P-doe Luna, of Luna Empire is a powerhouse of positive urban energy among the heat and palm trees of Miami. I first met P-doe while working on a KRS ONE documentary and I was completely blown away both by his talent and as down to earth attitude. He has worked with KRS ONE, Fat Joe, Kool and the Gang and many others.
I was fortunate to link up with P-doe for a whirlwind day of photo shooting in Miami. The temperatures have been rising and with P-doe on the town it got real heated.
Our first stop was a Cuban Cafe downtown to stop off for a colada. For those of you who don’t know, colada is a shot in the arm in the form of super espresso and sugar. We sipped the coffee as P-doe called out to all the people that he knew in the neighborhood. It was a great start to the shooting.
After we got our caffeine on we headed to the Venetian building to take some shots waterside. It was such a blast working with P-doe. He just loved having a good time, and making some fantastic photographs in the process.
A good photo shoot is a collaboration between the photographer and the subject. Both need each other in order to create art. With my eye, and P-does larger than life personality we could do now wrong.
There were so many good images from today’s session I had to narrow it down to only one. I choose this one because it speaks to me both as representative of P-doe’s humbleness but his roots in the Miami community. I know that big things are in the future for P-doe and Luna Empire.
