Friday I had my first opportunity to shoot rapper and songwriter, Trina . ..by myself. In the past, my boss captured key shots of the Diamond Princess, and I offered additional footage. But this time, I traveled solo.
The pressure was on and I sweated bullets the entire weekend! Because although celebs are ordinary people, there’s always a twist and their desire for perfection is on a higher level. When in public, every aspect of their life is subject to be scrutinized.
Sometimes people and media take small flaws and magnify them, almost like they forget celebs are human too and have feelings as well. But regardless, society’s perception often makes celebrities’ room for error very thin. So for people who travel or work with them, the conversation is pretty simple: do well and don’t screw* up.
Anyway, we began at Miami’s club Nocturnal, where Trina and protege Nisha performed. I must say, these ladies shut it down everywhere they go! Then we hit Club Play (that’s another post).
Trina has been in the industry longer than a decade and still has a phenomenal fan base. Guys, girls, men and women alike- all ages and different backgrounds love this chic! Witnessing her fans’ reaction upon meeting her was a unique experience. Guys tried to bombard their way into her VIP section and girls tagged along just to touch her hand or take a snapshot.
And then, when we were leaving, a group of guys were ecstatic to meet her. One kept saying how much he loves Trina and didn’t want her to leave. Then I realized that she’s always xcited to see and meet fans and pose for a few pix or hold a hand, even if it’s only for a few seconds. I think she’s loyal to fans and appreciates them as much as they love and adore her.
Overall, the experience was pretty cool. I’ve listened to Trina’s music for a while and I can’t think of one song that I’ve ever been tired of hearing.
Hopefully I did OK shooting the event and maybe she’ll be pleased with some of the pix. I’m thankful for the opportunity and I’ll always remember it;)

Look out for pix!
Just left the Moon in Tallahassee, Trina and protege’ Nisha shut the spot down.. in their Long Heels RED Bottoms! DJ Demp did his thing on the turntables. And now I’m kickin it outside of a nearby restaurant. .. Currently chillin in a vehicle w/the Diamond Princess & her crew.
Shooting the show was a task but weaving through the crowd was most challenging. The Moon was packed wall to wall.
Seeing the connection between Trina and her fans was pretty cool. I wonder how she feels, knowing she could stop in the middle of a song and have a crowd finish the rest. .. If she wasn’t hungry.. I’d ask. I know how I feel when I operate on an empty stomach so I’ll lay low for now. Posting from my cell so forgive me for my inability to #spellcheck .. I’m out. NLPGimages- ‘We’re everywhere you’re not’. .. I also met C.O. (the crowd pleaser) .. he’s kinda cute!

You saw it through NLPGimages’ eyes first.
NBA player Kenyon Martin has been Xposed. NLPGimages caught him chillin in the trailer with ex-girlfriend Trina, “Da Baddest Bitch”. Martin tattooed the diva’s lips on his neck when the couple dated years ago. Guess the duo has flames to rekindle. Looks like Trina is claiming her man back!
