Randall Slavin was born in Hollywood, CA. While working a dead end job in a gas station, Slavin wandered into a local photography studio & struck up a friendship with the owner. He took the young Slavin under his wing & taught him a few photography basics, then promptly fired him a few months later. Faced with nowhere else to turn, he put one foot in front of the other & never looked back. Slavin had his photography debut in the prestigious New York Times Magazine. His work has appeared in Vanity Fair, GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone & many others. Slavin had his first exhibit in Paris in 2008 & a solo show at Annenberg Space For Photography in 2011. He received the 2011 Hollywood Style Award for "Photographer of the Year" & currently splits his time between LA & NYC.
