I shot a few quick portraits of Scottie B and Cullen Stalin for a City Paper article, on stands now.
been shooting a lot lately… here are a few shots i like:
i haven’t seen this band – one of my favorite bands – since… 2000? 2001? I saw them on tour on in name and blood in new orleans. they played with zeke who was (i think) a stoner-y rock band that incorporated clog dancing into their set. even though the dudes in mcd tried unsuccessfully to pick up my then-girlfriend in front of me, they were still awesome. i don’t know how much longer this reunion tour lasts, but go see them if you get a chance.
benny stixx @ no rule
i shot benny recently for his label, bmore original, and wanted to go see him spin. it was a good time, AND he has a new record coming out really soon. get it from bmore original.
unruly records & bmore original + no rule fam
while benny was spinning, DJ Excel from bmore original brought it to my attention just how many baltimore club & hip-hop artists were in the room… so we origanized a quick group shot. from L to R: booman, chris brooks, scottie b, dj excel, rogue, cullen stalin, jimmy jones, derek from unruly, emmy, kw griff
vincent black shadow
i shot these for Vincent Black Shadow’s upcoming album Baltamont, which is now cancelled since they broke up. look them up if you haven’t hard them, they were a really good noisy punk/rock band.
Monday night I stopped by a packed Metro Gallery and caught the Get Em Mamis, a local rap duo… they killed it, the crowd loved them. Check out the photos here.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of shooting and attending the 15th Anniversary Party for Unruly Records, My Crew Be Unruly at Paradox in Baltimore. Scottie B, K-Swift (one of her last performances), Diplo, Blaqstarr, DJ Class, Stretch Armstrong, DJ Sega, Say Whut, Dave Nada, Tittsworth, Mz Streamz, and many more DJs and MCs were there to make it a ridiculously amazing party… Check out the set here.
