WOMEN IN THIS TOWN

Besides capturing amazing street style around the world in my new book, I also had the amazing opportunity to meet some incredible women, getting their take on the state of fashion in their towns. I’ve known Jamie Beck (above) of Ann Street Studio for a few years now and always really admired the way she carried herself and went on about life. An inspiring woman and so honoured that she shared her story.

Ah it’s exciting that it’s almost here, not long to go now! The book is available to pre-order now and will be in bookstores November 1st.

WOMEN IN THIS TOWN

It’s hard to believe in only a couple short weeks, my second book Women In This Town will be available around the world. This project has been a labour of love that has really pushed me out of my comfort zone. Photographing inspiring individuals with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II in hand, the women featured in this book are really pushing the boundaries both in life and in fashion. I can’t wait for you guys to see it.

The book is available to pre-order now and will be in bookstores November 1st.

Japanese street style

JAPANESE STREET STYLE

I picked up this wonderful issue of Uomo a few months ago, celebrating summer street style in Japan and around the world. I’ve been to Tokyo during the warmer months about three times now and each time I want to extend my stay indefinitely because of all the amazing looks that turn from every corner. Thankfully, I’m going to be heading back at the end of the year and I’m looking forward to exploring the streets during the winter months. I can only imagine the colours amongst the white winter snow…if it snows of course…

WORKING SPACE

Since I started working for myself 2 years ago, I knew I had to find a routine that worked for me and got me out of bed in the morning. Working remotely was a way for me to still be around people, get me out shooting on the streets and an excuse to try every coffee shop in Sydney. The buzz is real. Obviously taking things with me everywhere is annoying but keeping it light and in a small package is key. My Jack Spade pouch has been my mobile office over the years and has been treating me well.

Kick up your feet

KICK UP YOUR FEET

While I was in Los Angeles earlier this year, I discovered this little record shop on the corner of Melrose and Fairfax Avenue. It’s hard for me to pass up a flick through vinyl but once I walked in, it seemed like it would take days to go through the amazingly huge collection. Instead, I asked the owner to recommend one record for a novice jazz enthusiast. The Jazz Messengers at the Cafe Bohemia, Vol. 2 is that soulful yet energetic jazz music that just puts you in the mood to kick back and the enjoy the ride it takes you on.

Also pictured: Warby Parker glasses, Lumira Cuban Tobacco candle.

Timeless print

TIMELESS PRINT

One of the few keepsakes I brought with me from Canada when I moved to Australia a few years ago was my collection of TORO magazine. The men’s lifestyle publication was distributed as an insert in The Globe and Mail from 2003 to 2007. During its four year print run, TORO garnered a number of accolades for its vision and style, spurring my love for the printed page and the reason why I became a graphic designer in the first place. 

TORO has been a big influence on the creative vision of MITT magazine in that I strive to create something that is timeless. Now we’ll just have to wait and see…

Movie music

MOVIE MUSIC

You either love or hate Woody Allen movies (or the man himself for that matter), but I personally can’t get enough of his genius filmmaking and musical taste. Being a musician himself, his movies are always scored in a way that really bring his characters and locations to life. Swing In The Films of Woody Allen is a compilation of some favourite jazz tunes featured in Midnight in Paris all the way back to Stardust Memories. If you can find it in vinyl, as I did in London this past year, it sounds even better.

Also pictured: Aquila shoes, M.J. Bale bow-tie.

Into the deep

INTO THE DEEP

I discovered this wonderful book, Hotel Il Pellicano a few years ago. The cover pictured the secluded deep blue waters of Tuscany’s Porto Ercole and inside the chic Hotel Il Pellicano and its guests including Emilio Pucci, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Britt Ekland, Kenneth Tynan, and Susanna Agnelli from 1964 through to current day. I get transported back in time whenever I flip through the pages, almost like having a mini holiday…almost. Until I can afford that dream holiday, I’ll stick to the deep blue sea of clothes in my closet. 

Also pictured: ECCO backpack, New Balance sneakers, M.J. Bale pocket square, Tissot watch.

TRAVELLING TUNES

Since re-discovering vinyls earlier this year, I’ve put together a modest collection while hopping into record shops during my travels. Having been a fan of Chet Baker through digital means, I picked up Chet Baker & Strings while I was in LA (or maybe it was Madrid) a few months ago. Almost whimsical, this LP has a light and airy feel that has me anticipating the impending warmer weather here in the southern hemisphere. I’m sure it works for the end of summer too.
