Guns, weed and naked women—Estevan Oriol likes to keep it simple

Los Angeles born Estevan Oriol’s career started when he was a bouncer at hip-hop clubs. Soon, he began managing bands like Cypress Hill and House of Pain. During those tours, he became interested in photography and went on to become one of the most sought after photographers in the game (we had to). Oriol’s photos of celebrities like Dennis Hopper, Dr. Dre and Juliet Lewis are striking, but he is more well known for his gritty work with gangs on the streets of L.A. Currently a photo editor for Juxtapoz, Oriol's latest work, "L.A. Woman," is a sexy calendar featuring models like Rosa Acosta, Justene Jaro, Amiee Josellia and others. But this isn’t just an L.A. boy’s fantasy—it’s ours too.
