Jump right in. Yes, go on, jump in and see what you are made of. Or are you scared? Can you swim? Is the water too deep for you?
Ok first of all, these photos were taken in January 2016, in Barcelona and it was an impromptu shoot. The plan was to get to W Barcelona and do a couple of shoots around the pool for a spring campaign I was working on. The minute we got there, I kind of knew I wanted the pool or rather the water in the pool to be an integral part of a shoot. That very moment, I decided that I have to get into the pool fully dressed.
Guessing the reaction I was going to get from the photographer, I kept my plans quiet until the very end. All throughout the previous shoots this idea occupied my mind and the more I thought about it the more it became more than just a shoot to me. The idea became quite symbolic as it would signify where I was in my life.
Now fast forward to the point where I was fully dressed in my suit and standing by the poolside when the photographer (who is now my girlfriend) asked me the question “where are your shoes?”.

Ok here is another super quick post that I have been meaning to share for a while now. I was in Barcelona sometime ago to do precisely this, shoot for the blog. I already shared some articles containing the shoot which can be found here, here and here talking about suits, colour blocking and archietecture.
What I want to do now is to give you a quick summary of the lifestyle I experienced whilst I was there. This trip was not my first to this great city because of this , I already had certain expectations of what to expect and I’m not going to lie to you I set the bar high, very high. Lucky for me all my expectations and wishes were met and even exceeded.
Hello hello hello! Right, I am not going to write a lot in this post as I want you focus on the suit. First of all, I have had a massive debate with at least 5 people regarding the colour of this suit. Suggestions such as Peacock, Teal, Aegean, Blue, Bluegreen and Sapphire have all been tabled and you know what, now am even confused as to what the actual colour is. This is my suit but I am confused about the colour! Crazy right? Well unlike one of the biggest debates last year about the Blue and Black (or white and gold) dress, this suit’s actual colour is not going to bother me one bit.

The first thing that always jumps to my mind when ever someone mentions Barcelona is architecture. In my view, there are a few places in the world comparable to Barcelona as far as architecture is concerned. I may not have travelled the entire world to compare it to Barcelona but for the cities I have been to (and I have been to a good few), have very little if anything on this beautiful city.
