Gaea Woods caught our eye the other day with the portraits she took of her friend Samantha, seemingly covered all over in Vaseline. A bit of research led us to finding out that Gaea is actually a photographer with a whole host of talents under her belt, particularly when it comes to shooting things really close-up. Gaea was born in rural northern California and now resides in LA, where she’s making her career as a photographer.

“I used to work as an art director where I designed movie posters, but quit my job a few years ago and have been earning a living as a commercial photographer since then,” Gaea told us. “Right now I’m working on a project where I’m photographing 100 LA artists and their cars. I’m also excited about working with a friend’s magazine out of NY called Got A Girl Crush. Basically I get to shoot stories about rad girls here in LA of my choosing. At the top of my list right now is a girl who is a professional whistler.”

Stuck for something to listen to? Gaea is also a love and sex agony aunt over on KCHUNG radio with her pal Emma. You can check out Gaea’s ongoing series of LA artists in their cars and the rest of her bunch of fascinating projects over on her site.
