Ravie B on turning a Twitter call-out into a phone call to shoot Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s On the Run Tour

New York native Raven B Varona—also known as Ravie B—is known for covering music and cultural events around the city. Her live concert photos of hip hop’s biggest names like Future, Drake, Kanye, Cardi B, and Big Sean—as well as Beyonce & Jay-Z’s On the Run tour—have been featured by Complex, Fader, and Hypebeast amongst others. Raven also regularly shoots with big brands such as Beats By Dre, Nike and FinishLine.

Our recent discussion at the Canon Creator Lab at Free Space—moderated by Toronto-based musician and disciplinary artist, TiKA the Creator—explored Raven B’s inspirations, career highlights, and how she established herself as a sought-after photographer.
