That's SERIOUS!

Last weekend, I was hired to shoot a local rap artist for his upcoming album and I mentally approached the project with the same "fashiony" style that I usually generate.
But then I got to thinking...
This is a rap artist, not a fashion model.
TOTALLY different, right?
So I decided to try something a little different and see what I get.

Lots o' lights and some photoshopage...




This is 'D.I.' a.k.a Mark Auguste. He entertained me by seeing images on the back of the camera and exclaiming...Dude, Thats SERIOUS! I *think* serious means awesome, right Mark? ;)








D.I brought along a few friends who are on his record label, so we grabbed a few shots of them as well....just for fun. Meet Mingo.




and E.Pinero





DI, Mingo and EP, you gentlemen were super fun. Thanks for not laughing at my crazy white girl dancing and good luck with your new projects.

Special thanks to Doug for coming along and helping me out too!
