This was my first time visiting Japan and what a trip it was. I mean, it was a trip! Everything about this place left me awestruck, but my favorite part of it all was the people I was with. Allow me to name drop here: Caley Vanular, Blake Myers, Sean Pettit and Evan Mock. Those names don’t necessarily need introductions, but if they do, in the words of the almighty Jay-Z, “Type it in. Google’s your friend, bruh.” In short, they’re all super talented, creative, sweet individuals and it was inspiring to team up with such unique humans. A huge arigato gozaimasu to Dario Phillips from Slowtide and Ben Classen from 111 Watches for making this collaboration happen and for choosing me to shoot it. It was an absolute honor. Now, where’s the nearest sushi special?!
