Before I started Citizen Couture, I wanted to incorporate an idea where I would feature people for an “In The Spotlight” profile shoot. This would allow me to collaborate with the subject for a fun, thought-out, and intimate shoot rather than a quick 2-minute snap on the street. Think of it as The Selby meets The Sartorialist, where the possibilities can take from the subject’s apartment to the exploration of hidden streets and gems in New York City.
My friend, Denmark, asked me if I could help him take photos for his website so we decided to stroll around Tribeca and West Village to capture some of the city’s atmosphere. When we finished our shoot, I realized that some of the photos came out pretty well and I decided to use it as my first “In The Spotlight” post. This idea is still a work in progress with hopes of collaborating with many people, including fashion bloggers, so please let me know what you think!
