Well I must say that I’ve had quite the time guest blogging for Save The Last Pinker! Maybe this is how I should have started my journey all along, however it’s better late than never. For my closing post, I thought it would be fun to do an interview… with myself of course! Toronto (Canada) based photographer Arden Wray of Boots and Pine is one of my favourite artists to follow. Arden takes photos of the quirky and eclectic inhabitants of Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods. In addition to her photographs, Arden interviews each individual, so that we can get a glimpse into their unique lifestyles.
For the past month I’ve been revealing my style through my photos and my posts. If you’re at all like me, you’ll always want to know more about the person in the photos! I love discovering why people dress the way they do. I want to know their inspirations and interests. What exactly is the reasoning behind a person’s fashion expression? Perhaps this is the exact reason that Arden Wray happens to be one of my most adored photographers! Her photographs are stunning and she has the ability to make you feel as if you’ve known her subjects for years. It’s almost as if a fashion photography fairy punched her square in the face and then BAM! Instant talent! In normal-person terminology, Arden has a natural knack for bringing photography to life.
All that being said, I thought it would be a fun idea to give you lovelies some extra insight into my lifestyle. Although my time as a guest blogger for STLP has come to an end, I’ll still be kicking around the blogosphere at YoungOneHunting. The remainder of 2013 has many exciting collaborations, events and all-over goodness in store for YoungOneHunting. I’d love for all of you to be apart of this up and coming awesomeness. Just saying… it’s going to be pretty fantastic!
Well here you have it, I’ve taken some of Arden’s interview questions and have answered them for you below. It’s been fun lovelies! Until next time…
