My favorite celebrity photographer, Derek Blanks unveiled his new and improved website last weekend during an event hosted by NeNe Leakes of the Atlanta Housewives. The event was held at 595 North Friday evening and the walls were ablaze with Derek’s masterpieces. From Jennifer Hudson to Monica…From Akon to Usher and from T.I. to David Banner. Derek has shot them all.
I managed to arrive LATE and without my memory card in my camera! The life of a blogger… *sigh* but I love Derek so much that I prepared a lil montage video from the event in his honor. Check it out below:
Shouts out to Derek’s assistant, Robert Ector and make-up artist Toni Acey!
Derek’s photography is nothing less than spectacular and he’s well known for turning images into art. I’m still saving my pennies for my Alter Ego photoshoot (and currently taking donations!) but you can hit up Derek at his new site, DBlanks.com to view his work and/or to contact him for your next shoot.
