Angelenos, please recommend an awesome and artsy portrait photographer.

I'm being featured in a hardback art book. They need a high-quality portrait of me in the next three weeks (!!). Who do you recommend? I live in Hollywood but can travel within, say, 25 miles for the right person. Links to portfolios appreciated.

A high school friend of mine is (partially) making his living as a photographer in LA. His name is Coy and his web site is here. I think he does the kind of thing you're wanting.

Lou O'Bedlam is LA-based, I think.

Best answer: I do not know him, but if I were in your shoes I would contact this guy: Max Wanger.
