Time for tea….Tiësto

The past two weeks I’ve been lucky to have had the chance to photograph Tiësto at Hakkasan Nightclub and Wet Republic Ultra pool numerous times! I’ve been listening to Tiësto’s music since highschool (“battleship grey”, and “in my memory” were some of my favorite tracks) and I’ve wanted to photograph him since I started shooting Dj’s & nightlife in general. 2011 he was at the MGM Grand Arena, and 2012 he had his year residency at XS Nightclub at the Wynn which were both off limits for me to shoot at the time. This year he’s with AMG properties so I finally have a chance to photograph him at Las Vegas’ newest Hakkasan Nightclub, and Wet Republic which are both located inside the MGM Grand. What’s even more awesome is that he’s a very humble person and has even complimented my photos on numerous occasions which makes photographing him even more of a joy.
In other news iHeartradio music festival returns Sept 20/21st this year and just announced their lineups for Friday and Saturday. Tiesto will be there Friday Sept.20th, other electronic music artists include Zedd and Benny Benassi on Saturday. I’m excited and hope iHeartRadio decides to hire me again this year. Maroon 5, Thirty-seconds to Mars and MUSE will be there also!! <3

EDC weekend 2013

This past week was the third annual Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Even though I didn’t attend the festival itself I still saw my favorite Dj’s in my favorite venues and got paid for all of it (the saying is true, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life!”). I started the week off on a Tuesday with Dash Berlin and later through the weekend got to see Armin Van Buuren and Kaskade at Marquee Day/Nightclub. I feel that EDC is pretty much every “BIG” weekend in Las Vegas. If you frequent this blog, you’ll notice a lot of the same Dj’s are here pretty much every BIG weekend, in that sense if you live in Las Vegas and love electronic music; you get spoiled, and most likely you saw your favorite dj once or twice for free! 😉 We just got word that EDC will be 2 weekends next year (like Coachella or Ultra), that’s going to mean next year will probably be BUSY from memorial day weekend through July 4th weekend!! I should probably plan a vacation in August 2014 pre-Labor-Day post EDC week 2! I’ve just confirmed I’ll be taking my annual trip back to Kauai the day after Labor Day Weekend ends in September. I can’t wait!!
