COME AS YOU ARE (Part 2)

Hollywood has experienced a shift over the last couple of years. From the land of make believe even tinsel towns most glittering stars are seeking deeper meaning.
Gurus Magazine is a Los Angeles based wellness and lifestyle periodical, published by Derek Warburton. The magazine’s first cover star was late actress and equal rights activist, Anne Heche. Before shooting the cover images, Heche asked Warburton what he wanted the publication to represent in three words, to which he replied, “truth, passion, and authenticity.” Those words now discretely appear on every cover, as a form of protection to all who grace the cover, and they remain the mission statement for the magazine.
On March 8th and 9th at the Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, Gurus Magazine hosted its first annual Pre Oscar-Celebrity Gifting Retreat produced by Rachel Wilson owner of Film Craft.  With our mission statement in mind, we wanted to create a special experience for our community that could be cherished. We created the “Come As You Are” portrait studio.
Celebrity fashion photographer Josh Fogel assisted by Ricky Steel and Christian Raices captured our guests in the most beautiful black and white portraits with hair and makeup touch ups by Joel Sebastian, Bongbong Buan and Norman Salao sponsored by Fashion Group International Rising Star winners Saints and Sinners hair care.
No retouching, no filters, just truth, a passion for self expression and living in their own authenticity our guests opened their souls to Josh’s lense to capture beautiful, raw, joyful and sometimes haunting images.
Actors, influencers, performers & friends were welcome to express themselves. We welcome you to enjoy “Come As You Are”.
