SARTORIALUST | "McKinley" shot by Chio Gonzalez.

It’s always a pleasure being able to collaborate with other creatives especially those who inspire you immensely with how passionate they are in what they’re doing. Four weeks ago, I got to shoot with such people namely Chio, Chissai, and Celest and this was the final outcome. Do check out their work because these kids got talent as proved by the photos seen here.

We got extra lucky that day in terms of weather conditions. When we got to the shoot location, the rain was pouring which was the exact opposite of how we wanted the weather to be like but thankfully, it eventually stopped. Thank you, weather gods. It was still quite gloomy but we made it work.

As per usual, we also had to be on stealth mode when shooting in order to avoid getting caught by security guards and be asked to leave the premises. It still baffles me as to why shooting in some public places isn’t allowed but hey, things like that won’t stop us from doing what we do.

After walking around in search of possible spots to shoot in and three outfit changes we were able to wrap up the shoot in three hours and called it a day.
