Whenever I travel, I sincerely enjoy meeting people. No matter old friends, new acquaintances, like minded clothes horses or just interesting people, I am always up for it. Last time I was in New York City, I wanted to meet with Rose Callahan since I admire her work greatly. If you have not heard of her yet, you’ve been missing out! Fortunately, Rose’s compendium of stylish portraits can be found on her dandy blog.
So, on a cold day in January, my wife and I met Rose and her fiancé Kelly for a coffee. It was very interesting to learn more about their free lance work as a photographer / videographer team. One of their projects was the video of Sean Crowley, and another video chronicled their extensive trip to Europe, where they profiled a number of dandies in London and Paris. Among them were notable personalities such as Hugo Jacomet and Massimiliano Mocchia di Coggiola.
As such, I feel very honored that Rose wanted to take a few pictures of yours truly that day. I was wearing:
