PERSONAL : What about my own style?

“I like change in my life”

Capturing and judging street style …that is what I do when I’m on the streets. That’s also what you guys expect when visiting my blog, but ….what about my own style when looking at fashion and gear? I mean, photographer often dress quite boring (even at Fashion Week!). In this post I will discuss my style …

When I’m shooting on the streets I like to be dressed (mostly) black because then I blend in more for some serious street photography. Being a photographer/ blogger I’m limited to more practical clothing, because of the hours I spend on the streets in both the cold and the heat. Not to mention the loose fit for proper movement. Nevertheless, I have to say that in time my own style has been improved …kinda logical being occupied with street style/ fashion photography. Another quite important reason is my wife, fashion blogger Fabuliciousgirl, who is the secret power behind the blog.

“Can’t really decide what style”

Besides being a photography/ blogger I also have a full time job at a financial company, so I have two main styles: Chic and Urban. Chic is the style I wear at the office or at an event where a chic look is more suitable. To be honest I can’t really choose a particular style, I like change (who doesn’t right?) …but Urban is my favorite. Not only for myself but also what I prefer to capture on the streets.

When talking about style, my gear is also really important. When looking at cameras I really like retro styled ones, because they remind me to the old days of pure photography. I hope to shoot with a Leica M9, M or Monochrome one day! On the other hand I have my computer which is needed for post-processing and blogging …so no better option than Apple of course. So I also like modern and clean design, for instance my workplace. And also here you’ll see the difference in style…

…Like I said, I like change in my life.
