Follows: My favorite Instagram account is @insighting. There’s just something about his pictures that make me feel something! Also his symmetry is so good!

Favorite place to shoot: Montreal is my favorite place to shoot simply because it’s where I am from. I’ve explored a lot but there is so much more you can do and find.

Footwear of choice: My footwear of choice would be my Nike Free Powerline+

Follows: @aabbyylou no doubt, she’s my biggest inspiration and always pushes me to try new things and pursue my biggest interests in photography.

Favorite places to shoot: I love shooting in the forest when the foliage is in full bloom and the atmosphere is unreal. I’m always a fan of shooting on overcast or rainy days as well, the lighting in those moments always compliments my style and brings out the mood of a place or situation. I’m also a huge fan of capturing harsh light in the city and incorporating it into portraiture.

Footwear of choice:​ Dr. Martin Tobias 8-Eye Boots

Follows: Futura (@futuradosmil) definitely has the most consistently interesting account to follow in my opinion. Always has some outlandish, survival vibes going on.

Favorite places to shoot: You can always catch me in some city streets catching somebodies mans off guard, nature is where it’s at though. I’m telling you, go into a forest with a camera and a backwood rolled up… catching bangers no doubt.

Footwear of choice: I just recently picked up some visvim FBT’s in Tokyo… I’ve always wanted a pair to rock daily. They look even better now with the miles I’ve put on them.


@schirinfrosch / Followers: 8,033 / Joined: 3 years ago

Follows: I follow a lot of people. One of my favorites is @kat_in_nyc, especially after I met her last month. She is amazing.

Favorite places to shoot: In the nature where the ocean touches the sunset or on rooftops with an amazing view.

Footwear of choice: Y-3 Qasa or just simple biker boots.


@tilore / Followers: 15.7k / Joined: 2012

Follows: @1000deaths – Fernando has a dope sense of style rocking the best pieces from Acronym and Cav Empt along with customizing and creating his own garments and being just a cool, inspiring and talented yo-yo wielding guy.

Favorite places to shoot: I’ve really been enjoying interiors lately with good window light and high speed film.

Footwear of choice: Toss up between my pink Raf Stans or white Mercurial Superfly’s I just grabbed in New York
