Any photographers here?

The following is completely off-topic, so it's spoilered.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I have a number of old family photographs and the ones that I enjoy seeing the most, and that are on our walls, are those of family in natural settings...at work, sitting at home, etc. My wife and I don't have a lot of these and instead, like most, have pictures from holidays, birthdays and other events. In addition to a traditional anniversary gift, I'd like to get a photographer to take some of these types of shots. I want to make it a yearly thing, so we'll be able to see how our lives/clothes/faces/technology has changed from year to year. What I'd like is to get a photographer to spend some time taking some pictures of me (and her) at work, at home relaxed, etc. Really what I want are natural settings. What I don't want are pictures at studios or in "posed" settings. I have never been big on family portaits (I don't have many from my childhood) and I even find some wedding photos a bit cheesy. Anyway, my question is what type of photographer should I find? I contacted a couple of places and wasn't impressed with what they said. Would an art student be worth a shot or is this a weird proposition?

 I suck at IDing which RL stuff is decent... All I know is RLPL.

Bro, remember this, RL purple, black, and blue are good. Well, blue sometimes is not good. Green is no good, EVER!

No for me. It looks dated with those low gorge and besom pockets. Had the gorges been just a bit higher and my size, I would cop at a low price even the pockets are jetted. Lubiam doesn't seem to flip well even 1911. Studio is even worse on flea bay but both are decent quality to wear if they fit.

sorry if this is a noobish question, but are Ike Behar and Valentino not regarded as quality brands??

It all depends on what garments and who made for them. If I remember correctly, Isaia has made for Valentino Tailoring. Those are damn rare. That's a cop fosho.

Hurray, found another of my favorite plaid shirts...

post #64644 of 110375

Ok, so who knows vintage Abercrombie and Fitch?

 

I found a label with New York, Chicago and San Francisco on it, I think it is from the 60s. Does anyone know? I don't see a lot with SF on it. Do you know if they used SF on the label for very long?

 

 

If it helps any the label is on this.... (Click to show)

60's looks to be a good guess

Yeah that's the only resource I could locate....see my original post edited for pics.

lookin good man. Never thought I'd see vintage tweed and Etro (aka Roberto Grammelli) in the same outfit but that looks great.


quoting my finds from last night in a sad, transparent attempt to get attention and praise from you guys. mainline zegna STAPLE suit IN MY SIZE? bad ass EP's shirt, possibly the first time that brand has been posted in this thread? size small baron wells shirt, possibly only the second time this brand has been posted (the first time being ME, last year). COME ON DUDES.

I actually was meaning to quote this as an awesome find! I've yet to find a staple navy or gray suit in my size. censored.gif
