WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Backseat Freestyle

2 Jan

1) I’ve noticed I’ve been listening to a lot more rap lately; I think my job is infiltrating my mind.

2) Backseat Freestyle, off of my one of my favorite albums of 2012, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, is a cool video, black & white, some story line, some mirroring video effects, nothing crazy.  I doubt it is really THE Sherane, but Kendrick’s face when we get to see the infamous ‘Sherane,’ is priceless!

3) More fashion and diverse music selections coming soon… just moving by my day-to-day inspirations.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jado Images

31 Dec


Wow 2012 is coming to an end!  I have to admit it wasn’t a particularly great year for me, so much change and not enough sleep.  There were a couple highlights though, one of them being, reaching my goal of getting a lot more photography work; this will transition into the launch of JADO Studios in 2013, but more of that come. 

I wanted to leave you all with an excerpt from a feature that the website template site Wix.com did on me.  They featured a couple of their users early this year, to discuss their work and how and why they use Wix. I’m not sure what ever happened with the featured user project, but here’s a sneak peek in what I had to say about JADO Images, marketing, and dating in January or February of 2012.

Happy New Year and look out for an updated JADO Images site in 2013!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Wicked Games

19 Oct

Since winter I’ve been obsessed with The Weeknd’s music!  My favorite of his 2011 efforts (he had 3 mixtapes in 2011) was House of Balloons, so I was happy to see he just dropped a video for the sexy single Wicked Games, from that album! Check out the video above, I like how it was shot, the scene transitions are stellar, they already gave me ideas for an upcoming shoot.  Also I’ve been shooting a lot of black and white videos lately, so I’m particularly feeling it for that reason.  Lastly if you’ve checked out any of the single art, the video keeps with the aesthetic that The Weeknd has put out there from the beginning.  I’ve posted it before, and I’ll say it again….I LOVE those pics!

Make sure to look out for The Weeknd’s upcoming debut album Trilogy in the next couple weeks.

I do have a question though, if I own all 3 mixtapes and the new album only has 3 new songs, and the rest are from the mixtapes…do I got to buy the album? lol

I will, I will…he’s that good.  His music is sexy! The Weeknd is necessary in the current R&B scene.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: MDMA

5 Oct



If you follow me on twitter (JaiNima), you may remember earlier this week I instagramed and tweeted a picture of me and the artist, Jamel Castro, beat after wrapping up his video shoot.  I shot the majority of the video, serving as Director of Photography for his promo video.  It’s was my 1st stint at the music video thing, and although it was kind of stressful because Jamel Castro is a film director in his own right, it was lots of fun and I look forward to doing more.

Check out the promo video from Castro’s upcoming project MDMA, coming out November 1st.
