DJ Steve Aoki hits up Oregon
My work as a photojournalist brings me into contact with a wide range of people, ranging from those just burned out of their homes to international celebrities. Steve Aoki, above signing an autograph, falls into the latter category.
A native of Southern California, Aoki is a savvy businessman, DJ and musician with a huge fan base. He recently stopped in the Portland metro area for an appearance at the Wilsonville headquarters of SOL Republic, a maker of high-end audio headphones, as well as a show at Portland’s Roseland Theater.
At SOL Republic, there was an elaborate party held for the occasion, as the firm showed off its Tracks line of headphones that now are sold by Apple, Best Buy and other prominent retailers. More interesting for my Nikon, however, were the photo opportunities offered by the colorful lighting and fashionable models, below.
