Tyler Mumma is an enigma. The first time I met him was at a photoshoot for SABRE. I was sitting on the floor at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, when he walked in barefoot...he had black cats tattoed on his feet so I picked up my Pentax and took a photograph. A few months later I asked him if i could take some portraits of him and he was totally up for it as long as he could bring his rifle. Beers and mushrooms followed.
