The Complete Randomness of Sarah Dope

I'm a photographer, graphic designer, social media & digital marketing specialist, and merch girl who's dabbled in modeling in the past... but if you really want to get down to it, I'm just a silly girl who likes silly things and enjoys life.

I currently work in Social Media, Digital Marketing + Creative Direction, mostly with Rhymesayers Entertainment. However, opinions and interests here are my own, not that of any of my clients.

Hi! I saw your pictures from the House Of Blues LA show under the Mindless Self Indulgence tag. Truly amazing photography! I was also at the show, in front against the barricade. Just curious if you got any photos you haven't posted online, from the show? If so, I'd love to see them! Also curious as to if I may be in any of them. That'd be awesome. Either way, thanks so much!
