Portrait Of The Week Series - No.15: Just Blaze

Last week I visited Stadium Red Studios in East Harlem, NY, to shoot DJ and producer Just Blaze (Justin Smith). As part of a team from Serato, I spent time with Just Blaze and photographed him in various locations around the studio for a future Serato Icon piece.

This photo was set at his favourite recording desk (Jay-Z's The Blueprint, The Blueprint 2 and The Black Album plus Eminem's Recovery) and was lit with a gelled speed light in a diffused beauty dish balanced with the ambient.
