KirillWasHere Wins PaperMag’s Best Nightlife Photographer Award!
Congrats to our favorite nightlife photographer Kirill Bichutsky of KirillWasHere for winning PaperMag‘s 2011 Best Nightlife Photographer Award! Considered our next of kin at FashionIndie, it hasn’t been long since our days of sneaking into parties together (via the DJ) so we could booze for free and he could snap our friends in their most candid moments. My how things have changed! Now he’s being flown VIP around the world to shoot the biggest celebs, coolest kids, and hottest ladies that pass his lens. Who says you can’t make money off of having fun and doing what you love? We couldn’t be happier for our boozey little Russian, and hope for much bigger things to come. Here’s a gallery of our favorite moments of 2011 (sans boobies so it is safe for work, for the NSFW goods, visit his site!).
