One of the coolest assignments of 2018 was when PayPal commissioned me to photograph smaller business merchant Bee Raw. The owner is a middle man for high end honey makers to sell through his brand but he likes to keep a few personal hives on this rooftop in Brooklyn.
At first I was going to stick back to shoot the bees but he walked up with another bee suit so I could get right in the action. Let me tell you, bees start to dive bomb you when you’re getting this close to the hive. I was shooting and bees were all over the camera, my hood, and sometimes even the lens.
The Bee Raw team was amazing to work with and were open to some amazing photographs. Here are my favorite from the shoot.
