8 • LMGI COMPASS | Summer 2019 CONTRIBUTORS Evan Peller Evan Peller is an award- winning photographer, location manager and world traveler, living in Los Angeles. As a location manager, Evan always has his eye on the shot. He captures the moment by seeing, not looking. Whether it's locals at the Floating Market in Thailand, or a leopard on a morning stroll in S. Africa, Evan brings the viewer into the scene with him. Evan has worked on feature films such as She's All That, Fracture and Donnie Darko. His television credits include MadTV, Workaholics and Key and Peele. We welcome contributions to the LMGI Compass. Your story ideas, articles, and photography belong on these pages and on our website. Articles focus on aspects of location management and scouting. Photographs for the "Martini Shot" are exemplary location shots, with an evocative, artistic component that take it up a notch … a hero shot in a VERTICAL orientation.
