Encountering new challenges always excites me, and with this shoot I was both challenged and humbled by the two man operation run by Peter Parvez. Most of my past shoots typically involve large operations in sizeable venues, but Peter’s tailoring business was quite the opposite - a modest single room office on the 56th floor, where all the magic happened. This posed a challenge for me because big venues mean a variety of B-roll shots and angles that I can use to help illustrate the story. In Peter’s office, I decided to take a different approach and concentrate more on his character and his craft as a tailor. I focused (no pun intended) on details in his suit making process and on his interactions with his clients. It was his first time ever being interviewed, let alone on camera, but I think his personality and music really help tie in the intimate experience that is unique to his business.
