NIGHTS AND DAYS TOUR

A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to tour with one of my favorite artist, Montell Fish. The tour was for his latest album, Nights and Days. I had never toured before so when the opportunity came up, I knew I had to take it. We would travel to 7 different cities (east coast) spreading them over the course of 2 weeks.

During the tour, Montell was accompanied by Ecclesia, an exceptional visual/music group from Florida. The group consists of three people, but for this tour, only one was able to make it (Andrew). For three of the dates, we combined tours with Rivers and Robots. They were also on tour at the time so it only made sense to team up for a few days.

Overall, the tour in itself was great. Like I said before, this was my first tour so I didn’t know what to expect in the beginning. It was challenging/ tiring at times but ultimately, I feel I learned a lot from it and got some images I was stoked about. Touring can be exhausting at times, but it is so worth it. To be able to document a tour that is changing so many lives, I would 100% do it again. (That being said, if you are looking for a tour photographer, feel free to contact me ;))

Here are my favorite images from my time on the road. From worship to the merch table to spontaneous shoots while we were getting gas, here they are. Lastly, I just wanna thank Montell for bringing me along and having me document the tour. It was a great time and I can't wait for the next one!

Experimentation

For this shoot, I tried some new techniques that I had never tried together before. I messed with strobes, projectors, and also shutter drag all mixed into one shoot. All photos were produced in camera. I was super stoked with the results and I can’t wait to try more like it! Also shoutout to Kye for killing it on the other side of the camera too!

Street view

Day in LA

A couple of days ago, I and a group of friends ventured out to LA for a super spontaneous trip. We spent the day checking out the Griffith Observatory, getting some bomb coffee, and mobbing around the arts district looking for dope spots to shoot (photos as opposed to other things). During the day. I tried to challenge myself in shooting stuff I wouldn’t usually shoot. throughout the day, I tried looking at everything from a different point of view. I experimented with different light leaks, shadows, and also slow shutters. My goal was to create a story mainly with architecture and produce something that would be found in a coffee table book or even a still from a movie. The day, all in all was super fun and I can't wait to go on more “go with the flow” trips.

Tiffany DTR 11/3/17

Last week, I had the pleasure of shooting with Tiffany Simpson (@Tiffanysimpson_). It was only the second time we have shot together but it seems like every time we shoot, we make some of my favorite photos I've ever made. I made it a priority to focus on colors on this shoot and I think it worked out really well. Be sure to check out the full set below and let me know what you guys think! 

Lancer Palooza (Lecrae, Propaganda, Tori Kelly)

About a month ago, I had the opportunity of shooting some of my favorite artists at Cbu's conclusion to their welcome weekend, Lancer Palooza. I was able to shoot for Lecrae, Propaganda, and also with a surprise appearance, Tori Kelly. I was super stoked for this and am even more stoked on the results. It seems like every concert I shoot furthers my love for concert photography even more. Here are some of my favorites from the night, be sure to check them out and let me know what you think! 

P.s. Shout out to Mr. Dacus for helping make all this happen!
