In this episode, I sat down with Raul Soria Jr. to talk about the music photography scene in Hawaii. Is it really the paradise that I would have thought of? Beautiful beaches, pretty girls, and the cocktails?
Raul gives us an insight into his world living on a small island and why a lot of rockstars play in small clubs whereas they normally perform on the big stages everywhere else. He’ll talk about meeting Kirk Hammett all the time and how the community of music photographers and promoters work together to keep the local music scene alive.
