My Free-Spirited Nomad
The power of Whatsapp is impeccable. It allows me to stay in contact with my greatest friends from anywhere in the world. I can share images, call/text, and just talk trash as if I was going to see them later on that day.
Due to the glory that is Whatsapp, I was able to stay in communication with Candace Rogue (formerly known as Candace Rogers) while she was getting her Gypsy Farmer on. She left her job in corporate and bounced between Costa Rica and Nicaragua for three months to pursue her passion in urban farming. I have to say I find her spontaneity and courageous heart admirable.
While she was away, she expressed her interest in revamping her v-log and shifting away from discussing fashion functionality exclusively. She believed it would be more efficient to rebrand her v-log, and have it be an accurate reflection of the lifestyle of Candace Rogue. Candace Rogue's revamp will not only focus on her ongoing adventure of pursuing self-determination but also highlighting the successes and ventures of other young entrepreneurs and free-spirited artists she finds inspiring. She asked me to assist her with the creative direction for the relaunch of her website and v-log. I was down.
I contacted my dear friend, Tyler S.A. Jordan, to help out with photography and man, did I make a great decision. He was extremely attentive to our client and the creative synergy was satisfactory. Not to mention he's a savage shooter.
The creative direction of the shoot was aimed to depict a sense of nonconformity and liberation. The location(s) for the shoot were at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and Prospect Park. Ms. Rogue was shot in front of greenery with an abundance of floral accents. Final edits were completed by myself.
