Avoidence of Perfection

Hi, I'm Larry McAllister II (AKA LARRYTRON). I am an artist, graphic designer, photographer and project manager/art director.

This is my scrap book of inspiration. I love visual culture. Everything from graphic design and typography, to tattoos, to graffiti, to photography... clothes, cars, architecture, nature... all of it is inspiring.

Some of the images contained here belong to me and are tagged as such, all other work is credited whenever possible or has active click-through links to get to the original posting.

    New Post: Characters Welcome #LarryShoots #Photography

    Feels good to finally be able to share some work I shot back in the summer. In June, I had the opportunity to work with my very talented friend and New Jersey based rapper, James McNamara, better known as Dirty Mac. He had been working on his sophomore album, Service With A Style, and decided to reach out to me to do some photo work for the album. It would be the first time we really got to work…

    Pretty much completely in love with this track and video right now.

    Dirty Mac - Service With A Style

    Back in June, I had the opportunity to work with my very talented friend, Dirty Mac. We set out to do some photography for his sophomore album, Service With A Style.

    We worked in a restaurant well before opening and shot for about 2 hours before calling it quits. The interior lighting and light from the windows of the restaurant actually worked really well for providing a great feel and I really didn’t need to worry about setting up or using my own lights.

    These are a few of my favorite shots from the shoot (including the shot that ended up being the album cover).

    His album is available now: itunes.apple.com/us/album/service-with-a-style/id762082557

    Arctic Monkeys were pretty fantastic tonight #music #vscocam

    A few months ago I shot an interview with the New Jersey rapper Dirty Mac about his new album. Check it out.

    Excerpt of Dirty Mac performing “Get Back” (Rode VideoMic GO Test) from Larry McAllister II on Vimeo.

    Shot on January 17, 2014 at the Lyrical Graffiti show at The Old Bay in New Brunswick, NJ.

    This served as a little bit of a test of the new Rode VideoMic GO which I purchased over the holidays. I have to be honest, I am very surprised by how well it performed. I still have some other scenarios that I will need to test it in, but right now I know it is good for small show setups.
