Evan Tetreault


Evan Tetreault. Tet-re-aulttlak. Um what? Yeah, I have trouble too. But then Evan will just say it real quick and totally drop off the last part of the name and it sounds so good. I’m still practicing how to pronounce it. 

Anyway, Evan is a photographer who’s strength in his images is matched only by his knowledge of cameras and film photography, a dying practice in today’s camera phone driven world. Evan and I have had many a conversation over Facebook chat about the merits of film over digital, what it takes to shoot medium format, the beauty of the image and the power of the photo-narrative. (A little ironic maybe haha). 

This is just a quick phone snap of the man who’s got one hell of an eye and a very cool style while on a road trip with two other cool cats I’ll tell you about later as part of my collaboration with the Creative Council and Ugg Australia. Evan is rocking Dries Van Noten, Baldwin denim and Ugg Stevensons

I nominated Evan for the Ugg Men of Character contest because of his passion for analog, film photography and basically his stern belief in the revival of shooting medium format. It is quite a powerful ability to be able to know one’s craft as well as Evan knows about photography. I hope I can catch up!

James Wolfe

Click through the photos to see more.

Several thoughts came to mind when I first met James Wolfe on set. The first was something along the lines of “Wow, he’s got some serious red hair, I hope there’s enough room in here for the two of us,” as my chest puffed. Then, “I wonder if he gets shit for it, nah he looks like if he did he probably crushed all the ginger hater’s bones… Nice.”

Weird thoughts to have, but true enough. 

The first time James and I talked however we instantly bonded over our love for the Native American game of Lacrosse. He was a mid fielder (the most worked position), while I was an attack man. We were quick to become buddies and be each other’s man dates to the movies. It was great. James is the guy to talk to when you need a push over hesitancy’s fence.

But several weeks ago James took an inspiring leap and moved his life from New York to Los Angeles to become a full time actor. Ballsy, yes. Scary, yes. Passionate, supremely. 

It takes a lot of guts to follow your passions full time. And especially to be the cliche in the story of I-moved-to-LA-to-become-an-actor-but-I-wait-tables-until-I’m-discovered. Not James, he moved west with the agents and managers clamoring for that ginger mane. To which I smile. I nominated him for the Ugg Men of Character contest and I hope with all sincerity he can steal the show.

James sat for me a while back as part of my collaboration with Ugg Australia and the Creative Council and  and these are some shots I thought could hark back to the Hedi Slimane style of black and white attitude and honor all things Los Angeles and its new noir. Style wise I wont linger long, but James killing it in the Kern by Ugg, perfect for when the weather drops and the streets become a slushy mess these boots won’t hold you back.

Off the Grid



I have facts to disprove:

1. I am considered a redhead and hence am told I do not tan. This is false. I have short short tan lines thanks to some shorties from Gant Rugger.

2. Summer over. Ok if you live in New York. Yet here in the Cycladic islands, the midday sun has us on siesta time to avoid heat strokes and headaches. Hellooooo midday naps!

Anyway, I departed from Rome a week or so ago and have been adventuring through the Cycladic islands with my mother, a fearless partner in crime. (Just don’t ask her to jump off a cliff, she has height issues.)

So far, after several borderline puke inducing boat trips, we have covered Paros, Crete, and Milos and in the next couple days a few more.

Legend #2

Legend #1


Right now I’m still working out the kinks to getting my Instagram to push to this blog, but in the meantime, one thing Rome is chalk full of is stylish old men and women and generally just italian people.



We’ve dubbed them “Legends” (you should see the language we use to communicate when one of us has spotted one, its hilarious and awesome). Naturally like the explorers that we are disturbing these men and women would be next to blasphemy.

Anyway to point this isn’t my photograph, but rather a shot of a legend in a book that was flipped open in a store here in Rome that was too cool to pass up. Whatever he’s got, he’s got it locked. I can only hope to be as legendary as this Legend when my time comes.
