Mobb Deep in Nashville

Rap icon Prodigy from Mobb Deep passed away recently. I had the opportunity to photograph them for Red Bull when they came through Nashville at Exit/In. It was a memorable show (not just because I broke a lens). They got to the venue right before their set, no soundcheck, and left right after. Just a brief passing backstage. Also, there was the guy at the front of the stage flipping everyone off the whole time. RIP, Prodigy.

Snow-themed photoshoot

Since it's nearly 100 degrees here, I thought I would share a shoot we did a while back when it was much, much colder. Jessica really stepped up, given the freezing conditions. We worked for several hours outside and in a non-temperature controlled environment. Thanks again to the team:

Here's a BTS shot to give you an idea. For these, we were outside using two AB 800's. The key with a beauty dish and the rim with the 7" reflector and a grid (I don't remember what size). Did I mention it was snowing?

The Eyes and Ears - Interview

I was contacted recently by The Eyes and Ears to discuss my work. I love talking about photography and it was nice to be on the other side of the interviewer's desk for once. It's good to periodically stop and look back.

If you're interested, I discussed this shoot with Brooke Waggoner, photographing my heroes, and the value of baby steps.
