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.

Who knows.
