Maxime Ballesteros is a photographer originally from Berlin. Ballesteros makes pictures using a wide angle lens to not get too close to his subjects at parties. He also stated that he does not crop his photos. Ballesteros also uses what seems like a higher ISO causing some noise since he photographed in mostly low lit areas for these pictures.
Ballesteros set off to Miami for the first time for four or five days, he can't remember the exact number. He planned to photograph different parties in what he described as "urban areas". Rather than photographing the fancy black tie parties he favored towards the "psychedelic tour bus parties".
