As a photographer I tend to surf the internet to check out what's going on in the photography world. During a few of my surfing ventures I frequently ran into a beautiful beings. K.A. just so happens to be one of them. Coming home from work one day I saw him on the train with his mom. I know I knew the face, I just didn't remember his name or exactly where I knew his face from. I mustered up the courage to approach him on the train, with no luck due to me not remembering his name. I came home and searched the sites I frequent and found him. We conversed via text and emails for about a month or two and finally had a shoot. It was definitely a pleasure working with him. I think he's walking art himself. I was fortunate to capture it.
