Over half a year ago, I visited the then SNKR Inc HQ and filmed a short video and took some flicks! Unfortunately, the footage was lost but I still wanted to share my photos. Look out for more work with SNKR Inc in the future!
Although I have yet to share any of my past work, I've been shooting for the next up and coming media outlet for sneaker culture Snkr Inc. Their creative director John Columbo is a really good old friend of mine and he reached out to me after I moved to Los Angeles to do some shots for them, and I've swung by ever now and then ever since. I'm really proud of what they've achieved so far, and even happier that I've been given the opportunity to contribute to their company.
Shortly after my return to Japan, John shared the huge huge news with me - he made his own sneaker with the legendary brand we all know, Fila!! Beyond excited for him, he also gave me the honor to shoot the lookbook for them with influencer Beija Velez.
Our main shoot locations were at Marina del Rey, since some of the shoe's concept was derived from a boat - and the remaining was at the Kaws BFF statue due to the matching colors. A huge congratulation to the guys over at Snkr Inc and my mans John for doing his thang.
