Salute Erick and Joe for putting me on last minute.

Van Styles x Jason Peterson Q+A

final_img_9276

As part of the Miami Street Photography Festival 2016, a photo walk and Q+A were prepared to take place in downtown Miami. Very important QnA.
I missed the photo walk cuz I’m fried and went to the Leica store first but made it to the q+a and  gained awesome insight on the craft. It also took me about 45 minutes to get a Publix sub before I went so Im surprised I made it on time at all. Also took 10 minutes to check out in the express lane behind one person. While waiting, a dude dressed as Mr Incredible grabbed his backpack that he’d left at customer service, then stood in front of the automatic doors with his hands up like he had super powers to open the doors. I digress.

“Fuck. Idk shit about photography” – @jasonmpeterson
(I think he knows a thing or two)

@vanstyles (paraphrased)
– Focus on your craft and the recognition n $ will come in due time.

I asked a question about infringement. Jason went on to say what he’d do if companies are knowingly taking his photos without coughing up the $$$. His reply was very Chicago and very appreciated.

Pete Rock x CL Smooth at Juxtapoz

Shoutout to Nick Hook cuz he got me to the backstage and I found my way to the top of the container for aerial shots while he ate exotic foods.

Redman x Method Man at iii Points

Redman and Method Man easily top performances of the weekend. A drone was flown on stage to deliver blunts and that about sums it all up.

Red Bull United States of Bass – Miami

 

Miami Bass. Bless you. And also bless the unwritten language of ass shaking. Bass music is like a holy hymn to a rite of passage for people that actually grew up in Miami. If you didn’t grow up here then you might dont fully understand, but that doesnt matter cuz it feels good to your spirit and also read the 3rd sentence. There was a little something for everyone in music styles and seeing/hearing how cities across the country put their spin on the bass sound. Luke, Laz and Craze were essential to have at this party. Uncle Luke is forever the mayor of Miami and you can argue wit’cho grandma about the credibility of that statement. Laz is synonymous with Miami bass and Craze is without question one of the best dj’s on the planet. Egyptian Lover is OG triple OG. Sliink, Spinn and Earl repped Jersey as they should. TT the Artist went off and its always dope to see artists for the first time put on a great performance. We got a bit of a history lesson from Laz n Craze explaining how much the city has changed and how the bass sound ultimately has its roots in Miami. Just know! Booty dancing is not as prevalent as it once was, but it lives on. Its a sacred dance that must be passed on from generation to generation so that the earth continues on its proper course. So when I say dance like your life depends on it, I mean it.
