Good and inspiring vibes - I was introduced to a gentleman by the name of Moruf [@Moruf88} through a mutual friend for an opportunity to collaborate on something in the near future. Nevertheless, a link to this joint was in his instagram bio. I inquired about it after experiencing the serenity gained from the melodic mixture and he informed me it was his lady's podcast titled "Native Folk" - You can keep up with her on Instagram and Tumblr.
I found out about Hanksy when theHundreds featured him as the host for their "Surplus Candy" docu-series. They visited several cities in North America and talked to locals about their street art culture. Well, this bts video was interesting to me because of his perspective on the street art and graffiti culture as a whole. Take a look!
In an effort to generate new relationships and give my portfolio some new images I'll be looking to collaborate with apparel and accessories brands. I'm really working to rid myself of any work that isn't in this lane. No more wedding proposals, engagement photos, or graduation flicks! I strictly looking to shoot product shots and lookbook material for brands and other artists. Sooo - If you have any friends that fall in that category please send 'em this way! Peace!
I work retail to make sure I don't starve month to month. Often times I get bored closing the store and end up using the mirrors and vsco cam to create these masterpieces. Judge me if you would like...but I like way these are turning out so we'll see where this project goes. I'll be posting three at a time for your view pleasure - Peep game on my second IG page @davehasWingz
Since I've changed the aesthetic of what DavehasWingz.com consists of I haven't been doing any local music updates really BUT - Charlotte heavyweight SchylerChaise just dropped visuals to his track "Rebirth" from his newest body of work "Black Sheep". Man this video embodies so much of what the city is I couldn't go without posting it. Big ups to FreshPres for this one - Geezus there is so much that's right in this video. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
A month or so ago I had the opportunity to shoot a lookbook for some good friends of mine who just started a clothing venture recently. Flaw Lifestyle was started with the mission of building morale and understanding in self-worth. Beyond knowing the people behind the brand; I just really like their mission to bring some positivity into the clothing game. This is definitely my preferred type of media work. Check out some of my favorites from this photo set. Peace!Read More
First, I want to thank anybody that used their time and or energy to make this concept happen. When I sit back and thing about the number of hands we had on deck to make this run smoothly, I'm humbled. From design and producing the clothing, to shooting the lookbook, to the blogs that posted, to the performances, and my amazing food sponsor - I'm really grateful by the love and support.Read More
My good friend KJ Kearney [@H1gher] visited Charlotte during CIAA Weekend to speak to the Solefood Digestible Sneaker Culture course being curated at Johnson C. Smith University by Professor Jemayne L. King [@Solefood]. I had the pleasure of first, witnessing the lecture in person and second putting together a slight recap of his presentation. I'm glad I was able to throw something together despite my compute troubles the last two weeks. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy - If you need any video work I'm always accepting inquiries through my company site: theFeatherbed.com.
A few days ago I became hip to a monthly compilation curated by a California based producer - DJ named "Ele" [@deejayEle]. My good friend Yohance Carter aka @VibeSounds, a Detroit based producer, was featured among four others including Ele. As I continue to push myself creatively I noticed nothing really helps more then great music. As I was entering the creative space I needed to be in mentally for the Psuedo Collection I felt how certain sonic vibrations effected the outcome of my work. I had never experienced this before and now I'm continually on the hunt for new tunes to bang as I work. I'm definitely going to keep track of these Culture compilations. Much love to Ele for putting these together - You can track them and download from the Culture Soundcloud page by clicking the photo above. Stream Culture 002 below! - Peace!
Almost two months ago I patted myself on the back for quitting my corporate job by taking a trip I couldn't afford to a city I knew little to nothing about. I learned a lot about myself, had a great time, and I'll never use Expedia to book another trip.Read More
