Embracing Vintage

Whats up everyone, It’s been awhile I know. Life has been crazy, and I’ve been spending the last few months trying to figure out some things with my life and the direction it’s heading including the direction I have been wanting to take my blog. During that time I have been looking for that spark of creativity that drove me to begin my Instagram page years ago in the first place. And don’t get me wrong, I have always and still do love what I do. But I had began to feel like I was doing the same things over and over again, projects became monotonous and each shoot began to almost feel the same. Enter this fantastic creative project, something quite a bit different that what I would usually do. Taking a break from the urban streets, and experimenting with a very different environment with a more editorial style.

For this look I decided to introduce to the mix a couple of vintage pieces that have been in my wardrobe for quite some time now, and while they have been seeing some use recently (mostly due to them not fitting when I first got them) have not made an appearance on my page or blog until now. I wanted to stick to a fully classic ensemble, since bespoke in a more natural environment was the idea behind the shoot.

As for props we introduced a classic Nat Sherman cigar (a personal favorite of mine), and a wooden chair set in an open field. Funny enough, that is the extent of the planning that went into it. The project was a first time collaboration with local photographer Sarah Eberwein, and once we had the basic idea we ran with it and just started shooting.

This shoot and the images that came from it, mark the beginning of a slightly different direction I plan on taking my page through the rest of 2019. Expect more editorial style shoots mixed in with what you are already use too, with the goal of building these editorial projects on a larger scale.
