Music Issue 2010: Atlanta photographers shoot Atlanta musicians 

Alfamega, 2009 We took this particular shot in front of the Hilliard Street Hotel, aka Pink City, for Alfamega’s album cover. Pink City wasn’t shut down yet, but at the time, it had to be one of the rawest areas in Atlanta. Drug dealing, pimps, you name it. Some of the people in the area threatened to shoot me and take my gear, but Alfamega calmed them down and I made it out alive. The lady next to Alfamega in this shot is actually his mother, who he rented an apartment for in the area, and it was a big deal for him to get her in a shot. I did two snaps and she was done, but this is definitely one of my favorite moments behind the camera. — Zach Wolfe
