Welcome to our generation’s 35mm film photography company. Based in Venice, California, GUSTO35 creates one-of-a-kind double exposure film, and then we develop, scan and digitize your photos for you. Our mission is to bridge the gap between analog art and the digital world, while building a community that supports one another in turning meaningful experiences in permanent memories.
This course was created in hopes of giving students the practical information needed to develop their dream career. Being from a small town should never hinder your development and aspirations. The Hidden Cloud is meant to have an individual look far past their surroundings and begin to craft their own game plan to success. With a little bit of planning and a bullet list of steps anything is possible.
No Love Out West is an art-driven collective, but most importantly, we are a family. Los Angeles can be grueling, but we are steadfast in our vision to maintain a creative atmosphere that caters to passion-based in Love—not money. Together, we bring art to life across the board: films, music, fashion, design, photography, curated art partnerships, and more.
