Harrison Funk On Iconic Moments Being A Celebrity Photographer

Creating magic is creating something with a unique style… something different, something that that that not too many people have ever seen photographed before. It’s creating something memorable and creating something that the audience can take away with them and remember the artist. Its magic is that thing that links the audience to the artist and the artist to their music.
