I first became acquainted with Carter's work four or five months ago via his Instagram. I had just shot some photos up in Venice at the Deus Ex Machina "Raduno Ducati" event, and I was cruising the #caferacer hashtag when I stumbled upon his coffee ring drawings. Fast forward a couple months and I reached out to him to ask if I could shoot him working on a couple pieces.
We met at a local North Park favorite, Coffee and Tea Collective, to get acquainted and it turns out we've got a few mutual friends. After fueling up at C&T we walked over to another great local spot, Gym Standard, to pop in and say hey to shop owner Edwin. Edwin's got a great eye for design and the shop's general aesthetic is awesome so we decided to shoot there. Below are some images from our meeting, a few of which I'm told are going to be used in the upcoming campaign for the launch of the new ASUS smartphone - pretty sweet!
