MUA FACES BY E'TOSH | Columbia, South Carolina

Last weekend I had a photo shoot in Wilmington North Carolina, which was cancelled due to the weather.  So since my photo shoot plans were cancelled my wife and I decided to head down to Columbia, South Carolina for a weekend get away.  Since I had my gear in the back of the car, while en route we planned a quick photo shoot with MUA E'toshia owner/operator of Faces by ETOSH; E'Toshia reached out to Monica Conyers, who said yes and just like that we got a photo shoot together at the last minute.

E'toshia did a wonderful job with Monica's MUA and accommodated us at her home for the photo shoot.  While E'toshia was doing her thing I scoped out a few locations for the photo shoot and based on where the light was falling I decided to do the photo shoot in front of her garage door.  Crazy right, but the light was just right and I let the natural lighting dictate where I would shoot and I didn't care about the background.  However, to add some interest I asked E'Toshia if I could use a painting that was on her wall as the back drop and I think that addition came together pretty well.

I did record some BTS video but I left my BTS camera with the footage in Columbia and I am still trying to figure out if I should drive to pick it up or have it delivered.

Thank you Duane Herbert for the assistance with the shoot.  Also, thank you to my wife for assisting with the BTS video, although I forgot it.  Lastly, thank you E'Toshia and Monica for coming together at the last minute to pull this shoot off.

BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO

DJ Kold Fuzion | south carolina photographer

I was extremely pleased and honored when Duane Herbert aka DJ Kold Fuzion contacted me to create portraits for his Vyzion Radio profile.  Duane was recently provided with a platform to showcase his talents by Vyzion Radio an online radio station headquartered in Lincolnton, NC with locations in New York, Philadelphia and California.

Duane Herbert demonstrated an early interest in music and together with five friends formed JAM Promotions and held parties in his native Trinidad & Tobago.

Duane moved to Brooklyn, NY and soon after joined the US Military; while enlisted, he dj'd in the Republic of South Korea.  DJ'ing was a natural extension for Duane having been heavily influenced and surrounded by music in his family; his father DJ Buff, a well liked Brooklyn Chef and DJ; Duane’s brother, Reggae artiste Honor Rebel Jah Humbly, also hails from Brooklyn, NY.

Duane's professional moniker, Kold Fuzion succinctly implies: a fusion and versatility with all genres of music, blending a myriad of sounds on his playlists to create the ultimate party experience; he displays a tenacity for all things musical and utilizes his Caribbean heritage as a foundation and his musical passion as a catalyst, to bring good vibes to his sets.  Having attended one of his sets, I observed the manner in which he engages his audience and his ability to gauge and elicit a positive listener  response, in other words, he gets the crowd going and keeps them moving.

Currently located in Columbia, SC, this musical maven is positioned to become an entertainment behemoth with brand recognition.  Realizing that disc jockeying no longer entails just the one's and two's, but has morphed to include the latest technological advancements; Kold Fuzion maintains current dj'ing technology while continuing to hone and augment his skills as an entertainer; he is a consummate professional as is evidenced by the relationships he has built and maintains in and around the Columbia area.
