Winnie and Renzo in Amsterdam

I am from Haida Gwaii, a small chain of islands in the North Pacific off the coast of Canada and despite the distance I am still able to bump my neighbours around the word; this time it was one of my most favourite people Winnie Tsai, who had just come off of a few-weeks adventure through Egypt. Turns out we were both en route back to Canada and had a bit of overlap in Amsterdam, so we did what any reasonable young person would do, buy ridiculous outfits from H&M and do a photo shoot in the Netherlands.

While in Egypt Winnie had met Renzo, a very handsome Dutch boi from Rotterdam, and after a yummy breakfast went for a romp around town as first-time models.

Daniele in Tuscany

Two years ago in Berlin, I was lucky enough to meet Azzura, a wonderful new friend from the Tuscany region of Italy. We had kept in touch over this period and knew that we would reconnect somewhere in the world, and thankfully it was her home country!

Without an itinerary or plan, I had packed my bag and hopped a plane from Tirana to Pisa for a weekend of fun and new friends. My first day I was taken out to Livorno (on the coast) and was introduced to Daniele, a brilliant and very charming friend of Azzura; after a night out on the town, we had known that a photo shoot was in the cards!

The next day was taken up by some adventures with Olga in Florence, but my last afternoon we made the shoot happen. Daniele had never modelled before, but you definitely could not tell by his H&M style and good looks. Our time was short, but it’s the quality that counts, and I definitely count Daniele as a friend that I will have for a long time!
