Singer J.Lauryn at FD Photo Studio
Our studio is prominent for accommodating not only fashion and e-commerce oriented projects but also art/music focused sessions. This time it was a pleasure to have a singer J. Lauryn in our stage B for a photoshoot to support her recently released EP “Vibes and Highs“.
Here is a transcript for the artist’s story:
J. Lauryn’s career first began when she moved from Hawaii to LA in 2007 to be a
professional dancer and choreographer. One of her most memorable moments was
dancing alongside Queen Latifah at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards, however it
wasn’t long before she wanted to step out from the shadows, steal the microphone
and take over the show. “I always had a strong passion for music and writing since I
was a kid,” J. says. “It was only a matter of time before I realized I needed to follow
my heart and focus on music”.
As well as starting to create on her own music J. has honed her phenomenal talents
by working on forthcoming tracks by RnB singer Ashanti, Roc Nation’s Vic Mensa and
K-pop superstar, CL. J reveals, “Vic would call me up to the studio and just say “go in
the booth and do your thang. CL was really fun to write with, we wrote a few really
vibey songs”. Last year she also provided guest vocals on fellow Cali band The
Johnsons’ reggae tinged track. ‘Kick It’.
Whether J’s working hard in the studio, chilling out with her dog Samson Dubie or
filming freestyles for her Instagram armed only with a ukulele her ambition remains
the same: “spread good vibes, good messages, and positivity”.
The crew of this session was quite small: only the photographer, the talent and her pup Samson. The PHOTOGRAPHER for the shoot was Connor Johnson. Check more of his work via INSTAGRAM. And the MODEL/ARTIST, J. Lauryn can be reached through various media platforms, such as INSTAGRAM, YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK and TWITTER.
If you aspire to shoot in a complete darkness and have a supreme control over lighting, Stage B is the space you would want to book. Featuring all black walls and ceiling, with capabilities to completely shut off the natural window light this space has become a favorite of our clients for both photo and video projects. As with our other studios Stage B comes equipped with black, gray, and white background paper, three strobe lights and numerous modifiers for your choice.
