Self-Service

Two self portraits from two of Toronto's most fascinating photogs

01.11.2013

I asked two up-and-coming (and rather adorable) Toronto fashion photographers to take self-portraits that embody their work and personal style. I also chatted them up about their dream models, other talents and what inspires them. 




Adam Moco, 26


What do you do?


I’m a free-spirited, happy and energetic person, and as a photographer, I love to get the same out of my subjects.
 

Describe your style of photography in five words or less.


 Clean and polished.
 

Describe your personal style in five words or less.


Boho, artistic, colourful, unique, eclectic.
 

Favourite designers?


Phillip Lim and Etro.
 

The dream model you’d love to shoot?


Female: Tyra Banks. Male: Jake Gyllenhaal.
 

What’s inspiring your photography right now?

My dreams when I sleep. I’ve been jotting down ideas that my subconscious has formed. 
 

Do you like to listen to music on set? If so what?


Absolutely! I find it’s always best to have whomever I’m shooting pick what they want to listen to — it helps them feel more relaxed and get into the shoot. I’ve been loving me some Lana, Aaliyah and Kylie lately.
 

Do you have any talents and passions other than photography?


I love to sew. When you can’t find what you’re looking for, make it! I can also juggle, walk on my hands, and I love making people laugh.
 

What’s next for you?

Going with the flow of life and enjoying what comes my way. I’ve been working on Holt Renfrew’s blog, Holts Muse, so there is always something fun and exciting around the corner. I’m really excited to be a part of the 10X10 Photography Project in June.
 

What are you wearing?

Top: Sheer H&M ladies’ leopard top. Jacket: A little VV Boutique (Value Village) find. Pants: I bought these from Urban Outfitters five years ago and have worn them to destruction. They are the best-fitting jeans I own! Hat: Picked it up at a random hat shop in NYC. Glasses: See, and yes, prescription. Necklaces: Always around my neck is a beautiful one-of-a-kind crystal necklace from my friend Corrine, of Biko, and a crystal with seven stones in the order of the chakras, from Magwood. Watch: Bulova — a gift from my parents when I was 13. Boots: Jeffrey Campbell pony-hair beauties. Also in the photo is Adam’s sweet little baby, Oscar Myer Moco, a shorthair exotic kitten. He loves water, cardboard boxes and travelling.
 

What have you shot for/where can readers see your work? 


Holtsmuse.com. Stay tuned mid-January for a shoot I’m really excited for: fond-magazine.com, second issue.




Danny Garçon, 21


What do you do?

I’m a student, a freelance photographer and a full-time homebody.
 

Describe your style of photography in five words or less.


Dark, subtle, piercing, youth, overdrive.


Describe your personal style in five words or less.


Simple dark tendencies.


Favourite designers?


 Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Hussein Chalayan and Issey Miyake.


The dream model you’d love to shoot?


Male: Adrien Sahores. Female: Wang Xiao.


What’s inspiring you in fashion photography right now?


Jeff Hahn and Matthew Stone — look them up! 
 

Do you like to listen to music on set? If so what?


On set, my music is an overload of Dillon Francis, Lemâitre and Nosaj Thing.
 

Do you have any talents and passions other than photography?


I enjoy scaring people from behind. I also like to pretend that I’m a mutant with superpowers. 
 

What are you wearing?


Coat: CK Collection. Hat: Supreme. Accessories: Givenchy, Monster. Sweater: Hugo Boss. Shoes: Yves Saint Laurent. Jeans: Levi’s.
 

What have you shot for/where can readers see your work?


The most recent publication is with Danny Fernandes for Urban Ink magazine. I’m launching the Danny the Garçon website at some point next year.
For now, garcondanny.tumblr.com, @officialgarcon
