What do you do? I'm a street-style photographer
You're from the U.S. of A; so what brings you to Copenhagen?
Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities to photograph street-style. I can't really remember why I decided to visit Copenhagen for the first time, but I'm glad I did. The Danes have a great sense of style and colour, and I love a lot of Danish designers like Henrik Vibskov, Camilla Staerk, Peter Jensen, and Wood Wood.
How often do you visit?
Twice a year, usually the time between London and Paris fashion weeks though I'd love to come for Copenhagen Fashion Week if I'm ever invited.
Describe Copenhagen in 3 words:
Effortlessly cool and... Shit, I ran out of words.
What do you love about the city?
This may sound weird, but I love the weather. Every time I've visited, the weather has been sunny, mild, and glorious. Maybe I've just been lucky though. The people are generally warm and friendly... Also, everyone speaks really good English, and they're very patient when I wobble along messing up bike traffic with my clumsy pedalling. And I love any city where the public transit runs on the honour system. Silly Europeans!
Most memorable moment in Copenhagen:
I went with my friend to a fashion magazine party held at Tivoli Gardens. It was night time and we got there right as the park was shutting to the public. The lights were still twinkling and you could still hear faint carnival music playing in the background somewhere. It seemed so quaint and charming - this little wonderland smack dab in the middle of central Copenhagen - that now I totally understand the nostalgia that most Danish people I've met have for the place; or maybe it was the free champagne at the party? I dunno.
