About Paisley

Paisley Bruise is a New York born photographer who resides in Los Angeles.

Paisley studied Animation and Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. He then moved to Chicago to complete a writing program at the Second City Conservatory.

Using improvisational techniques in tandem with his eye for design, Paisley photographs Los Angeles nightlife by drawing the subjects in front of his lens out of their shell through his own body language and Absurdist sense of humor. This unique way of directing produces images full of life and motion that break free from typical posed shots.

With an archive of over 300,000 photographs spanning four years of documentation, he is hard at work on developing a photo book for release in 2017.
