This month we asked our man Erik Ian to do our highlight. Â I have known Erik for quite a long time…since back in NYC days. Â Back then we probably just knew each other peripherally through the downtown scene. Â I was that “snot-nosed” kid that worked at Union and he was an up and coming photographer that I would see at all the parties. Â We didn’t really get properly introduced until I moved out to Los Angeles years later. Â By then we both had started our families and it was no longer about the late night party scene but rather, Sundays in the park with the Fam. Â Eric might be the best dad on earth, and yes he’s a great photographer too, but his true calling in life….ULTIMATE FRISBY.
This monthly series has been real fun for us, we literally ask our friends to do a shoot with our gear. Â We give them no direction and total creative freedom and so far they have been great. Â Erik didn’t disappoint either…I mean, I am not sure how showing the Comme Des Garcons blazer inside-out is gonna help sales but at least the shit looks fly!
