Matthew Samuels (Boi-1da), photographed for Billboard Magazine. Boi-1da has produced songs such as “Best I Ever Had”, “Forever”, “Miss Me”, and “Headlines” by Drake, “Not Afraid” by Eminem just to name a few.
In 2006 I photographed The International Noise Conspiracy at The Reverb and ended up with this photograph. About a month after that the harddrive I had the photos stored on crashed and I lost a 3 month chunk of my work because I had been too lazy to back them up properly at the time. I still think about this particular image from time to time and wish I had a high resolution copy.
Always back up your photos, then make a copy of that backup.
