Yesterday I met with Taku Hirano in New York City for a portrait session. Taku is a Japanese percussionist and recording artist who worked with artists such as Dr. Dre, Lionel Richie, or Whitney Houston to name a few.
I know Taku for many years. Last time I saw him was with Cirque du Soleil on Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour in Germany. Back then I took some shots for my former employer, MEINL Percussion.
It was nice seeing him again. We met next to China Town, grabbed a coffee and took some shots in a side road as I wanted to include some urban vibes to the portraits.
