photograph it’s exterior in all its glory – wow what an assignment!
