I shot this Visionary Series during the heart of January on a gloomy day. Magically, during our first shoot the sun broke through the clouds for a couple of hours. It was like the sun wanted to make an exclusive visit to Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn just for this 1800® Tequila shoot.
The winter breeze was comforting, and with just a cardigan on it didn’t bother me at all. It was the picture perfect scene, gazing off my roof top and sipping 1800® Tequila in the twilight. Yards are a rare find in the city, which is why I love to spend a lot of time on my roof. When you think about it, roofs are pretty much a New York lawn … minus the mowing and watering. Sure, parks are great, but it’s nice to just hop up a few stairs and be outside in your own “private” area. I’m lucky enough to have an awesome view of Brooklyn which I try to take full advantage of and get inspiration from. There’s no place like home!
1800® Tequila inspired me to choose four unique settings to shoot in, each a staple of my New York life. I never imagined that these settings would perfectly symbolize and capture the intensity, uniqueness and spirit of this tequila.
I thoroughly enjoyed sampling all four of the 1800® Tequila products. With a variety of flavors and mixes, it can be hard to choose a favorite. I particularly enjoyed the 1800® Coconut and 1800® Añejo. The 1800® Coconut infused tequila has a slightly sweet and tropical taste which tastes great mixed with fruit juice. The 1800® Añejo batch has a spicy finish which makes it perfect for sipping.
1800® Tequila is the drink that complements the man of today on his path to success, making it perfect for winter days on the roof or a night out in the city. Thank you @1800Tequila for this opportunity. Keep it locked!
