Last week I had the opportunity to shoot two of my favorite rappers of all time at The Observatory in Santa Ana. I’m not above being starstruck and I’m happy about that. These guys are some of the last ones left. Method Man is a living Hip Hop almanac and if there were a Bible for rap music (and there should be one), it wouldn’t be complete without the book of Method Man. Then there’s Redman. Redman is the quintessential emcee. For someone on his level, someone who’s made records with everyone from Biggie and 2pac to Eminem, KRS and LL Cool J, he’s still real enough to shake every hand and sign every piece of merch thrown at him until his own security forces him to stop – and he apologizes to everyone he couldn’t get to. He’s hands down top 5 dead or alive. Also, Method Man liked the photo of himself on my Instagram this morning and I about burned my own house down just because I didn’t know how else to process my excitement. Thanks to Out da House Productions for the media pass and thanks to my homie Bianca for letting me borrow her fly ass 70-200 f/2.8.
If you like my photos, thanks. If you want to work together, contact me about scheduling a photo shoot or hiring me to take pics at your event. I’m not an asshole.
