I made this portrait of A$AP Ferg for NPR Music last month using a gridded speedlight in a dark corner at NPR HQ. These five minute portraits sometimes make me nervous but he was a total delight. I think the best thing you can do is immediately get too close — the worst pictures, to me, are the ones that are coolly distant for no real reason. What a guy.
Made some candid portraits of Dipset backstage before their reunion show last month and then photograph their performance from the stage. It was tight. Hell Rell showed up. Hey Juelz. Sup Jim. Hi Killa. Freeky!
