Foreword, Scott Caan: Photographs Vol. 1

my kink is when people admit i was right
Предисловие Скотта к «Photographs Vol. 1»:

“When I was a kid someone told my father that they thought he was a great artist, and he laughed. I asked him what was so funny, and he said, “Picasso is an artist; I’m an actor.”
So I started acting when I was old enough to realize that I would do anything not to have a nine-to-five job. At the time I had no idea what an impact the art would have on me. I joined a theater group. I obsessively studied plays, playwrights, actors, and directors. I lived and breathed theater. I lived and breathed acting, and writing. I really felt that I wanted to be an artist. I wanted to express myself. I wrote plays, I wrote movies, I acted in movies. Then I started to direct. I made movies, I made plays. I even wrote shitty songs.
Whether frustrating, rewarding, painful, or just embarassing, I usually felt full… That’s all we really want.
So when I didn’t, I would take a picture.
I took a bunch of photos with a bunch of different cameras that were all given to me by my father. The guy who says he’s not an artist… he’s wrong.
As an artist today, I think it is almost impossible to do exactly what you want. You have to listen to other people. You have to work with opinions. You have to change. Purity in most art forms is a struggle. Certainly acting or writing. Especially directing. So much that sometimes the art gets lost. The feeling of it anyway. Having your ideas, cognitive or not, and following through precisely… Not impossible, but for one reason or another, really hard.
Photography, to me, is pure. It’s the person holding the camera’s eye, and that’s it!
Like it or not, it is what it is.
Hope you like my photos, but they won’t change either way. They are what they are. That’s what I love about them.”

Highsnobiety TV – Scott Caan for The Hundreds

Статья про Скотта для Western Civ Magazine:

— Scott Caan thrives on pushing boundaries on land and sea

There’s no denying it. Scott Caan is a charismatic guy. Even now, at 11 a.m. on a Sunday morning, his one day a week off from the daily rigors of shooting the second season of Hawaii Five-O, he’s on. Lounging on the lanai of his two-story, Mediterranean-style white stucco house nestled on the slopes of Diamond Head, he’s chatting about wrapping up the eighth and final season of Entourage, the HBO show about making it big in Hollywood.

At 35, Caan should know a thing or two about Hollywood. He’s lived around the entertainment industry his whole life. It’s the family business. Acting is in his blood. And, if you’ve seen him in such notable films as the Ocean’s Trilogy and Gone in Sixty Seconds, you know it’s true. He’s good. Real good.

But, somehow, he doesn’t seem entirely comfortable claiming himself as a bona fide movie star. He refers to “the arts” sarcastically, not pretentiously. And he’s seemingly more at ease with being seen as a regular guy from the neighborhood that can act then a back lot big shot. Beyond acting, he enjoys a variety of personal interests like surfing, skating, bikes and hip-hop, as well as screen writing and photography, which he discovered later on in life.

Growing up in LA, he admits to having tough times at home. It was an unconventional upbringing with mom and dad, Sheila Ryan and James Caan. So, at 13, he ended up connecting with some local kids he looked up to and wanted to emulate. “I hung out with kids that I thought were interesting, and they just happened to be hoodlums, B-boys, criminals, skaters and surfers.”

The Appendix: How to Photograph Naked Women, by Scott Caan

Nine tips gleaned from our conversation with actor Scott Caan:

1. Temporarily reside in a hotel.
2. Date an uninhibited artist type.
3. When she asks you "How come you never take photos of me?" say, "It's just not my thing."
4. When she insists, take out your camera.
5. Use any available light. Use the hotel-room lamp if you have to.
6. Pick the right pose. "The idea is to come up with something that you find beautiful. Sometimes something raunchy is something beautiful to somebody, but to me, that's not it."
7. Don't force it. "Anything you shoot photos of, it's what you keep in the frame. You look at something, and if you really want to take a photo of it, take a photo of it. The second you start adjusting things and making it work, that's when it becomes photography as a job, and that's just not my style."
8. Call ten female acquaintances and ask them, "Hey, can I shoot photos of you?"
9. Repeat process with each.

Со съемок Hawaii Five-0 2x02

my kink is when people admit i was right
Quick story about this pic – Scott Caan (Danno) was filming a scene where he is on this street corner reading a newspaper. Suddenly he recognizes someone of “interest” and makes a dash for it across the street. Problem is a car with Japanese tourists came quickly around the corner at the same time! Fans and on lookers thought the near miss was scripted and part of the show !!!

Scott took it like a pro and shook the entire incident off. He was a pure gentleman about it. What wasn’t soo funny was the look on the Japanese driver and his family when they realized that not only did they just drive right thru a live film set, they almost slammed right into one the main stars of the show !!!! OMG !!!! All Scott did was kept yelling to the producers “keep rollin”, “keep rollin” …

Surf's Up LA: Scott Caan

my kink is when people admit i was right

offthewalltv: Scott is now best know as playing Danno on "Hawaii Five-O" and Scott Lavin on "Entourage" but is a life long skater and surfer. He shreds. He's also an accomplished photographer, writer, and director. In the 90's he was in a hip hop group called the Whouliganz that toured with Cypress Hill. How much more LA can you get?
