The Making of Faculty Department

It has always been a passion to document people who have inspired and influenced my work.

Throughout this year, I have been working on my first photography book, Faculty Department, a publication exploring the lives of creative individuals. 

From the desk of Vince from Studio Faculty in Vancouver. At the moment, this is the current stage that we are in for creating this book.

This photo is from my inspiration board in my office from 2013 and has served as the foundation of Faculty.

Angus McIntosh 
I met Angus a few years ago, and I think he was one of the first few people I met in New York. It has been a great experience getting to know him and seeing how his passion for his craft and his love for the beach blend together. On one of our shoot days, we left town to Rockaway beach one morning, at about 6am. This shoot particularly helped remind me how important it is to make time for yourself.

 



Lauren Snyder
When I moved to Cobble Hill in Brooklyn, I came across this home goods and lifestyle store called The Primary Essentials. I was picularly taken by this shop, not only for its curated home goods, but for its passionate feeling and sense of fashion. In getting to know the owner, Lauren Snyder, I quickly came to learn that she was a former stylist before opening the shop. The photos take a closer look at Lauren at home. 



Art Comes First 
I traveled to London for the first time this past May to photograph Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of Art Comes First. Working often in men’s fashion, I was inspired by their style and lifestyle. It was such a pleasure to spend a day with them and see London through their eyes. 



Tokuhuko Kise
Tokuhiko is the owner of my favorite furniture shop, Truck Furniture. Based in Osaka, I went to spend time with him in the fall of 2013, and he was the first subject to be photographed for Faculty. I came across him through his catalogs that are sold at Kinokuniya, a Japanese bookstore in New York, and have been a fan of Truck ever since.  



Thomas Lehoux
I met Thomas in 2011 when I was commissioned to work in Paris. At the time, he had just opened his cafe, Ten Belles. It has been a very exciting time for the coffee industry in Paris, and I was very fortunate to meet Thomas and be able to document him and his business over the years.
