Yearbook photographer and A/V club
Mark Hunter may resemble a young Jerry Garcia, but the 24-year-old with the nom de shutterbug "the Cobra Snake" is actually closer in spirit to the love child of Andy Warhol and Weegee. The candids king of the club-kids set, self-anointed chronicler of street fashion and reseller of secondhand threads is well on his way to becoming the fashion crowd's house photographer.
Following in the footsteps of legions who've headed west to reinvent themselves, the rag-trade reality show "Project Runway" changed channels and production companies and relocated. Heidi Klum and increasingly less-than-mild-mannered mentor Tim Gunn are now basking in a sun-drenched, celebrity-stocked sixth season set in downtown L.A. and airing on Lifetime.
Although the show is expected to shift coasts from season to season (all but the final episodes of a New York-based Season 7 are already in the can), the first cycle to touch down here makes L.A.'s offerings seem so picture-perfect you may find yourself searching for the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce in the credits.
