Y-S 1 Minute Freestyle

I’ve been working with my boy Y-S for over a year now and it’s always awesome working together. We just shot a promo video recently and we decided to shoot a short freestyle clip for a song on his album More Musix called “Pray 4 Me”. Check it below

We shot this in my neck of the woods in Ashland at an abandoned building that’s right next to my house. I love the look of this building as well as the lighting. The windows just make for beautiful light and the atmosphere really sets the mood for the video.. You can expect the promo video to have a similar feel to the freestyle when it drops we worked hard on it and I’m really excited for you guys to check it out.

Push Yourself…

Y-S is hard at work and you guys should be looking forward to his next release, I’m not sure when or what he’s got coming but he assured me he’s grindin’. Everytime we shoot together I try and push myself and try new things and on this shoot I just really wanted to take my time. That’s a very important thing to do sometimes. I’ve really been trying to be the absolute best that I can be and taking your time can make such a significant difference in the quality of your work. I can’t wait for you guys to see what I got coming in the future and remember if you would like to book a shoot go ahead and hit me up via the contact page!

Shooting with the Nuw4ve Crew

Shooting with these 3 was a blast. The first location we went to was a pink abandoned trap house near the west side. It was really cloudy (which I love fr) and the light was super soft which made for some amazing photos. We did a small photoshoot here before we went on to shoot a video to a single off of their latest proect .WAV called “Live”. Me and Chanze met months ago talking about linking up and I’m glad it finally happened. I really tried to push myself on this video and try new things and i think overall I’m pretty satisfied, as always there are things that maybe I didn’t think of or whatever but that' just turns into a learning experience then.

Live

We really tried to tell a story in this video and I made decisions creatively that ended up prolonging the shoot, but it was worth it. It’s always worth it to take your time and make sure you get it right.

The video is really hype with eerie vibes. I used more effects in this video than I usually do just because I thought it would benefit the video and I wanted to see what effects I could come up with on my own, and it was super f***ing fun. We had a character get robbed at one point and so I also shot my second action sequence ever I can’t wait for you guys to see it! I also experimented a lot with the audio during that scene (the music cuts out). I love trying new things and I think you can tell I did that in this shoot.

These photos are definitely a personal favorite of mine I love the pink color palette we used as well as the style that these guys had. As far as camera gear goes I use a Panasonic GH4 and I had a 20mm f1.7 and a 30mm f1.4 on me. I tried to use the environment as much as possible to help me in creating depth and an interesting composition. I like putting different things in the foreground such as leaves or glass, etc. to frame my subject. I think it just draws your eyes where they need to be in a more interesting way.s
