Nedim came in looking sharp and polished. Nedim is owner and creator of legacy business @nomadicvintagepdx, a handcrafted rug company. Nedim is a weaver who's vibrance and culture show in his craft. Nomadic Vintage is clearly not only a business for him, but a lifestyle. Nedim spoke of his home and stories of weaving with his family, and how it influenced not only the path of his life but his business as well. His beautiful rugs had history behind them. When he explained how some rugs are worn, we had to include it in a shot. Once he stood in front of the camera, I realized right away that he wasn't an amateur. His polished look matched his bold expressions. Every shot was a keeper! Even with our culture of selfies and constant photos, most people don't find themselves in front of a camera very often, so as a photographer it generally takes a minute to let people warm-up; to realize that the camera is just a tool to show everyone who you are in that moment, and to let go and jsut be. But every once in a while, someone steps in front of camera ready to give you everything, and that was Nedim. Fantastic!
