Matt’s so Rad. Pro-Skater. Hot Dad.

Pro-Skater Matt Field and his son. Mill Valley, California. May 2017.

I’ve known Matt for a few years now, he’s an incredible skater -he’s one of these people who’s totally aware of his physical presence. Matt is a skateboarder, a professional -so no matter what, like a rock star, Matt will always have cool props. An avid Yogi, Matt continues to test himself physically.

Let’s talk about Matt’s style;

I’ve never seen Matt not look stylin’ – never. And I’m not surprised that Matt designed a line of skater shoes – these maybe from that line. Matt’s arms are ripped (as the kids say), and that is all YOGA baby! (too bad I can’t even lift my own body weight)..meaning he looks amazing in tank tops. When I talk about style, it’s a creative outcome for me..not in a pretentious way – like Matt here, he just has style – he gets dressed quickly, but has an eye for what looks cool. He takes risks, and that’s what we all see.

When I photograph someone with an incredible fashion sense, it’s exciting – it’s like looking at art – only in human form.  Check out Matt’s look below;

If I wore that hat/bandana combo, I’d look like I was trying to fit in at a Carrie Underwood concert.

Red socks  -gold shoes sans laces…

Vicky. Miami, Florida. December 2015.

Vicky is from Mexico City.  She studied Fashion Design and had her own line in Mexico City.  Currently, Vicky is living in Miami and using her skills as a painter and designer to create beautiful & fashionable Yoga mats. Her Yoga mat line is launching soon, this will help me “keep my eyes on my own mat”  -as I sometimes have an issue with focusing…ALWAYS, actually.

I’m pretty sure Janis Joplin wrote “Mercedes Benz” after a trip to Miami..”Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz? My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.” Miami is known for its cars and I love that Vicky squeezed three kids in this Porsche.

Decades after Janis Joplin’s song, Will Smith wrote specifically about Miami’s love of fancy cars in his song Welcome to Miami..”Hundred thousand dollar cars, everybody got ’em”… It’s kind of true – in Miami, it’s not only the wealthy who drive fancy cars. And certainly having kids would never stop Miamians from driving Porsches etc..

My mom drove a station wagon, and that wasn’t the norm..it was convertibles, two-door Mercedes and expensive sports cars. Personally, nothing made me feel cooler than riding around in my Mamas wood paneled station wagon as a kid in Miami – we were “retro” before “retro’ was considered cool. I’m totally kidding, we felt totally dorky in my mom’s station wagon – and my brother reminded me that a wire stuck out of the back, which accidentally caused gashes on our friend’s skin.

My friend’s mom drove a Porsche convertible, that car would pull up to school drop-off and arouse serious attention, my mom’s wagon..not so much. So in some way, I appreciate Vicky squeezing a family into a small, fancy sports car..
