Today, I rolled through to Long Beach to shoot my good friend Sunni. First met this dude back in I think my 1st or 2nd year at CSULB when he complimented my sneakers as I stepped off the Student Union escalator. Somehow, we linked up, both as artists, and have been in contact/working together since. Sunni, and his older brother Cobe Obeah, are both songwriters/producers/hip-hop artists. I've had the pleasure of meeting the both of them, and most recently, photos that I took of Sunni a couple months back were featured in a magazine based in the UK, called VIPER magazine, where current acts such as Tinashe are featured in, and where Schoolboy Q graces the cover. So with that being my first print publication, I feel pretty cool lol.
Being said, pretty chill day today. Walked around the neighborhood and took some random shots. It was pretty hot though so it was pretty tiring. Had some intrigued neighborhood folks approach us about what we were doing, and one girl who drove by who was totally enamored by Sunni as he took off his shirt to change in the middle of the street lol. And again, shooting on location with peel apart polaroids is difficult because of the development/drying process. LOL.
