...is We Were wReady for Live From... Episode 2!
(That's right: "Ready" starts with a "w" for this blog. Call it a typo if it makes you feel better. I wanted to keep the w-w-w rhythm for this ONLINE web log, or "blog." Just go with it!)
Live From... The Talk Show was off and running. With Episode 1 behind us, we worked to ensure that Episode 2 would be better. Well, that is to say that we were determined to deliver another great show... with far less showtime stress!
Mission accomplished! We even mellowed out our show theme music to reflect our smoother delivery. Episode 2 went down like spicy ranch dressing; smooth...with flavor...and a kick! Our lovely hostess, Gem Avery, welcomed photographer CHESTER "BIG CREED" COLSTON and lyrical musician THED WELLER.

I must admit I've been so busy I slept on this one. Crazy I got a chance to kick it with Nito earlier this month and he didn't even mention this. Lol. Classic Nito though, he doesn't say much, just let the work and the accolades speak volumes.
Cognito was chosen as one of Complex Magazines 50 Greatest Music Photographers Right Now. Here's what they had to say about the "Culture Capture Champ:"
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Cognito goes by many names, as a result of his many artistic lanes, all of which are under the FROLAB umbrella. As Cognito, he's Mos Def's official concert photographer, but has also photographed artists like The Roots, Erykah Badu, and Talib Kweli. In 2010, Cognito had a groundbreaking show at HVW8 gallery in LA, showing the incredible moments he captured of Mos Def on and offstage during his Ecstatic tour. He's a true hip-hop documentarian and continues to amaze us with his breadth of work.
SALUTE TO COGNITO...WISH THE BIG HOMIE NOTHING BUT MORE EXPOSURE, MORE SUCCESS, AND MORE FROTOS.

Not sure how much time is will take, 2 days if you are lightning fast (300 shots/day or about 1 shot every 30 seconds); then maybe 1 day to name all the pics.
