August 27th, 2016 - Bud Light put on a great party at PlayStation Theater and I was privileged to go and enjoy not only the good performances but free beer and free pizza. I was definitely feeling it the day after, ha.
I was introduced to Adria through a good friend of mine. She's his colleague but importantly, an aspiring R&B singer. She has a single out right now titled "All Night" and I liked her look so I asked him to connect us. Planning for the shoot took a few weeks because of scheduling but we finally decided on a location in Long Island City. Luck had it, we scheduled the shoot right smack in the middle of a heatwave with temperatures reaching mid-90s by 10:30am when we met. Even through the sweltering heat, we all braved it through, shooting in various nearby locations plus a wardrobe change. Here is the result of that day.
2016 marked the first year of the Panorama Music Festival which was held at Randall's Island in NYC. I wasn't able to score any press access so I don't have much (any) performance photos but music festivals still serve as a good reminder why NYC is the greatest city on Earth, highlighted by people from all walks of life. To my fault, it took me a day to figure this out and I didn't bring my camera out on the first day, but that's what iPhones are for. Here's a combination of shots taken with my iPhone 6s and Fujifilm x100t. Enjoy!
