Earl Buenaobra is a Filipino-American Photographer born, raised and currently based in Los Angeles, California. After picking up his first camera in 2008, he began creating photographs, documenting his life and the people in his local community. During his early years, he was also active in a non-profit hip hop dance company (Culture Shock LA) where he was immersed in hip hop culture, music, dance, and the arts. These cultural facets along with his early upbringing built the foundations of his unique perspective and how he documents life around him.
From working with brands such as Toyota, Adidas, Diesel, Brain Dead, Fruition Las Vegas, Common Ace & Sophia Chang, to collaborating with music artists such as Pink Sweat$, BLXST, Sabrina Claudio, Jamal Moore & Ylona Garcia to his ongoing body of work with the Academy of DJs, Earl uses his camera to evoke emotion and movement in his photographs, to capture the true essence of the people he meets, and to document the world and his life in the present moment.
Earl lives his life everyday by the mantra of "Always Learning".
