Juanes Press Conference
I can count using only the fingers on my right hand, the number of Spanish-speaking music artists which I actively listen to. So you can imagine my surprise when one of them flew into Madrid and asked me to cover his press conference. I’m talking about none other than the Grammy Award winning Colombian sensation: Juanes.
The event was held at the Colombian embassy here in Madrid and press from all over the world lined up outside for the occasion. Since I was covering the event as a whole, I was often hurried to the front rows of journalists and behind closed doors where neither I nor my gear felt quite adequate. But in the end it all comes down to being able to manage your settings in a pinch. Getting ferried from room to room under varying lighting can be quite trying since as we all know: Juanes doesn’t like to be kept waiting. That’s not true at all, he’s a wonderful human being despite his rock-stardom. You can see it in his eyes.
