Something I don’t talk about too much is how I style my shoots, or that I style all my shoots. Honestly, this is a job I’d never like to give to someone else. From selling vintage at Unamused Apparel, to collecting vintage pieces, I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes, so I have an extensive, time period wardrobe to use in my images.
I don’t believe in expensive clothing, well I can’t really afford it, but for the time being I will say I don’t “believe” in it. Plus I find thrifting to be exhilarating, finding a good piece between pilling Juicy Couture sweatsuits is like winning the lottery.
Sometimes my pictures come from a place of personal struggle, or a need for social activism, however others are just funny and kitschy. Here’s one of those. A depiction of what I assume would be a couple of 70’s drug smugglers.
