#ChucksandCameras Profile by Daniel J. Vasquez

A few days into NY Fashion Week and I found myself documenting fashion shows sponsored by Monster Products (Check some of photos on their Facebook). During my time shooting I kept running into a certain individual full of his own unique style. On the third day, fate had it that we both had time to spare between fashion shows and he was rocking a dope outfit fitted with some unreleased Chucks. Naturally we spoke on our love for Converse as a whole (I now need to check out the Converse store in Boston and get a custom pair!!) and was able to get a few quick photos during our conversation.

Outside of YRB, Jonn is a Professional Adventurer. Coining the term from comic books; you never seen Wolverine, Spider-Man or any other super hero in the Marvel Universe reveal their true occupation. They were all Professional Adventurers. Jonn comes from a more technical, digital and media background. Out of school, he worked on multiple movies with Spike Lee, built websites for Sean Combs and much more.
