Wow. What a week. Hands down, one of the greatest work weeks of my life. The Red Bull Thre3style World Finals were being held in Vancouver, Canada and luckily for me I was hired to shoot the job along side the super talented David Lang and Kris Krug! If by some chance you haven't heard of Red Bull The3style yet, I'll try my best to break it down for you. Basically it is a global DJ competition to find out who is the best party rocker in the world. Who can get people on any given dance floor, to go the most crazy. And that my friends is no mean feat. To determine who is the best in business, DJ's have to compete locally, nationally and then finally internationally to be eventually crowned king. Over the course of the World Finals Week, DJ's representing their respective countries competed each night so the judges could decide who was good enough to go on to the Grand Final. Throughout the days Red Bull had lined up an epic assortment of activities to keep everyone entertained and provide an outlet from the stress of the competition. I got to follow the international crew of incredibly talented DJ's around Vancouver and documented for what many of them was the biggest week of their lives.
The Grand Final was to be held at the famous Commodore Ballroom, it was decked out to the nines and was clearly ready to rock Van City. As was the goal from the beginning of the competition, there could only be one winner. And in the end it was local boy DJ Hedspin from Canada who stood above the rest to claim the top prize in 2011. Bigups to all the DJ's involved, I had a rad time getting to know you over the course of that insane week! You all, truly, do, rock! I just hope you have as much fun enjoying the pictures as I had taking them :) To all the Red Bull crew, you guys are unreal! I had the best time working with ya's, we should really do it again sometime! PEACE
