Here at HypeFresh Magazine, we like to showcase beautiful and amazing work by photographers all over the world. Today is a special feature because this photographer has officially joined the HypeFresh Magazine family! His name is Abe Coloma and he is a photographer who shoots rappers out of the bay area!
Check out his work and commentary below!
Travis Scott: Taken during the Rodeo Tour stop in SF. Travis is currently my favorite artist out at the moment. Nobody brings the “turn up” like Travis does. Each show is filled with water slinging and mosh pits. Never a dull moment with this guy.
Abe: “The Weeknd: Taken during the King of the Fall tour in SF. This photo made its rounds all over social media as soon as I posted it. Even Abel posted it on his IG. I didn’t get credit for taking the photo unfortunately, but hey, I’m glad everyone liked it.”
Abe: “Kendrick Lamar: Taken at The Outside Lands Music Festival. This was one of the most memorable shooting experiences I’ve been a part of. I briefly met Kendrick before he stepped on stage to headline the festival with over 55,000 people in attendance. The energy was ridiculous.”
Abe: “Joey Bada$$: This photo was taken during Joey’s World Domination Tour stop in SF. It was dope seeing such a young crowd in the audience supporting true school Hip Hop. Definitely a breath of fresh air these days.”
Abe:”Jay Z: Taken during the Magna Carter World tour in San Jose, Ca. I remember having to shoot this show on a work day. I was given comp tickets but unfortunately I had to shoot a few songs and leave early. The show was sold out and I gave my tickets to two lucky fans waiting outside for free.”
Abe: “J. Cole: I’ve shot J. Cole a few times but the Forest Hills Drive Tour was a special one. His maturity as an artist shined bright this night. He effortlessly commanded the crowd that night, without a crew or hype man. A true performer.”
Drake: “Taken during the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour at Shoreline Amphitheater. Interesting fact: Drake featured a few of my photos on his IG and Twitter accounts. I just never got the credit for them. Haha”
Abe: “D’Angelo: Taken at The Outside Lands Music Festival in SF. It’s been 14 years since his last album but D hasn’t lost a step. Backed by his band The Vanguard, they provided the fans with a masterful performance of old and new tunes.”
