I was really intrigued to see how different the style was on the everyday people of the city. I don’t think I can judge much off of the five days I was there, but it reminds me a lot of New York City. You can’t really tell who is a native or who’s a visitor, it’s like a melting pot of various countries and

Being that I only went to NYFW for one day I was excited to attend London Fashion Week s/s 2013. As I still consider myself a new photographer going to fashion week is a great way for me to test my skills. If you miss a shot you miss a great image and no photographer likes missing a great shot. Since this was my first time in London I made sure I paid close attention to the details on every person I encountered. I can honestly say that searching for style is easier when its right in front of your face everywhere you look.

Saturday wasn’t just a regular day on the popular fashion landmark Walnut street. This day was the Rittenhouse Row Spring festival where streets were blocked off from Broad Street to 19th and Walnut. Rittenhouse Row showcases some of Philadelphia’s finest fashions, cuisines and entertainment. This occasion was exciting to say the least and like any other day on Walnut, the fashion-forward people were out and about on the busy street. As always I had my camera on my shoulder, but for some reason I only took pictures of one guy in particular which was Adrian Hardy.
I recently had the opportunity and pleasure of visiting the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. Not knowing how beautiful it was until my visit, the one commodity that I knew of was the NBA basketball team The Utah Jazz. With the breath-taking scenery with every turn of the head, the carefully thought through layout of the architecture, as well as the population of 181,743 of those who resided there was a sight to see. As beautiful as the city was my focus was to figure out if this city had any sense of style. I wouldn’t say the entire city did, but the few that did possess some sort of style stood out from the rest.
Despite me getting getting turned down from taking pictures of people half of the time (which may be due to the fact that they aren’t used to random people taking their pictures), nonetheless I was able to find a few diamonds in the rough. You be the judge and let me know what you think about this city’s sense of fashion from my view point. – K.R.T.
I’m always looking for stylish people to shoot on the street, some areas are more abundant with style then others.

Check out these cool guys I had the pleasure of photographing at Project Las Vegas.- K.R.T.

When roaming the streets, there are particular images I want to capture. On this particular day I noticed how many people incorporated fatigue into their look, hence inspiring me to dedicate a post to this pattern.

One of the most common questions people ask me when I’m getting interviewed is “What inspires You”. I simply reply everyday people.

Coming to New York fashion week with so many people from all over the world was really inspiring and it was great to see so many people take risks with their style.

“What you use to carry your belongings speaks volume”
I think men are starting to realize how important a bag is. The stereotype of it being considered a women’s accessory is being thrown out of the window. Having a bag to carry your everyday essentials is key, not only for keeping your pockets from bulging but to compliment your outfit with the silhouette of this functional accessory. – K.R.T.

Last year was my first time at the Mad Decent Block Party. What started out around the Mausoleum at 12th and Spring Garden has gradually gotten huge and spread to cities like New York, Chicago, and L.A., as well as Philly this year. Now in it’s fourth year, Mad Decent Block Party is becoming a summer tradition and this year it moved to the Piazza in Northern Liberties. Jammed packed with many different styles and people, Mad Decent was a perfect opportunity to capture stylish Kings in their element; vibing to good music and having a great time. -KRT
Water bottles & water ice was all I could think about during this 90 degrees day I picked to attend the Brooklyn flea. It was my first time but I have been hearing about it for awhile now so I was excited to see what the hype was about. Because of how humid it was I could feel the energy was low but I still enjoyed myself more then usual because I came with Erik Honesty of Cultured Couture Vintage & Ali of AnobleSavage. Being with the two of them gave me more insight on different things to look for that I might have overlooked. Check out some of the pics from my Day at the Brooklyn Flea market.-KRT

“Shades Scream Confidence”
As the weather breaks you start to find people searching for that perfect pair of cool shades.
