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 artists 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 “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 managed to photograph. Given the chance, I would love to work with them again, perhaps on a more personal level.
