Follows: @Thefatjewish always puts a smile on my face. I mean, my mom even follows him, so boom, you should too. Haha. @Natgeo is one of my faves too though because it inspires me in many ways. Obviously, to travel more, but also adds humility and empathy with what's happening in the world around me.
Favorite place to shoot: I love natural lighting! So anything outside with lots of colors... Right now, I'm loving abandoned places, there's just so much you can do with it. Also the desert has proved its worth, except when it's below 40 degrees... Then - nope!
Footwear of choice: This question is always hard for me to answer because I'm pretty spoiled with what I get in sneakers. As of right now it's been a rotation of my Air Maxes, Air Force 1's, and Undefeated x adidas Consortium Superstars.

Follows: I have a few accounts that I really love to follow. If I have to pick one I would probably have to go with @jeremydeputat. I love following his account because every single photo is amazing!
Favorite place to shoot: My favorite place to shoot besides Detroit would have to be any city that I visit. I like to try to capture imagery that stands out to me when I visit places. It's always dope to be able to go back to those images and think about where I have been.
Footwear of choice: At the moment I have been wearing the "Pager Edition" Ice Creams. I have been more into my old sneakers than the newer releases lately. I do, however, have some Distinct Life x Reebok sneakers coming out in July that will be taking over my rotation as soon as they drop!

Favorite place to shoot: Anywhere on my travels, but Chicago and NYC always inspire me the most.
Footwear of choice: Nike Free

Follows: @leahminium - Her feed is probably one of the most refreshing feeds I've seen in a while, it's almost as if she lives in between worlds and what she captures and edits is what you would see if you were living where she lives. She mixes reality with the fantastical and her feed is sort of like the never-ending fairy tale.
Favorite place to shoot: My favorite place to shoot photos would have to be Soho, NYC. I get to capture some of the most stylish people there and come into contact with some of the coolest personalities. East London gets an honorable mention because the style out of London is really sick.
Footwear of choice: Of course, I have to go with Jordan 3 "Cement/Black," those are just my favorite all-around shoe, the Nike Flyknit Racer "Multicolor" is also one of my favorite shoes to hit the streets with and shoot because it's often a conversation starter while approaching people for portraits. I give an honorable mention to the adidas Ultra Boost because I've been wearing those like crazy lately it's a really sleek and comfortable running shoe as well as the Bait x adidas EQT running shoe that I shot for Bait and I found to be amazing because of its Statue of Liberty-inspired colorway.
