Meet Celebrity Phenomenal Photographer Justin Kase Taking his business NEXT Level!

Published

Justin Kase

Justin Kase is a leading figure in media, frequenting both the radio and stepping behind the lens of a camera. He has made a name for himself as a prominent photographer, capturing the smiles and style of various celebrities. Groups such as Nappy Roots and entertainers such as Trey Chaney, and a number of red carpets have been privileged enough to have Kase snapping moments away. He has since focused on his profession and worked on his skill to provide quality content to his clientele. Kase has created a career that he loves and hopes to expand on in the future.

Unbeknownst to many, Justin Kase began his career in media as a radio host! He started as a ballboy for the Atlanta Hawks, but his friends DJ Doc and Ryan Cameron would let him sit in on their sessions on Hot 97.5. His fondest memory comes from the time he spent the afternoon with 112 on the set of their iconic video “Peaches and Cream”. Kase enrolled in Connecticut School of Broadcasting and worked his way into a famed career at Hot 98.1. He thanks Tone Hollywood and Marion Supreme for molding his radio skills. During the pandemic, he bought a camera and shifted his focus from the radio to photography. Tray Chaney served as his main motivation after displaying how hard he works. He considers the mogul to be a treasured friend to this day.

A unique trait, Kase doesn’t have a dream subject he would like to shoot because he wants to experience everything life has to offer him. Kase has retrained on showing favoritism to any of his subjects, as he finds beauty behind every shoot he does. He believes that photography is about telling a story and sees the value all stories have contributed to his own. Part of his story would include the darker undertone, where adderall and cocaine controlled his every thought. With the strength of Dr. Raham, Bill Colombo, and Harold Mayes at his former rehab, he was able to kick the addictions and focused on becoming the man he is today.

“Today is the tomorrow that you were so worried about yesterday!” – Justin Kase

Now with boundaries he put in place, he has eliminated strip clubs, bars, and small clubs from his repertoire. He is often asked if he will eventually return to the radio, but he is happy with the career he has chosen. As a special thanks, he shows gratitude to two of his loyal supporters, his best friend Jaii and his other friend, Alex. His mother, father, Jule, and Koni have also remained supportive of the star. Coming soon, Justin has a project with his “sis” Perfection Unique that he is very excited about dropping. Stay updated and in the know by following him on social media via every platform!

Gucci Gordy

Q. Who is Gucci Gordy? Gucci Gordy is the mmelinum version of Barry Gordy of Motwn.

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment. It does because labels lose a lot of money because they spend money frivolously and if an artist don’t recoup their money, they get dropped.

Q. How important is seeing a band play live in deciding whether to sign them? Important because you get to see the full package from their stage presence, crowd interaction, and crowd likability.

Q. How do A&R’s search for new talent these days? Word of mouth and research on all social media platforms.

Q. How do you stay organized in such a vast industry? Repeating the same protocol, creating a curriculum and staying consistent by creating a regime and sticking to the process.

Q. What was the most recent signing that you were a part of? I signed Leeky G Bando, artist based out of New York, Chris Echols, and Destineeee Lynn.

Q. Where can the world follow you? @guccigordy
