We got the opportunity to spend some time with recording artist Andy Mineo, who currently enjoyed some time at the #1 spot on iTunes. Andy's been a big fan of the shop since we first meet with him over a year ago while on tour so it was a real treat to shot him in some goodies from our fall lineup that mesh well with his style and need for functionality on stage.

Hailing from New Orleans, SF local Josh Farria shot our most recent ShopLooks for Spring/Summer 2014.
We caught up with him to talk With pieces ranging from Bedwin & The Heartbreakers, Deluxe, Nexus VII, Eastlogue, Red Card, and Purist’s 6 year anniversary collaborations
PB: Tell us about yourself and a bit about how you got into photography.
JF: Man, that's a long story... But I started shooting around 2010. Some of my close friends at the time were photographers, that inspired me to get into it.
PB: Where did you grow up?
JF: New Orleans.. North Miro st.
PB: Why did you choose film over digital?
JF: Because film is the shit.
PB: What projects are you currently working on?
JF: I'm working on 3 projects actually. 2k rolls project, and two shows. Gina Waters and Color Theory.
PB: Can you elaborate on any of these projects?
JF: Gina Waters is a gallery show based on "The everyday working woman in America". That's the most I can say.
PB: How has your style evolved since you first started and whats a source of inspiration for you?
JF: I mean, I've just been growing as a man. Im a man first, art is secondary and it's a hobby.The work evolves as I evolve. From the subjects to the ideas, and just the all around energy of the images. I’m inspired by my peers, and that's been the main source since day one.
PB: Lastly, you've recently undergone a name change, care to share that story with everyone?
JF: That's just me leaving the plantation with a suit on.
