Through small-screen stardom, a turbulent phase with pop hopefuls Wild Orchid, and subsequent multi-platinum sales with arena fillers Black Eyed Peas, Fergie‘s career has been quite the rollercoaster. The singer and rapper born Stacy Ferguson got her first major break as a youngster on the television program Kids Incorporated. Featured on the show from 1984 through 1989, she continued to take infrequent acting assignments afterwards and joined a group that developed into Wild Orchid. Ferguson was with the group for three albums, the first of which placed three singles — “Supernatural,” “At Night I Pray,” and “Talk to Me” – on the Billboard Hot 100. Professional and personal issues motivated her to leave the group in 2001.
Ferguson rebounded two years later when she joined the Black Eyed Peas during that group’s sessions for their 2003 pop breakthrough Elephunk. Nicknamed Fergie, she was featured on each one of the album’s hit singles, from “Where Is the Love?” through “Let’s Get It Started.”

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
