Legendary Los Angeles-bred photographer/director Estevan Oriol recently sat down with the folks at LabelPushers.com to talk about his beginnings in the art of photography, what advice he’d give to newcomers, and how things have changed since he came into the game.

In the clip, Oriol gives a brief history about his start, from going on the road as the tour manager for Cypress Hill and House of Pain and capturing  photos from the concerts, to joining a car club and documenting the car and street culture of Los Angeles through his lens.
