Dank&&Dapper represents the idea of being or striving to be a well-rounded and multi-dimensional individual. Meeting your own standards of cool without sacrificing the beauty of the mind to appease the masses. Often times, you'll find that the union of beauty and substance to be a rarity. The purpose of this blog is to serve as a reminder that being yourself while pursuing a dream is much more gratifying, no matter what. You must appeal to yourself before you appeal to others. Dank&&Dapper is also the name of a lifestyle-brand I plan to launch in the very near future. In the meantime, delight in the visions of a visionary. [=♥
The first character to be captured by me this summer is this Haitian-Iranian fella by the name of Cyrus. I met him on the same night as Theo's show. He was part of the group of guys that asked to take pictures with my friend and I. I've been on the quest for a effortless-versatile-male-model for quite some time now, so when the opportunity presented itself, I took it.I delighted in the beauty of his rugged appeal and deemed it necessary to capture it. There are a couple more shoots line up in the future, but for now, I wanted to capture him in the most relaxed state I could possibly cook up.
