DE­SCRIBE YOUR O FFICE? My o ce and stu­dio is a loft in a 1920s o ce build­ing on the cor­ner of Hol­ly­wood and Vine, in down­town Hol­ly­wood. My stu­dio has one large room, a sep­a­rate o ce space where my as­sis­tant works, plus a kitchen and bath­room, with shower. I was lucky to have my in­te­rior de­signer wife An­nie Kelly de­sign my stu­dio, with a pal­ette of clean white mod­ern fur­ni­ture as a back­ground to my large colour prints hang­ing in the room. WHAT INI­TIALLY AP­PEALED TO YOU ABOUT THE SPACE? I loved the his­toric Hol­ly­wood lo­ca­tion, and the build­ing, which is home to mu­si­cians, record pro­duc­ers, and other en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try per­son­nel. The valet park­ing and door­man are pretty great too. It is walk­ing dis­tance from where I live in the Hol­ly­wood Hills. WHAT ARE YOUR DESK ES­SEN­TIALS? I don’t re­ally have a desk. I work wher­ever I put down my lap­top. WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR WORKSPACE? It is where my ­lm ar­chives and books are stored. With all of my ­les and pho­tos on the wall, it would be easy to guess that I am a pho­tog­ra­pher. WHAT’S THE VIEW? Pure Hol­ly­wood – the Boule­vard lined with palm trees, glimpses of the Hol­ly­wood Hills and the dis­tant Getty Mu­seum. I can even see planes tak­ing o† from LAX air­port. COULD YOU DE­SCRIBE A TYP­I­CAL DAY? I join my as­sis­tant in the morn­ing and work through the day’s photo re­quests and as­sign­ments. WHAT IS A DREAM DESK PIECE YOU WOULD BUY RIGHT NOW? Ac­tu­ally a dream chair – the Eero Aarnio ‘Ball’ chair would be per­fect! IF YOU COULD LO­CATE YOUR STU­DIO ANY­WHERE ELSE, WHERE WOULD THAT BE? I’m very happy where it is... tim­street­
