With a career of 12 years of Professional Experience, Andrew Elsayid is a staple in Oakland Bay Area's Music Scene. His Career began in 2006 in Upland, CA. Energy Center Studios; a warehouse that included 2 Professional Recording Studios, a Massive 35' x 35' White Infinity Wall, along with Editing Bays, Make-up Artist Studio and Dressing Room. This was the Nucleus and soil where he planted his seeds. Andrew, an Assistant to Adrian Ojerio's Multimedia Company RevolutionEYEZ media quickly picked up on Skills and Techniques in both Photography and Lighting while working as Key Grip for Major Productions. That Drive combined with Taking Initiative quickly earned him a Position as Director of Photography. As a D.P. he conducted photoshoots and/or Filmed Behind The Scenes with Southern Californias top models including Jillisa Lynn, Maya Michelle Rew, Justene and Dawn Jaro, Cali Logan, Miko Sinz (Miko. K), Lyla Dee, Ashley Peaches, Elvida Santos and over 300+ models. Since The Energy Center Housed 2 Recording Studios in a Prime Location it was a Go-To for Hip-Hop Artists. While Andrew Recorded his own music, he engineered Studio Sessions for Bizzy Bone (Bone Thugs & Harmony), The Dogg Pound, Bad Azz (Dogg Pound/LBC Crew), Suga Free, MC Eiht, RBX, 40 Glocc, Planet Asia, Xzibit and The Gravediggaz. Adrian Ojerio's Genius Idea of having a one stop Media shop where Artists can record an album, Film a Music Video, and have their Album Art designed in a single day, combined both sides of the Studio. A blessing for Andrew as he was able to work on Music Video Sets with all the Artists mentioned above as D.P., Assistant Director, Key Grip, A and B Camera Operator, and Lighting Engineer. Producing End Results that look like a 25 Person Production Crew with no more than 4 people on set. Maximizing efficiency while minimizing costs without jeapordizing any quality, would end up being the blueprint to Andrew's work ethic. On January 20th, 2012 Andrew relocated to Oakland's Bay Area to live closer to his Mother and Brother. With no studio to continue his Music Career a Dilemma was forced upon him. His brother Ash Elsayid, who encouraged his Music Career unknowingly inspired Andrew in April 2012 on a sunny day in San Francisco. Saddened that Andrew wouldn't be pursuing his Music Career any longer, Ash encouraged Andrew to do something that expresses his Creative Side. Thoughts immediatey brew in his head, all Nostalgic to his time at Energy Center Studios. It was an Epiphany. In total sincereness Andrew explains the skills he learned, combined with his effortless, yet Professional Networking Skills, Andrew Convinces his brother (who never picked up a camera before) to go half on a Canon 7D, promising his brother that they would acheive success within the year. Andrew quickly got his foot in the door of the industry in the bay area, providing Quality Visuals, taking initiative with great attention to detail. Andrew is currently the Resident Photographer for Motown on Mondays Oakland, main photographer and Visual (motion) Marketing Manager for Del The Funky Homosapien.
