PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE MONTH: MIKE SCHREIBER + TRUE HIP-HOP : photography & book release


NY-based photographer, MIKE SCHREIBER is releasing TRUE HIP-HOP, his much-anticipated collection of iconic photography documenting some of hip-hop's biggest legends. The book features a collection of hip-hop photos Mike has taken over the years (1998-2009), with accompanying behind-the-scenes stories about some of the photos. I've been a friend and a fan of Mike's work which extend beyond his more well-known photos of pop figures; some of my favorites are his photo essays from Cuba, Brasil and Jamaica. Mike has an amazing eye for capturing portraits and using natural light and shadow as if he was painting. I can't wait to get my own copy! The book drops on October 26th, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon. 

Check out this inspiring interview with him about being in the game and working it successfully. You can also find him on twitter and on facebook.
