580 Reasons to be Ready and Stay Ready

580 Reasons to be Ready and Stay Ready

Recently, I traveled up to Philly, from DC, to do some wok with singer Tyrese. He had an in-store CD signing, to promote his new "Black Rose" album.

I packed a camera bag, and hit the highway. I arrived a few hours before the event start time, which gave me plenty of time to find good parking, eat, pee, and anything else. Upon arrival, I captured some images of the line of fans outside the store, which started at 7am that morning.

Sony PXW-X180 Camcorder Review

Sony PXW-X180 Camcorder Review

Recently, I had the opportunity to test-run Sony’s x180 Pro Camcorder, during a recording session with singer Anthony Hamilton. I work with Anthony on a regular basis, capturing photos and video content - normally, with a DSLR or a mirrorless compact. That’s mainly because it’s a lot of run & gun work.

An announcement was made to all of the ladies in attendance, directing them to the room. Immediately, a line formed, and my day started.

Jidenna at WPGC 95.5's Birthday Bash | 06 03 2015

Last night, I did some behind the scenes video coverage of new artist, Jidenna, at WPGC's Birthday Bash concert. I think it was my first Birthday Bash, as a Photographer.

I'm a fan of Jidenna's music, so I was excited to work with him, and see him perform. When I finally got the "Okay" to cover him, hours before the show, I hurried to shave and trim my beard nicely, and got dressed in the finest "Respect the Shooter" t-shirt I could find. ***Available here. [ shameless plug ].
