The murals, all portraits of women, have a hyperrealistic quality that appear as if each is existing just above the tide. Due to the works’ position above the water they reflect perfectly into the waves, the image extending out far from the painted surface.

“The first set I ever did with model Shay Maria was shot in these caves hidden in the hills of Tarzana. The cave had a little crevice that allowed some back lighting. We had a lot of soft light coming in from the left side of the frame that gave me a good balance with out any harsh shadows. She only had on a long knit sweater and some low top Chucks and she didn’t need anything else. The second photo in this set is one of my favorites I have ever take because their is so much mystery because of her hair over her eyes. This is a short set but one of my favorites that I’ve done with her.” – Martin Murillo

Empty parking lots are not hard to come by in LA and I love them because of all the fluorescent light. This set was really simple and not planned at all, we just thought it would be cool to just shoot. We went to the top of this lot which over looked a part of Hollywood. I went really high with my ISO on some of these. I didn’t get a lot of noise and the little that I did doesn’t bother me. Enjoy! – Martin Murillo
