It’s been a while since we last spoke. How are you doing?
I'm doing well, still traveling a lot, working on so many different and various project but having mad fun doing it...
We can attest to this. Just follow Little Shao's Instagram and you can travel the world with him!
Let’s go back to Chicago for a second. How was it seeing your photo on the lightboxes as part of the Top 55?
It was awesome! Just when I think about these 3 days where we were all together there in Chicago, sharing this amazing experience in this amazing city...that brings me some serious goosebumps. That feeling when you get picked out of 40000 pictures is really dope, especially being there with some of the best photographers in the world, just having fun..
You guys did amazing! The whole organization and all of the activities were on point...One of the best experiences of my life as a photographer...Even better than having your own exhibition actually!!
What have you been working on since the Winner Award Ceremony in Chicago?
I've been doing lots of advertising campaigns for sports brands, been traveling to lots of worlwide dance events, music events, following artists on a tour, lifestyle and fashion photoshoots for sports brands, fashion shows, portraits etc...I'm keeping busy!
Has Red Bull Illume changed your perspective on photography in any way? Has anything changed?
Yes... getting closer to the nature...
Check out some of the shots below and you'll see what he means!
Already planning anything for the next edition of Red Bull Illume?
I'm still thinking of it, but for sure I will dedicate some time for it. I really wanna be part of it again, lol. If I don't, I will quit photography ahahah.
Any tips for aspiring photographers?
Just keep trying to be creative, keep pushing the limits of what has been done before and you might come up with something that actually hasn't been done before.
Will we see you again for the next Red Bull Illume?
