WATTZUP POWER

When it comes to portable chargers for your mobile device there chargers that will charge and then there are chargers that will be a dope accessory to your lifestyle. WattzUp Power is changing the game when it comes to stylish chargers. We got the chance to use and talk with the Founder of WattzUp Power Wally. Here is his words,  

"Some of the greatest things in life are birthed on the internet. From Damn Daniel to cute kitten memes, two things are clearly evident; people love the internet and we simply cannot live without our mobile devices. Keep it real. Most of our phones are approaching 10% battery by lunch. WattzUp Power switches up your boring block shaped power banks by taking the things we love about the internet and turning them into portable chargers. Everything from the poop emoji to a 3-D molded Unicorn can be found on their growing web store offerings. Each WattzUp Power charger can power your iPhone 6/6s to 100% in a single use. Clearly the coolest chargers on the internet have arrived". 

Go support greatness. . .

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY: Camera Necklace



Once again we teamed up with the hip hop jewelry brand KINGICE to show case 14K Gold Camera necklace. We had the pleasure of pitching the concept to them and look what was created. It's modeled after vintage Leica camera plated in 14K gold, each pendant aims to replicate the lens, rewind crank, shutter release and focusing ring, giving this piece its look of authenticity. Each pendant features a matching 30", 2mm Franco chain to give this camera its one-of-kind look.

TRANSCENDENCE by JET PHYNX


Our favorite Delaware artist Jet Phynx is releasing a new mix tape in 2016 called "TRANSCENDENCE." We had the opportunity of photographing the cover for the mix-tape. It will consist of 16 songs from my best 3 un released hip hop albums. The album tells a story of who Jet Phynx really is. Parris, the man, the father, the son who has battled between good n evil. All real stories that his father would be proud of. No gimmicks just facts.

The songs go from dark to light but people will get the chance to see the man behind the shades. The songs will also come with videos as well. Similar to what Beyoncé did with her self titled album. It was almost like a movie with a soundtrack. But over all it could be a great platform for the music, videography, and fashion styling.
