As the official photographer for hiphopsince1987.com, I had access to the stage and VIP areas, allowing me to capture unique and intimate moments of the performers. One of the highlights of the night for me was getting to photograph Kendrick Lamar's set. He is known for his electrifying live performances and I was excited to capture that energy in my photographs. I was able to shoot him performing his hit songs like "HUMBLE", "DNA" and "Alright" which were crowd's favorite. The crowd was going wild and it was an amazing experience to be able to capture that kind of energy in a photograph.

I also had the chance to photograph other big names such as Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Meek Mill. I also had the chance to capture the behind the scenes moments, from the performers getting ready to the crowd enjoying the concert.

Overall, it was a memorable experience for me, being able to photograph such a huge event and being able to share those photos with the world through hiphopsince1987.com was an amazing opportunity. Check out some of the images below!

Karl "Dice Raw" Jenkins commissions Sean Lassiter Photography for new press kit images" https://seanlassiter.com/blog/2023/1/karl-dice-raw-jenkins-commissions-sean-lassiter-photography-for-new-press-kit-images

Karl "Dice Raw" Jenkins, a well-known American hip-hop artist from Philadelphia, has recently commissioned Sean Lassiter Photography to capture images for his new presskit. Jenkins, who is associated with The Roots and the now-defunct musical group Nouveau Riche, has a storied career in the music industry.

Jenkins' journey in the music industry began while he was still in high school, when a member of The Roots' production team spotted him in a local talent show. The group quickly took the young rapper under their wing and decided to bring his talent along slowly. He made his debut in "The Lesson, Pt. 1" and soon after made a name for himself with cameos on "Episodes" and "Adrenaline," where his hard-hitting style complemented the heady rhymes of The Roots' leader Black Thought.

In 2000, Jenkins released his solo debut album, "Reclaiming the Dead" on MCA Records. He has also made guest appearances on several mixtapes and even recorded vocals for the entrance theme of a WWE wrestler. Additionally, Jenkins has been in the studio functioning as a co-writer and producer for The Roots, and working on his own material.

In recent years, Jenkins has turned his attention to the performing arts world and has written and produced a multitude of musicals, including "The Last Jimmy," a story of mass incarceration inspired by escaped slave Henry Box Brown. He also serves as the board-chair of The New Freedom Theaters of Philadelphia and the producing director of the Devon Theater of Mayfair. He runs indie label Raw Life Records, from where he released his solo project "The Greatest Rapper Never." He also signed prominent battle rapper Rone, who released an album under Raw Life Records titled "The First Story."

With the help of Sean Lassiter Photography, Jenkins' new presskit images will showcase his dynamic personality and passion for music, and help promote his upcoming projects.

Tips for Preparing for a Headshot Session with Sean Lassiter Photography https://seanlassiter.com/blog/2023/1/tips-for-preparing-for-a-headshot-session-with-sean-lassiter-photography

Preparing for a headshot session with Sean Lassiter Photography doesn't have to be overwhelming. By following these tips, you'll be well-prepared for your session and ready to create images that will help you make a great impression in your professional life.

  1. Plan your wardrobe: Choosing the right outfit is crucial for making a good impression in your headshot. You should aim for a classic, professional look that complements your features and personality. Avoid busy patterns or bright colors, as these can be distracting. Solid colors usually work well, as do neutral tones such as gray, navy, or black. Make sure your clothes are clean, pressed, and well-fitted. Also, consider the final use of the images, if it will be used for a professional LinkedIn profile or a acting headshot, it is important to bring a variety of options to choose from.

  2. Think about your hairstyle: You want your headshot to look natural and authentic, so it's best to wear your hair in a style that you're comfortable with and that represents you well. If you plan to change your hairstyle before your session, make sure to do it at least a few days before your session so that you're comfortable and confident with your new look.

  3. Consider makeup: Makeup can be a powerful tool for enhancing your features and bringing out your best self. It's a good idea to have your makeup professionally done for your headshot session, or to consult with a makeup artist beforehand.

  4. Accessories: Keep in mind that less is more. Simple earrings, a watch or a simple necklace can be a great addition, but try to avoid excessive jewelry, or big statement pieces.

  5. Arrival time: Make sure to arrive on time for your session. Being late can cause unnecessary stress and can make it difficult to get the best shots. Be sure to plan your route and give yourself plenty of time to get there. If you know you will be running late, please contact the photographer in advance.

  6. End use of the images: Think about how you plan to use the images after the session. Will they be for a professional LinkedIn profile, an acting portfolio, or personal branding? This will help you and the photographer to achieve the desired look and feel for the final images.

By following these tips, you'll be well-prepared for your headshot session with Sean Lassiter Photography and ready to make a great impression. Remember to be yourself, bring a positive attitude and trust your photographer.
