Slavin is widely known for his powerful music videos and branded productions that mash up clever concepts with bold imagery, and channel the energy of pop culture.
Slavin explains . . .

quoting Randy Scott Slavin In my music videos, I’ve continually tried to take concepts to the next level, to push the ideas to be more engaging, moving and stimulating—and I approach photography with the same philosophy ... When I began shooting landscapes, I was compelled to push the perspective. After experimenting heavily with panoramic photography, I developed a technique that could realize my desire to turn the real into the surreal. The result is something rebellious, beautiful and provocative. My ‘Alternative Perspectives’ series is a collection of the works culled from these photographic explorations. end Randy Scott Slavin quote
