Photographer, Timothy White, takes you behind the lens on his shoot with N.W.A. following the release of their break album, Straight Outta Compton. Timothy recounts his experience riding in Dr. Dre’s Mercedes, the moment the surfer walked into the frame that Timothy just barely captured as Dre was making a phone call. An incredible set of photos of an iconic group by a young photographer that would go on to make a name for himself in the world of celebrity photography.
Timothy White’s photo of N.W.A. he shot in Malibu in 1989 is currently part of the online virtual exhibition, Endless Summer, that also features photographic works of Henry Diltz, Guy Webster, Lynn Goldsmith, Pattie Boyd, Walter Iooss and Norman Seeff among others.
