Chasing Musical Moments with Director @nabildo

"When I hear music I like, my mind turns into a pinball machine," says Nabil Elderkin (@nabildo). “Music, traveling and even some self-doubt are probably what drive me the most creatively.”
Though Nabil is perhaps best known as a video director—his recent work includes John Legend’s “All Of Me" and Beats by Dr. Dre’s "The Game Before The Game"—Nabil also self-identifies as a photographer and “amateur professional.”
"My film work can be pretty dark," he admits. "I like to think I am a little more approachable and humorous on Instagram."
His account reflects this playful, almost music-video-like sensibility, and often feels like a scrapbook of vibrant street photography from his international travels.
"I chase birds all over the world with my iPhone,” jokes Nabil. "When I get off a plane in a new place, my lungs fill with a new air."
