My Prime Time Debut on X Factor
by BRIAN SMITH on NOVEMBER 18, 2011

This is beyond surreal…Much L-O-V-E to everyone at X Factor and Sony for my prime-time debut photographing celebrity portraits of the X Factor Finalists with SONY NEX-5N then passing the cameras out to all the contestants so they could see how easy it was to get great professional results with a camera small enough they can take it with them everywhere.

To all the finalists for welcoming me to their show this week – you guys rock!
To Steve Sommers and Kayla Lindquist of Sony…thanks for believing!
To my personal fashion stylist, my lovely wife Fazia, I love you baby!
