Whoa, it's been a while since I last posted! I've been busy in the last month including shooting the cover story for a Singaporean magazine and freelance photo editing. Here's another photo shoot I did for A. Cheng's social media.
We're starting off the new year right with a great portrait!
I first met RYU RYU at a fashion showcase and loved the clothing line's simplicity and elegance. Rebekah Ryu designs while her husband handles the business end. Production is based in the NYC's Garment District.
RYU RYU is also focused on giving; they donate a portion of their profits to helping provide basic necessities to North Korean children in rural areas.
Portrait of Beckie Ryu coming soon!
Tucked away at the very end of Monroe St in the East Germantown area of Nashville is Peter Nappi. Named after owner Phillip's shoemaker grandfather, Peter Nappi sells stylish leather boots hand-crafted by Italian artisans.
Even if you're not in the market for shoes, pop in to see the showroom, probably one of the most gorgeous I've seen in a while. Housed in a former industrial space, it's a massive open-plan room sectioned off into various areas with comfy club chairs, a mini cafe and concert stage (yes!). The double-height ceilings let in tons of sun which made for supple, soft light when I was shooting.
Here's a second portrait I created of Phillip with his wife and business-partner, Dana, right by the entrance. Look how much sunlight pours in! And check out the wooden shoe molds on the wall.
