Dear friends, after almost 3 weeks without a new Daily Dose fo Happiness, I hope you’ll forgive me. I was busy with my assignement from the famous french seaside resort “La Rochelle”. After discovering Style and the City and my work as a humanist street style photographer, they asked me to “glamourousticaly” humanize their next ad campain by bringing life, love, happiness, friendship in their pictures. No casting, just real people on the go. No fake situations, just capturing beautiful moments. A difficult task but very instructive. And they loved what they saw. Remember the adorable Hanaé and her sweet family, that invited me on a cruise. I hope that someday fashion brands will realize tha real people, real life are their best ambassadors. I will be more than happy to help them. The only rule : I am in charge. As usual.
Now, here I am, back in Paris. 3 weeks without posting a new Dose of Happiness seems like an eternity for me. How can I make myself forgiven ? LOL. I dipped into my archives and … YES ! I got it ! What about some memories from the last Paris male fashion week ? What about some moments from Tom Brown fashion show ? What about handsome chic stylish men (remember Alexandre Elichat and Sam Lambert) Since you asked me to attend male fashion week and take more pictures of men, I must to tell you that I enjoy it more and more. If I love how a woman’s body move, I have to admit that men have a different kind of sex appeal. I love women but I feel like it’s my duty to honour men who know what style is. Thank’s to designers like Tom Brown, I am hopeful abou being someday stylish myself, LOL. Attending a Tom Brown fashion show is like watching the famous and Emmy winning TV show ” Mad Men”, it’s like encountering Don Draper every 10 meters. LOL.
What about a sweet cherry on the cake ? I know you love cherries, LOL. And talking about a sweet cherry on the cake, I must thank God, if exists, to made me a humanist photographer. Why ? Because does Tina Leung know how naturally glamorous she is ? I am always sad when I see photographers taking street style pictures, focusig on clothes instead of focusing on the natural beauty, on capturing sweet moments, great memories that people will like to watch again from 10 years from now. They miss so much beauty, so much grace. It’s disrespectful to the art of photography.
If you dive into my archives (the search tab is at the right of the menu, top of the page), you’ll be able to find more pictures of Tina Leung. Impossible to take a bad picture of her. Remember New York fashion week ! I tried, IMPOSSIBLE. She is what I called a “360° natural beauty”. Some women and men are gifted. I am not. I have a specific angle of just 3° that makes me look handsome. If you miss these 3°, I look like a Troll. LOL. Anyway. I am not Brad Pitt, but I have a gift that could attract girls : I know how to cook pasta. Sexy, isn’t it ! LOL.
All right, let’s go back to Tina Leung. if you don’t know her, the most important think to know about her is not what she do, but how she is with people : adorable, kind, available. That’s why I never stop her. A person reveals more about itself in real situations than in fake situations. Remember : I love real life, people in real. Help me to convice fashion brands to humanize fashion and I promise you amazing entertainment, amazing emotions. So thank you Tina for being so cool with everybody. I hope someday that you’ll help me to convince fashion brands to humanize fashion with “real people in real situations”. Enjouy your summer and see you very soon Tina.
