#Throwbacking: Summer Jam ’13

Today, Hot 97 decided to release it’s first line up for this year’s Summer Jam. Flash backs to a few years ago instantly popped into my head. The time is 2013. My first ever NY Summer Jam ever. I’ve always heard and read stories about how crazy Summer Jam can be. I wasn’t just an attendee for the days festivities. Because of my mentor, Nunez, I had an All Access pass, to the whole stadium.

My photo responsibilities that day included getting BTS photos of the Vevo room where majority of the days artist would stop by to do short interviews. Though I missed the actual performances live in person (we had a flat screen set up in the back of the room), I’m sure any fan would of traded places with me in an heart beat. Almost every artist on the roster stopped by. So many are still some of my favorite artist including Miguel, J. Cole, the A$AP Crew (RIP Yamz), Joe Budden, Wale, TDE (Kendrick Lamar, SchoolBoy Q, Jay Rock, Ab Soul, Wu Tang, Lil Kim, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Ross, and many many more… What a day!!

The ones who didn’t stop by Vevo, I was able to catch a glimpse and photo outside the room through the hallways (Remember I had an AA Pass)

#PapooseTakeover

By danieljvasquez

Beautiful moments in life inspire me. That surreal moment taking place within my reality. Reading about other photographers, i came across a very similar thought from Mario Moreno.

“Inspiration is everywhere around us and wherever you look you will see an image worth capturing. Photography is a wonderful way of sharing your feelings and experiences with people and this is what I like about photography. I pursue the ‘Perfect Moment’, capture it and share it. This is my goal.”

I feel a certain emotion with every photograph I capture. A sense of WOW, “this is really amazing and I am glad to be apart of this.” From music concerts, events, to some of fashion’s biggest shows. I am happy to share my point of view with the world.

Starting out carrying a camera just to capture day to day moments in my life. My photography transpired by the more my life evolved. Photography is not a job for me but a pictorial of my life story.

As my career and life continue to grow, I hope you enjoy my adventure!
