(6/1/16) - On this day, we headed to Malibu to shoot a music video for a new artist that I recently signed. I met with photographer Ola Bakare (http://instagram.com/obkre) and he was also planning to take some photos of Nizhoni Cooley (http://instagram.com/nizhonicooley), on this day. Nizhoni is a well known YouTube personality and social media influencer. Months after shooting this, Nizhoni also starred in Kevin Gates "Time For That" music video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gztnxq2lUo8). We moved as quickly as we could because the water level were starting to rise on the beach. We had fun and the shoot turned out well. Check out some of the behind the scenes footage from the music video.
