Via Hoxton Streets - Part 1

It has been a busy Tuesday - one straight after the Bank Holiday (which incidentally I had no time to “chill” on) - and I am sitting in Costa Coffee photo-editing, but realising I need to share with you these awesome shots I captured of friend, musician, and creative associate Jumee recently in Hoxton!

Someone walked past and joked: “who do you think you are…David Bailey??” as I crouched really low to capture this shot at the angle I have. I simply grinned and said, “maybe”. I want to be the best I can be in my fields of interest [graphic design and photography] and will do whatever it takes…

The feel I was looking for in these shots was very much ‘urban’ and that ‘I run the fashion on these blocks’ type of feel - interpret that as you may! I feel I have achieved it, but would love to know your thoughts!

I will be sure to drop more across my photography Instagram very soon; and a few on here of Aaron Anderson which I captured this very same day!

Happy Tuesday all :)

Why? Because this look was captured by chance :)
