This week Amazon published a press release on their record-breaking holiday season. It’s full of interesting facts and insights about consumer spending this Holiday Season. Oddly enough, instant film was their best seller in the ‘camera’ category.
While film companies have been going out of business this is a really interesting statistic. It shows that film is definitely NOT dead and people still enjoy the nuance of instant cameras. It might be nostalgia or perhaps it’s something more.
Not surprisingly coming in 2nd and 3rd were the GoPro HERO4 and AmazonBasics Head Strap Camera Mount for GoPro.
#tbt to the day I met R2D2 at a #pac photography club event! My understanding was the same club that made this R2 unit also made the one in the #forceawakens it was meticulously done, really incredible work. #r2d2 #starwars
Underwater, in the air, strapped to athletes, in the city, and breathtaking nature. All the beauty, excitement, and adventure life has to offer. GoPro complied some of the best footage from around the world created using their products. It’s a great 5 minute watch. Check it out below.
Please take a minute to vote for my homie and star of our film @luckybsmith as he goes headtohead against Kayne West for GQ’s most fashionable man of the year. Lucky is humble, kind, talented and much more fashionable than Kanye who has shown to be “socially unfashionable” on a number of occasions. If anyone deserves this, it is Lucky. Thank you in advance Link in bio!
Lucky is up against none other than Kanye West for GQ’s Most Stylish Man of 2015. Yes, Kanye has talent, but I can’t stand him for his arrogance and straight up rudeness to others, which in my mind undermines his talent. I also do not think he is even slightly fashionable.
On the other hand, Lucky Blue Smith is about as humble, kind, and generous a person you will ever meet. He has probably had one of the most successful starts to a fashion career in a single year, and will star in the first independent film I am producing, which will show in theaters next year.
Lucky and his family are also my friends.
So with that in mind, please drop what you are doing right now, and vote for Lucky Blue Smith as GQ’s most fashionable man of the year! (I think you can vote multiple times!)
