Photographer, Creative Director, and Art Director in Los Angeles, California
The burgeoning Los Angeles underground music and art scene brought forth ideas that inspired Ammo (aka Amberlie Bankoff) to capture the underbelly of the city that flourished in her teenage years. Always surrounding herself by eccentric personalities and captivating fashion seekers, she documented a unique world most will never see.
Ammo has a distinct style all her own, merging stylized fashion with a certain grittiness that preserves the femininity of the women she photographs. Moving from photography to directing she is still able to sustain that same raw edge.
Ammo graduated from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco with a BFA in photography. Bouncing between the art and commerce world, she usualy has a variety of ongoing projects including art shows, album covers, lookbooks, music videos and fashion films.
