Out of the Loop

There is an obvious difference between a man, and a man who knows his tailor. A quarter inch here, a taking in there... these adjustments go a long way. The flashing of the ankles, the oxford button down peeking through the blazer sleeves, and not needing a belt through the trouser loops. Each one of these details take, not only your outfit, but entire closet to another level. (Without hurting the bank... usually)

I Went To The Woods

This is the first time I took complete control of a shoot. I've always allowed my friends to style themselves and I would simply give suggestions with inspiration photos, but always letting their personal style do the rest. However, I've had this blended concept in my head for a while and I wanted to execute it the way I saw it in my mind. This is the result. 

There is something magical that happens when a woman wears a man's oxford. It's hard to put it into words, but the tailored ruggedness of the style seems to melt away with a feminine subtlety. It's a look that is eternal.

Smoke Break

There is something about capturing a person in their most natural setting. Sitting down outside a shop, on scaffolding, or just standing on a corner.... each one taking a moment to themselves. Breathing out the stresses of the day and being able to share an intimate moment with your subject is one of my favorite parts of photography. When you add in each one of their outfits, it makes that moment even sweeter.

Code Blue

Worked hard this past weekend in the city with Cody Min. Be prepared to see The Preppy Scholar in a new way with the release of my very first short film! Cody and I teamed up to start the first of what may be a whole new aspect of the blog. I just went over the most recent edit of the film, and all I can say is... be super excited for the release of this work!
