While at the Carlos Campos store opening, I filmed one of NYC’s most liked paparazzi. Unlike most paparazzi, Mr. Nunez is well respected and loved. The one person who has captured hip-hop celebs at their best with full access to their lives is photographer Johnny Nunez. His story is much like the rags to riches tales of the stars he captures on film. Nunez, 36, who is chinese and black was adopted by a Puerto Rican family, got started as a photographer by not wanting to work at soup kitchens for the rest of his life and asking God to give him one good idea that would help him succeed.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
