I recently stumbled upon Rikki Mendias on http://www.vimeo.com . He's a talented photographer and the star, cinematographer, and camera operator of one of my favorite new videos:
Drake - "Marvin's Room" Unofficial Video from @IVAN_RunJuly on Vimeo.
In this more recent video he's the star and the director of photography.
Rikki's going to be my unofficial tour guide when I'm in California for Spring Break 2012. He just doesn't know it yet ;).
His videos and photographs pull you in. When I visited his website http://www.rikkspikks.com I was mesmerized with his work. Rikki Mendias is someone to get to know. You won't be disappointed.
