Ask anyone who knows me what my favorite event of the year to shoot is and they will quickly say the Indianapolis 500.

Last month while in New Orleans covering the Super Bowl, I had the chance to shoot rapper Lil Wayne performing in a private concert at the GQ Party held at the Elms Mansion. Along with being a big Lil Wayne fan I love covering concerts as there is usually really cool light to work with.
