Follows: One of my favorite Instagram accounts is @byseanbrown. I really love how he uses his Instagram to not only showcase his everyday life as a designer but also as a moodboard for his clothing line. His feed has such a strong brand message.

Favorite places to shoot: I love shooting in nature but definitely gravitate to places that have exotic plants or tropical settings. I love places that have unique culture such as New Orleans. It is my overall favorite places to shoot because it’s my hometown. The architecture and the lifestyle there is so unique due to it being a melting-pot.

Footwear of choice:​ Nike Roshe One and Nike Air Presto

Follows: I don’t have one favorite in particular. I tend to like any account that thrifts, or is uncovering/digging for OG gems in some way!

Favorite places to shoot: I just randomly think of pictures to take, so usually wherever I am when that happens is my favorite place to shoot at the time.

Footwear of choice: I could go on and on about favorite Nike shoes. To keep it simple, Nike Air Presto, Jordan 1’s, Nike SB’s pre-2009!


@kickstq / Followers: 113k / Joined: February 2014

Follows: I regularly check @jerrylorenzo‘s account for style inspiration as well as the spiritual messages he posts.

Favorite places to shoot: I was recently in LA where I was shown a lot of dope spots in the downtown area (DTLA).

Footwear of choice: Air Jordan 4 Cements.

Follows: @mahahardy – This guy is the real deal and probably one of my biggest inspirations, he wrote a book on camo and created the greatest streetwear brand of all time, maharishi!

Favorite places to shoot: I would have to say Joshua Tree but on a recent trip to Morocco its definitely now going to be a tie. Both for the same reason that it can be so desolate and change so much every hour with the angle of the sun.

Footwear of choice: Nike, bring back the Vandals please!
