What does Tyrell Hampton think about his work?
When asked about his work, he told BuzzFeed that he rarely accepts party photography as a job. But, he told,” if I do it too often for money and see it as a job, my brain would not be able to take it seriously.”
He said, “ There’s a WhatsApp group chat, and it’s like being tugged in different directions like, “we need a photo of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez right now.”
Tyrell is good at taking candid pictures and party photos of celebrities. During an interview, he told Vogue, ” My philosophy behind taking candid pictures came from my obsession with moving images. Growing up, I was looking at so much imagery that when I went to college, I thought perhaps I could move on to photography and see where it led me.”

Tyrell said, ” Because my subjects are so familiar to me, I know their next move, what makes them smile, giggle, and what music gets them going, so the images I take are unique moments that surprise or intrigue me — such as people screaming, smiling or lighting a cigarette.”
