A couple weeks ago, I met up with Saq and his friend for a quick photo shoot in the busy streets of Ginza on a Friday afternoon. He was traveling to Tokyo for work, but wanted to do some photo shoots for fun as well. We didn’t have too much time to shoot, but we were able to get a couple shots in several different locations within Ginza, even some crosswalk shots (I think we did this at least 20 times!). He had so many creative ideas and I enjoyed listening to some of the kinds of shoots he’s done in the past, so we’ve decided to collaborate again when he returns to Japan later this year. I asked him about his career as a photographer, and he told me he used to work in Paris for 2 years as a professional photographer. Truly blessed to be able to work with talented photographers like him. I’m glad we got so much variety in such a short time!
I would normally never wear such a bright, tacky print, but I was so drawn to this cropped T-shirt when I went shopping at Zara a while back.. I found it quite easy to style with a pencil skirt like the one I am wearing, and also relaxed trousers or simple denim. I tried to keep the rest of the outfit simple with just black and white.
I hope you all had a good, relaxing weekend and a great week ahead!
