so, many times during the year i’m lucky enough to photography celebrities. it’s usually fun, crowded, and with exclusive access. today was a bit different. though it was a fun shoot…will.i.am was in and out realllllly quick, and there were many other photographers there. i always enjoy talking to fellow gear heads! though sometimes when it gets to be an insane amount of photographers the competition-meter goes through the roof, and many times they will get in your way. thankfully there was none of that today so all i can say is…close range rocks!
