Having photographed scores of shows and nightlife events over the years, Raul Soria Jr. and Tracy Chan sat down with B-Side HNL to reveal the perks and perils of shooting the Honolulu music and party scenes. Lenses and accessories? Check. Bumps and bruises? Check. Passion and determination? Absolutely.

I am a lifelong Honoluluan whose true calling is to tell the stories of others, whether through photos, film, video, audio or the written word. Here is a collection of my works – some previously published in periodicals like Billboard, the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Weekly, though most of what you read or view here has never been seen before.
