I met Dasha on the street of SF like most people I featured on the blog. I think she is one of the coolest people I have met for a while.
She came to the U.S last year for college from South Korea. She didn’t go to high school but worked instead. She said because of that she got to learn about what she likes or doesn’t like in makeup and fashion at an early age. She went to university though after taking an exam similar to SAT.
I asked her what her major is in college, she said restaurant management, but she wanted to try something else too. She said, “As long as I figure out something before 40, it’s ok.” I was thinking to myself. Wow. I really like her attitude.
The thing I get out of Dasha’s story is that you need to create your own path. Not just simply follow what everyone does. Here she is in America, experiencing a new culture. She seems to be so confident in herself and so comfortable in her own skin. Is it just youth? What happened to us adults, I mean people who have been working for a while after college? Lol we don’t seem to be as hopeful, it’s something to think about.
If I could go out on a photoshoot on a Saturday the rest of my life, I would be glad to do it! What’s a better way to spend one day of my weekend with fellow photographers and shoot my heart out? Lol
On a different note, being able to work with models in a outdoor nature setting has been a game changer. I really love what we are able to create with the right elements. Love these two’s styles and vibe. Love. love.
Chinese kids are so fashionable these days! They study fashion at Academy of Arts. But the girl with the hat told me that they are so busy that they usually don’t have time to dress up and be pretty. It’s only because it’s Saturday, they went all out.
Shooting with a fellow photographer from France for work. Capturing beautiful people on the street.
Going to see a friend’s photos on display at a shop in Mission.
I found the coolest kids in Mission, literally. That 90s outfit! You kids beat all the hipsters in the area in the fashion game.
Taking Bart from Mission back to downtown. Yes, I’m looking at you and I’m taking a picture of you. So?
Back to Powell St. I need to get back to the office to pick up some stuff before heading home. Talking about fashion with these two 17 years old. Get some perspective on street wear. Learned a new word “hype kids”, people who wear supreme, babe, etc.
This is what true style looks like. No copy and paste.
