Gunner Stahl: The Photographer Who Captures Hip-Hop's Personal Moments

Private moments of A$AP Mob, Ian Connor, The Weeknd and Young Thug, amongst others.

Atlanta-based photographer Gunner Stahl isn’t your everyday front-of-stage snapper. Real name Jonathan Simmons, Gunner has been shooting rappers since 2010 and has since then built not only an impressive portfolio of candid, intimate shots, but also a relationship of trust with hip-hop’s elite that allows him the access that escapes so many others.

Check out the selection of shots above and head here for more from Gunner Stahl.
