This month we asked our man Erik Ian to do our highlight.  I have known Erik for quite a long time…since back in NYC days.  Back then we probably just knew each other peripherally through the downtown scene.  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.  We didn’t really get properly introduced until I moved out to Los Angeles years later.  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.  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.  We give them no direction and total creative freedom and so far they have been great.  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!
