I’m always trying to figure out new ways to stretch my creativity and I also enjoy working with others who are good at things that I am not. Like many stylishly conscious people I look to celebrities, artists, and designers to pull inspiration for my personal style. However the most effective influence can be found right in your own backyard.
Living in Oakland I feel like have access to a multitude of cultures and people who have distinct personal style. Since I have moved here I can see how my environment has directly influenced how I dress. This prompted me to come up with the “Locally Fresh” series. The goal is to put two people together. One photographer and one subject with distinct personal style, give them some guidelines and very little direction and see what happens. I believe in magic and to me this is what magic looks like. Identifying strengths and watching them flourish. I’m excited to share this first installment with you this week and hope that something about this influences you to take risks and be creative. Let me be your tour guide or a curator if you will of style.
