This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we welcome Atlanta-based photographer/director/marketer/visionary Cam Kirk to the Upper West Side! Cam talks growing up in Maryland, how his divorced parents parented differently, how seriously he took religion in eighth grade, his love for R&B, how quiet he was in high school, how he expected to attend a PWI but ultimately found himself at Morehouse, his beginnings in pre-med, why he switched to marketing, how he booked Wiz Khalifa to perform in Atlanta, why that - and not his father's photography business - led him to buy a camera and start taking pictures, what it was like to work with Young Scooter, the details behind the infamous Gucci Mane boxing photograph, meeting Metro Boomin, learning how to be a fly on the wall in the recording studio, thinking of images with a marketing mind rather than s strictly artistic one, pitching Lil Yachty for a billboard, the reasons behind opening up his own photography studio in Atlanta, why he won't photograph his own parents, his appreciation for Ravie B, Gunner Stahl, Renell Medrano, and much, much more!
