This upcoming Saturday on May 13th my work will be on display at the first ever Democratic National Committee millennial fundraiser. The fundraiser is part of an initiative to get us millennials more engaged, interested, and involved in the political process. Some of my good friends are putting this event together and I'm honored to have my work shown. For more information on how to donate and/or attend the event check here. Below are some photos I shot during their meeting about the event.
Last month I directed and shot a video for my brother J Stock's single "Stock Marley PT. 2" off his upcoming project Propaganda. Check it out below and be sure to look out for Propaganda coming soon. J Stock will also be headed out on tour next month with Mick Jenkins. More information about the tour here.
Last night I had the opportunity to shoot TDE member Isaiah Rashad's performance at the El Club in southwest Detroit. Isaiah is on his Lil Sunny Tour; touring the country and overseas in Europe. He put on a great show to a sold out crowd. He was full of energy and really engaged with his fans. There wasn't a single dull moment during his set. Excited to see what his already successful career will take him. Check the photos below that I captured during his performance.
2016, a year of blessings. I truly realized this year that if you speak what you want into existence you can experience and do anything you want. I was able to travel to many places including Cuba, pursue my passion for photography and videography full-time, and create with talented individuals along the way. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me. Steadily keeping positive energy around me and working hard to accomplish my goals. Being persistent and confident in everything I do. I appreciate everybody shoe embarked on this Project 366 journey with me and those who supported me in anyway this year. Whether it was buying my work, hiring me for my services, or giving me words of encouragement and inspiration. Thank you for the love and support. Posting a photo everyday for a year was challenging but also very rewarding. So much more to achieve. Shirts will be available for pre-order next week along with a Project 366 video re-capping my year. This just the beginning... THE MOTTO... IMAGINE. CREATE. EXPOSE. 366/366
At the end of October I had the opportunity to travel to Cuba courtesy of Global Jet Black. Life changing experience for me. Being able to interact with the Cuban people, learning the true history of the country, and really indulging in the culture made for the perfect trip. It truly was an unforgettable time that I will remember forever. 10 days, 3 cities (Varadero, Trinidad, & Havana), 3000+ photos taken, and a lot of Rum, cigars, and classic cars lol. I encourage everyone to explore Cuba if the opportunity presents itself. Check out the recap below and a special thank you to Global Jet Black for making this trip possible.
Nneka came to the studio a couple months back in October. I wanted to test out my blue background in the studio at the time. We've been meaning work together for a while now so this studio session was long overdue. Nneka is an awesome photographer who travels the world capturing timeless photos. Make sure you check her work here.
I've been slacking on my blog posts, but for good reason. Working on projects, traveling, and client work has taken a lot of my time and this portion of my site kind of got neglected. But I'm (somewhat) caught up and have a lot to share so stay tuned for more regular blog posts. As always appreciate the continuous support!
Last month I had the opportunity to assist on a Complex interview with Danny Brown, mainly taking behind the scene photos. We started off the day at Assemble Sound where the majority of the interview was conducted, then headed downtown to the Lafayette Coney Island where Danny and the interviewer had the classic coney dogs. After the lunch Danny rode with members of the Slow Roll and chopped it up with a few people. Great day of shooting and Danny was real cool down to earth dude. Check the Complex interview here, and check some behind the scene photos I captured during that day below.
