Sprite Green GOOD Music Event

Posted: September 20th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Photography |

These are photos from the Sprite Green GOOD Music showcase that went down in Chicago on 9.18.09. Our production company Mid C Media filmed the event so I took the chance to snap a few photos. I missed the first half of the show but I did catch the last song from Consequence and full sets from Common, Kid Cudi, and a song from Mr. Hudson. Pretty dope event…….that cost Coca Cola 650K! Kanye was supposed to show up but my sources informed me Kanye has been laying low ever since the Taylor Swift incident at the VMA’s.

Haystak and Stogie @ Pops – 8.13.09

Posted: September 11th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Friends, Photography |

This is a set I shot at Pops last month for the homie Stogie. Pretty tight show with Haystak (from Nashville) headlining, Stogie co-headling, and Kenny Knox + 6 other groups opening up. I always like shooting at Pops because people really get into the music and don’t give a fuck who is watching.

The Great Hangover Tour – Photo ReCap

Posted: September 10th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Friends, Photography |

Working for Ch’rewd has never been the average 9-5 gig, and this past month was no different. We recently started managing a new group from the West Coast, Pac-Div. These guys are 100% real hip-hop from LA, CA. The group consists of MiBBs, Like, Be Young, and DJ Sean G. I was assigned to road manage the groups first official promo tour, following The Great Hangover Tour with B.o.B., Asher Roth, and Kid Cudi. This was my first tour as an acting road manger. We drove 9,000 miles in 3 weeks, covering Kansas City, Denver, Park City, Las Vegas, LA, San Fran, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Houston, and Atlanta. Talk about the madness! My serenity came with experiences like driving the van through a Texas lighting storm listening to Atliens or at 6 AM with the sun rising over Lake Pontchartrain on US 10 headed to Atlanta with the whole crew passed out. It gave me a lot of time to digest the events that took place each night. As a photographer it gave me a chance to capture some great moments out on the road. I met some great people out there that I hope to cross paths with in the near future. Here are my favorite pics from the trip. (44 Total)
