This is one of my first times shooting men in womenswear which is always pretty interesting, I also tried experimenting with some fun new angles and post-production.
I originally found out about Sloane (the stylist of the shoot) during her debut show at FashionXAustin. I really like her aesthetic and thought it’d be great to collaborate again after our first shoot. I’ve been experimenting a lot with men in womenswear and this shoot consists of mostly that. Plus, a bit of whimsicality which is something I haven’t explored much in my photography just yet.

I originally started by taking pictures for my middle school then started having impromptu photoshoots with friends, trying to replicate the type of work I saw in fashion magazines. I also really liked America’s Next Top Model, although now I see it as a total gimmick.
I think that unlike many other photographers who shoot a very distinct look, may it be minimalist clothing in studio black and white or other things as a staple, I try to have a distinct feel for each one of my sessions. I’ve never felt the urge to fall back on a ‘look’ that is characteristic or preferential for me.
I’d rather have an array of style and definition by breadth.
Many photographers shoot a singular concept, I try to diversify myself as much as possible. So, in a sense, my style is whatever the viewer of my work ascribes it to be.
Listen to yourself more and don’t rely on what the adults think is best for you. Apply to art school and not business school because the adults told you. Send out more emails, because eventually someone will write back. I try to keep the pulse of culture, and not only do I think commercialism and art aren’t mutually exclusive, but they thrive in harmony.
