“I wanna shout out Cam Kirk and Gunner Stahl. They're my people, the photographers bring out a whole different element in hip-hop. It lets you see deeper into the artist's life."
-Slim Jxmmi, Rae Sremmurd

"We love artists,they give us the inspiration, because we're all the same. It's just different fields.”

“The photographer, in this day and age in music, is honestly almost equivalent to a DJ. Nowadays, music is being consumed visually and audibly. There are people who have favorite rappers because they love the way they look, the image, the style, the vision. That's something that me as a photographer feeds to the public, the same way you have people that love the artist's music and the DJ is the one that feeds that to the public.” 

-Cam Kirk, whose shot and directed photo shoots and music videos with Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Rae Sremmurd and more.


“Photographers are the new rock stars in the sense that it's like, the artist is only as big as the photos or the visuals. Some people will take photos just for the sake of it, but I want [to be like] Chi Modu, Jonathan Mannion, what they did in their time. In 20 years, I want kids to look at my photos and be like 'Oh, from 2013 to 2050, this is what the culture looked like."

- Places + Faces, Ceisay
