Photo Spotlight feat. Xem VanAdams

Deonte` K Photographs Xem VanAdams "A Shooting Star XCLusive"


Last weekend I had the pleasure of Photographing my very good friend Mr. Xem VanAdams in a Baltimore City Garage. For those of you who do not know who he is by now let me introduce him to you. He's 1st, a really cool guy. I got to meat him last year through my good friend Darrick. Once we met we realized we had so much in common that we just instantly clicked, and has been cool every since. Our conversations are amazing. We may not always agree on everything, but our debates are what makes our talks so interesting lol. He's a great guy to know, and a good friend to have. He's also been Conquering The WORLD, One WORD At A Time with his youtube videos @ www.youtube.com/XemVanAdams. Viewed by thousands of people. Especially in the young gay black community. He has touched so many, and talked about things most people would hide, or even take to their graves. I'm so very proud of him, and his accomplishments. And it doesn't stop there. He's also a inspiring film writer, journalist, and believe it or not Photographer (Just like ME!!! Big smiles lol). The list goes on, and on. So for more info on Xem, check out his website XemVanAdams.com. But until then I present to you his 1st photo shoot with the one, and only ME!!!!! LMAO!!!! ;)

































































Well there you go folks. Earlier this year I said I wanted more people to shoot (at least 20) and I'm already on my 3 person, with more to come. I love doing this lol. So anyway, see yourself in front of my camera? Hit me up, and you can be featured here as well. Until then, check out my last photo shoot with my good friend Darrick here.



In closing. I leave you all with one of Xem's famous quotes 'Life Without Photographs are Moments that Never Happened'... Xem VanAdams.... thanks 4 the shoot buddy!!!!

by the way XEM.... When is my shoot????? & When are you adding me to your "My Adams" photo album on Myspace huh??? LOL ;)

Have A Great Weekend Everyone!!!!

Great shoot man. I see in your work you are getting better and better with this photography thing.

I bet Shooting Xem was a lot of fun. I bet ya'll did more laughing than posing.

This was a great project. Great model in front of the camera and photographer behind the camera.
