If there's any photographer you've seen at concerts in NYC over the past few years (primarily hip hop), it's most likely been Brook Bobbins building up his portfolio and shooting for friends and famous artists alike. The Bronx bred photographer has a knack for connecting with artists and capturing special moments. Although he's most known for the moments he captures on stage, his special relationship with many musicians allows him to freeze moments in time off the stage as well and share it with excited fans online. His website, who-shot-ya, has a plethora of photo galleries from 2010 until now. It might only be a few years, but the amount of shows and amazing shots he's got is more than many others get in their lifetime.
A few months ago I linked up with Brook in back of the store Community 54 in L.E.S. to discuss everything from his start, the musicians and events he's liked shooting the most, and more regarding his story. Press play above to watch and stay tuned for part two. Enjoy!
