NYE With DJ Action @ The Living Room

Not long ago I was able to secure a really fun, creative collaboration with a model, and overall badass, named Amber in Denver (@amber.helen on IG).  After our shoot she was gracious enough to ask me to participate in a group shoot with some of her creative team at IKEA in Centennial.  It was a fun creative exercise and we got some cool work done.  Of course management at IKEA eventually asked us to leave :) but we were able to still work with some really nice light in the parking lot before we called it a day.  Some shots from that day...

Part of the creative team that day was DJ Action (@djaction_jackson on IG) who is a radio personality and club DJ in Denver.  We didn't get to work much that day at IKEA but I liked what we did and I had some creative ideas in mind for him if we were ever able to work together again.  We kicked around a few ideas but couldn't set something up for a while (weather killed a shoot one day), but eventually worked something out.  

DJ Action was cool enough to invite me to shoot his NYE set at a club called The Living Room in Denver.  I got to the spot a little early and had a few beers and scoped out the lighting.  I was excited to play with my on-camera flash set up that night (all gear used will be linked to Amazon below).  After a shot of Hennessy with DJ Action, he got busy doing his thing, and I started working the room getting some shots.  It was a fun night, and the staff was super cool and accommodating, and the crowd was fun.  Some shots from that night...

It was a fun night.  Clearly as the drinks kept flowing and midnight approached people opened up more for the camera, but what I learned about myself is that documenting live events is something I can definitely see myself doing in the future.  Hopefully more gigs such as this come up soon.
