San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington DC.
Our founder and photographer, Ayhan Kimsesizcan spent the last three days traveling across the country, from city to city, for new store openings and trade shows. We sat down with him, post-travel, to ask a few questions...
Q: Out of the three cities you visited, what was your favorite, and why?
A: San Francisco! I like cities with an urban culture and a unique lifestyle. The architecture and people in San Francisco are very diverse. Plus, you can ride a bike almost anywhere in the city, and the weather is beautiful year-round!
Q: What are your travel essentials?
A: I like to travel light, and I always bring my camera equipment along. Since I primarily shoot city scenes, I dont need any lighting equipment. I only had my Leica X1 with me for the entire trip.
Q: Is traveling a source of inspiration for your photographs?
A: I mostly travel for work, but carrying a camera definitely makes all of my trips more fun. I am a Sagittarius, so traveling is just a necessity for me. I see, think and feel better when I am moving around. The effects of this perpetual movement typically translates into my photographs.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why?
A: I would like to travel to Brazil this summer. Its an amazing country with a very interesting culture. The World Cup will be held in Brazil this year, so it would be amazing to be there for that!
