Introducing Wade Koch – the talented videographer behind the Presshaus LA studio tour that went up a few weeks ago!! He did such an amazing job that I felt compelled to invite him to be a Gentle-man!!
Here is his story : “I moved to LA six months ago from Iowa to chase my growing passion for film-making. I work for three commercial, photo and wedding companies: Shark Pig, Smilebooth and Our Labor of Love. I spend a lot of spare time writing script. I would love to write for film some day…But in the meantime I’m stoked about my life outside of the typical workforce, in which I’ve spent considerable time. For about ten years I thought I wanted to be a great musician…and I made some small accomplishments…but once I got my first camera, that passion pretty much left me, and I hardly touch my guitar anymore. In any case, it seems like my life/career seems to want to be centered around storytelling, so I try to be as versatile as possible. I’m still going through culture shock and adapting to the ways of LA (haircuts…lingo…traffic…attitude…) but I feel like I’m in the right place, and I’ll figure that stuff out eventually.”
…and now his favorite piece and why :
“None of them, really. I have yet to find a work outfit in which I totally feel like myself. I’m used to wearing a uniform to work…and now that I work for myself I need to get on top of my style. I think it has to do with making purchases that I really dig rather than what I think is ‘LA’. I guess it’s a process of building confidence…”
