It's such a strange thing -- being an event photographer AND an awkward misanthrope. But ever since I've started shooting parties I've realized that I'm not so unsociable. I LOVE people. I LOVE when people have fun, and when they dress up, and when they get drunk and dance. I started shooting for a new photo agency that sends me to really bad events. But I think I like shooting bad events more than shooting events with cool downtown people only because they don't act so jaded around a camera, and in fact, these people are really keen on really savoring the spotlight and doing silly, funny things. I'm now using this opportunity to start a new series about Bad Party Photos where the DJ plays Cobra Starship and white girls wear Intermix bandage dresses and dudes hover uncomfortably close to partners' sticky lips. Check some out my golden collection so far.
