“10 years ago, if you asked me what I thought of Los Angeles I probably would have said I didn’t like it. I was the person that came to visit, only saw the main roads and never explored,” says documentary sports and lifestyle photographer Adam Moran. “Eventually I moved here with my wife and I love it more and more each day. LA grows on you, and it’s one of the few places where you can be in an urban setting, at the beach, in the country, on a mountain, or at a lake without really leaving the city.”

Over the past decade, Adam has travelled to six continents, accumulating over a million air miles during his career as an action sports photographer. “A lot of my career has been focused on the mountains and winter sports,” he explains, “so when I’m home in LA I love to get out and just shoot whatever grabs my eye. Sometimes it’s a person, a basketball game, or all the varying architecture the city has.”

One thing Adam adores about Los Angeles is its vast urban sprawl, which leaves countless unturned stones when it comes to discovering and capturing moments. However, it’s the downtown area that has intrigued him most as of late. “It’s come a long way from a place that felt all business, and lifeless, to an amazing area with new restaurants, shops, and hotels. Beyond that, LA has much more to offer than 72 degrees and sunny every day.”
