paa Lookbook

February 11, 2013

My good friends Al and Peter have launched a new line of sportswear today, called paa.

It was an honor to shoot pictures for them a couple of weeks ago. For their first lookbook, I photographed 3 local NYC gents who own small businesses.  They are each wearing one of the hats in the first paa collection.

I have a couple of these hats and I love them — check out their website at and you can see the hats as well as the rest of the photos I took. Big congrats to Al & Peter!

(ps – sorry for the silence around here, I’ve been in California and have not been in front of a computer very much.  I have more new work to share with you tomorrow – stay tuned!  In the meantime, you can follow my adventures on Instagram)

    I’ll probably not be getting a hat anytime soon, but these portraits are fabulous. I didn’t even notice the hats at first. I guess that would be the point–they look natural on a pretty wide spectrum of subjects.

    SO MUCH character in this images, such great feeling – I absolutely love it Brian. Certainly one of the most interesting lookbooks I saw in a long time.
