I always love getting asked to shoot events that showcase the local Artists. Coming from a background of a few locally famous artists, and having born a few budding artists of my own I try to encourage and cultivate the Arts whenever I can.
I was asked to shoot for Raw
“RAW showcases indie talent in visual art, film, fashion design, music, performance art, hair and makeup artistry, and photography.
RAW is a fun and alternative way for artists to showcase both to their local community and the world-at-large.
We are not your average art show. We are loud, colorful, creative, and all about our artists. We are RAW.”
RAW currently operates in over 60 cities across the United States, Australia, Canada and the UK!
It was a night of mind blowing exploration for all. There was jewellery, oil paintings, water colors, clothing designers, singers, poets, and bands. The vibe was very chill as I was able to walk around and mingle with the very friendly crowd. Everyone was in high spirits when the live entertainment started. We were given a taste of local rap artists, vocalist, and something for the heavier music crowd. One performer wore a plastic bottle on her head to tell the tale of pollution and plastics in a tight glittery onesie.
I must admit my most favourite pieces were the geodes. I so want to learn that technique one day.
