Collins Nai, a photography intern at NYLON Magazine and one of FIT's most talented photographers. Collins' photography is out of this world, I couldn't help but look at all his photoshoots on his website and Facebook page. His angles are extremely sharp and his photo style mixed with his themes are extremely unique and beautiful. Here is an explanation quoted by Collins himself on what inspires his photography style and which particular photographers he looks up to, "Recently my photography style is influenced by different ideas that I come up with. I start with a concept that comes to me, whether its from a garment, location, artwork or model. I take this certain idea and go off on a tangent by developing it with other mutual concepts until it is fully built and ready to be shot. Much of the time the concept is never 100 percent complete until the editing and retouching process. The base of the concept is always solid and pre planned, however I always leave room for new things to come up. As far as photographers I'm inspired by; my first inspiration when getting into photography was Richard Avedon, and now one of my greatest loves as far as photographers is Steven Meisel. I love the stamina of his career and how diverse his body of work is. His fashion stories are unbelievably relevant and thought provoking. His work truly marries my love for art and commerce." Collins shows of his photographic talent not only for NYLON Magazine but for FIT's BLUSH Magazine too! He's definitely one of my favorite photographers... Check out some of his work below!
