70’s Saitia

model: Saitia
stylist: me

Saitia is a modern, hip guy with a look perfect for urban and typical fashion shots. Which made it challenging to do a vintage-inspired shot with him, since I couldn't style his very modern crew cut.

Obviously, I drew inspiration for this from the iconic Jimi Hendrix. Although he felt odd in an afro wig (and kept letting me know how "different" it was for him), Saitia was a great sport and helped bring my vision to life.
