One of my big endeavor and perk is to be able to shoot big stars when I am photographing the club scenes.
I got to work together with famous people like Steve Aoki, Hed Kandi, Bloody Beetroots, just to name a few.
While it is easier to just wait at the right moment to take a shot, I prefer working together with these artist to create the kind of feel and look that I want. Depending on the kind of music/performance that they are doing.
Most people do not get is the little thing about the artist. Like for Steve Aoki, I managed to get a snapshot of his headphones, which is DIM MAK branded.One of the more significant pictures that I took was of DJ Lisa Kensington. She was rumored to be an ex Playboy Supermodel and we could see why not.
It was on that rare occasion where you have another person with a compact camera or a mobile phone taking a picture as soon as you hit the shutter button. I called these as “borrowed flash” where the image is perfectly exposed and brings the artistry into play.
These are just the few example of the great people that I have manage to photograph. Given the chance, I would love to work with them again,perhaps on a more personal level.
