photos by LA based photojournalist Jonathan Alcorn

Was hired to photograph the construction of the new W Hollywood and an adjacent new condo complex, which takes up basically a whole city block at Hollywood and Vine. After a tour of the site, and shooting from the street, I knew it would be awesome to get a photo from an adjacent rooftop , but in my experience building security has never allowed me to obtain access without "prior approval" which usually means "no chance" . Well, yesterday was my lucky day, a very cool security guy allowed me access to a Sunset Blvd building rooftop.
