I was in Tuscany back in November. I cant believe its taken me this long to start sharing it. I'm typically relatively fast when it comes to sharing travel stuff. I went with Lucini Italia to Tuscany where we shot olive harvest and the whole olive oil making process. Throw in a couple small castles perched on hillsides and couple cute old Italian men and there ya go. Its as dreamy as it looks in real life.
I adore photographing creatives in their spaces. I know its nothing new but I truly appreciate the artistry that comes along with craftsmanship. Creating things with your hands, devoting the time to master your craft and the quality that comes along with that deeply resonates with me. As I get older I find it more and more important to buy things that are built to last and of the utmost quality.
Will makes beautifully hand-crafted leather bags and belts out of this studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He uses all hand tools and respects the traditonal ways of doing things, no modern machinery to be found. These bags are built to last and only get better with age. It was such a pleasure to capture this man in his element. To learn more about Etwas visit Will's website.
