If you’re partying, you better come correct because you never know what photographer is going to be there. Savannah, Georgia native, a photographer known as “Oh Snap Kid” has an artistic talent. HE travels from coast to coast snapping the livest events in your city…How wouldn’t want a career like that???
Name: some people call me Oh Snap, Snapper, oh snap kid, drunk monkey, guy with the camera, etc
Talent: Taking photos of drunk people and making my own rules in photography as an art.
Hometown: Savannah GA
Website: Oh Snap Kid
KrissyJ: Favorite color?
Oh Snap: Grey. It’s like never having to make a decision or choosing sides.
KrissyJ: Favorite restaurant?
Oh Snap: Krystal. Little food. Big mistake.
KrissyJ: Favorite place to shop?
Oh Snap: Walmart and a pack of white t-shirts. I never shop.
KrissyJ: What motivated you to get into the field of photography?
Oh Snap: I come from a family of artists and just want people to experience the experiences I have been through. Everyone tells me I should write a book about my stories, but I’m too lazy so I just take photos.
KrissyJ: How long have you been in this industry?
Oh Snap: Going under the “Oh Snap Kid Name,” I’ve been doing this for 2 years. June 4th is my anniversary for it!
KrissyJ: Who inspires you?
Oh Snap: I’m inspired by anyone who took nothing and made it something. The people that were told they couldn’t do it and made it happen. The people who made a dream without following the guidelines of everyone else.
KrissyJ: Is there a celebrity you would love to add to your portfolio?
Oh Snap: I’ve never been much for shooting celebrities. I’m happy with shooting the people in front of me. I was shooting an event one time and the guy freaked out and was like “Yo Puffy is here! Get over here and get this!” I was already set up across the room in a photobooth and had just opened a fresh beer, so I told him to just get him to come to me. HAHA. He never came but Cee Lo and Dallas Austin jumped in the booth and had a good time. I think Puffy missed out, not me. 😉
KrissyJ: Where do you see yourself in the next year?
Oh Snap: I’m hoping I can pick and choose my work more and travel out of the country. I’ve never been out of the states.
KrissyJ: How can we get our pictures taken with Oh Snap?
Oh Snap: Just have fun and don’t be shy! Come get me if you have to. There are so many people, I get bummed when I miss a good opportunity to take a pic of someone.
On a side note, if anyone is up in Chicago on June 26th be sure to check out my art show along with other artists from Atlanta and around the country!
