Experienced models turned fashion photographers often know what they are doing when they are capturing great shots. They have a unique idea of how beauty and fashion is to be portrayed. Rhode Island Tasha Bleu is a model turned self-taught fashion photographer who knows how to work the lens on her camera. She focuses on contemporary street wear culture, high fashion editorials, and industry events. Her concepts are edgy and futuristic. The styling, specifically with avant-garde, is very chic and innovative. Bleu founded her own photography company, Treu Bleu Imagery in January 2010 and has already landed work on BET’s Rip the Runway, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and Africa Week. In addition, she worked with brands around the world that includes Kayobi Clothing UK, MYOB Japan, Stevie Boi Eyewear, David David, Boy Meets Girl USA, and more. Her work has appeared in fashion on/offline magazines that includes Elle, Bleu, Hypebeast and Convention. Bleu’s photos take you into another century. You are deeply in a trance by the photo concepts that will leave you wanting an encore. As her motto goes, “to thine own self be treu”.
If you don’t know who Street Etiquette is about, then start learning. I always feel like I am in class whenever I read their style blog. Once again, these guys produced a fantastic editorial entitled “Sartorial Sounds”. The video, shot by Jarett Woo, captured the dangerous lyrics by spoken word artists Joshua Bennet and Joe Kenneth; sweet sounds from singers Jesse Boykins III, Mara Hruby, Theo Martins, and Melo X; and happy educated footwork from Rinaldy Alvarez.

As described on their blog,
“Sartorial Sounds integrates both music and style, two elements embedded in every culture past and present. We think it’s important to remember that everyone is an artist in their own right. And it’s the life experiences we encounter that provoke what we splash on our own blank canvas. We assembled seven individuals to partake in this editorial. The finished product incorporates their individual talents such as spoken word, rapping, singing and tap.”
