This past weekend was a weekend that I won't soon forget. Not only did I accomplish my most complicated and large-scale team based shoot yet but I did it almost 100% successfully (unexpected encounters are bound to occur). If you have been following this blog for awhile then you may already be well aware of the fact that I was named the New York brand ambassador for Jacked Fashion and with that I wanted to give everything I could back to Jacked Fashion for this incredible and overwhelmingly inspiring opportunity. That said I have been spending the past few months planning an epic two part photo shoot of Alaska's newest collection as a way to introduce Jacked Fashion to New York. The results were more than extraordinary and the one thing that I have really taken away from this experience is that if you really want something than you can't be a wallflower waiting for it to hopefully come to you if you cross your fingers tight enough, you just have to take it. Put on your very best dress and own that shit, talk that talk and walk that walk. No one will take you seriously until you take yourself seriously so even if you're walking around with neon orange braids in your hair and a pink cow print coat on your back never flinch in the face of adversity. Jacked Fashion is not a brand for the wallflowers; it is for a small niche of people that know who they are, what they want to say, how they want to say it and they don't EVER want to do it quietly.
Since I am still in the process of editing and deciding the future fate of these editorials I can only give you a sneak preview of some behind the scenes snap shots myself and assistant Alex Rizzo captured. To see some more leaked previews you can check in to my instagram here or Jacked Fashions here. In the meantime enjoy these scenes from behind the scenes until the actual scenes can be released. That totally made sense.
