DJ Nicar is a DJ and music producer who works and lives in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia metro region) and puts out amazing work. Nicar is currently the co-executive producer of the #DMVRising project by DJ Chris Styles of WPGC 95.5 FM and 94.7 Fresh FM. Not only is he a cool dude and a great talent, he’s fluent in American Sign Language – not something you’d expect with a DJ!
Nicar contacted me and let me know that he needed a photographer to do some promo photos with. We discussed the look and feel that we wanted and came up with a game plan. We opted out of club-style photography for this shoot as I will be covering him at Shamrockfest 2016 and a number of other events. The first set would be more neutral and professional, with a second set done on location with his at-home studio equipment. These would be more laid-back pieces that focused more on his personality and professionalism that would fit well in different press outlets.
