You can check out a great interview with Little Shao on DancersGlobal.com.
Let’s share some great photos of Shao and Hip Hop Photography (WILLIAM K)
“How did you get started in Hip-Hop Photography?
I started when I got serious about photography. As I was living as a Bboy, thinking as a Bboy, eating as Bboy, sleeping as a Bboy, and breathing as a Bboy it was my world, so working in Hip-Hop Photography was obvious. I was into Hip-Hop before thinking about doing photography even if though I really liked it. To tell you the story about why I really started doing photography is all because of dance. I couldn’t find the right photography, which could capture my dance movement properly, so I told myself that I would learn to do it. I can’t find someone who can take a picture of me dancing as I want and I can’t take a picture of myself, ahaha!”
