Three years ago today was the second day of a weekend long experience that has been one of the best experiences in my life. May 18-20, 2012 I was covering the Billboard Music Awards in official capacity. During that time, I was trying to sell the pictures that I took to publications that I have never put them up on here. Here are the pictures from the first event, Battle of the Bands.
Two years ago, I was lucky to experience being a member of the press inside the BBMA 2012 press room. It was an amazing experience that I sticks with me to this day and I knew then like I know now that it will not be the last time that I get the opportunity to cover the Billboard Music Awards. Above are pictures of Natasha Bedingfield, Patent Pending, Gavin Degraw, Carly Rae Jepsen, LMFAO, Eric Benet and Stevie Wonder. These are just a few of the pictures that I took over that weekend of BBMA festivities.
The Billboard Music Awards is the focus of part 2 of my 2012 picture retrospect. This whole experience has been a turning point for me in terms that it made me more sure than ever that I was pursuing the right path in my professional life. Attending the press room of the Billboard Music Awards 2012 set the foundation for my strong interest in becoming a photojournalist.
Here are the pics that I took yesterday in the BBMA press room. Unfortunately, not all of the celebrities came back to the press room. I know there are a lot that were hoping I would get a picture of Justin Bieber but he was one of the celebs that did grace us (the press) with his presence. The celebrities that I did get pictures of, in the order the pictures are, are Wiz Khalifa, Robin Thicke, Far East Movement, Jason Derulo, Carly Rae Jepsen, LMAFO, Eric Benet, and Stevie Wonder.
