This past January I did a photo shoot for The Source Magazine called Jocks meets Jocks which I styled Andre Iguodala from the Philadelphia 76ers. The shoot included radio personality Kendra G  of 100.3 The Beat. Both are good representations on the court & the airwaves for the city of Philadelphia. The video was shot & directed by Yahya Ismail.

Make sure you go out and buy the April issue of the source to see my first editorial in a magazine.

Recently Nickelson Wooster, the men’s fashion director for Neiman Marcus & Top 5 Stylish Men of New York (Mos Def is in the list) came into the King of Prussia division. Taji Nahl of House of Ra’oof & I were invited to the meet & greet and view the presentation. Nickelson is considered to be one the of most stylish men alive and is known to pull off outfits that are considered unsafe.

The fashion presentation was for Neiman Marcus’ spring collection and displayed high end products from Prada, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana & Polo Black Label etc. It was good to see fellow men’s designer Seun from Duke & Winston as one of the models. The styling was impeccable and I really liked the way Nickleson made each piece complement the other. Styling and menswear at its finest.

On any given day of the week you may catch me downtown in Philly with my camera. Whether it be in Rittenhouse Square Park or on Walnut Street I always seem to find someone interesting to feature on Street Kings.

On a particularly sunny day last week Philly was alive with springtime. Downtown was buzzing with all kinds of stylish people out enjoying the weather. I got to snap lots of guys sporting their “Pre-Summertime” looks.
