While The Hollywood Music in Media Awards moves their awards venue from Hollywood and Highland Complex to The Fonda Theater. They were couple blocks away from the Award show that everyone is talking about it in Hollywood and that have created a huge BUZZ for the “LAMA’s”.
On Thursday, November 15, 2012 The 22nd Annual Los Angeles Music Awards and 6th Annual Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards were held at Avalon Hollywood nightclub located 1735 Vine Street in Hollywood, CA 90028 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Per event producers over 1000 people attended that event.
“It was a great honor to be selected by the Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in photography”. I would like to thank those on both sides of the velvet ropes for their help. From the celebrities who have welcomed me and the many other fine photographers who have helped me learn how to be the photographer that I am today. I love being part of this community and being awarded this honor is more than I ever would have thought possible.” said Bob Delgadillo, award recipient and Diversity News Magazine contributor photographer.
Bob credits his mother for showing interest in photography, because she was the family historian and photographer. Nothing professional but she would snapshots of every family gathering going back to the 1940′s. Bob started taking photos and learning to develop film and making prints back to his junior high school days in the early 60′s. His interest continued on as an amateur hobbyist level with film until digital photography took off in the mid 2000′s. The advent of digital photography and the Internet now made it easy to do great photography at a economical cost. More importantly the ability to share your work with other professional photographers through the Internet was key to reawakening his interest in photography. He soon graduated to a DSLR camera and started posting on photo sharing sites and got great feedback and encouragement to move my photography into the professional level.
“Congratulations to Bob Delgadillo Recipient of 2012 LA Music Awards Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in Photography”. Bob is a very humble professional. You can count on him to photograph beautiful pictures, and capture those memorable moments. He works well with others, and gets things done in a timely matter. His photography work and friendly demeanor deserves to be recognized for all his hard work and dedication”. said Colleague, writer/reporter and photographer for Diversity News Magazine Stella Gomez.
On a press release by the event producers they stated that: Longtime Hollywood photographer Bob Delgadillo, a stalwart at red carpet events around the city, received a Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in Photography”
“The hours are long. For every hour of shooting an equal amount of time, I spent processing hours after the event and everyone has gone home. I work on the computer trying to get them up by the next morning so that they can see what they looked like at the event. The pay is minimal at best. Usually just enough to pay for parking and gas or gear that needs replacing. The real reward comes from taking that priceless photo of a person at a special event that they will always treasure. What other job can one do that does that for their clients?” concludes Mr. Delgadillo.
Bob shares with us that his Inspiration in photography started with nature, floral, landscapes and architecture. When he picked up digital photography his interest turned to street photography. He started reading up on great street photographers like Henri` Cartier Bresson and his book “The Decisive Moment” and it just clicked in him that this is what he wanted to do, what he was meant to do. Event photography and Hollywood go hand in hand. There is something always going on from red carpet movie premieres, charity events, fashion shows and concerts. This type of photography is very challenging with unpredictable conditions and very tough competition. Things happen very quickly and if you are not ready you will miss catching that one moment in the event that tells the story.
