jake davis test shots: sid mashburn

jake davis does great work.  if you’ve never seen his blog, you can check it out here.  every couple of weeks, he posts a “test shot” of someone he admires – which is basically a minute long, slow motion video of said individual set to cool music.  his latest test shot of sid mashburn is his best in my opinion.  i love jake’s description of sid:

from spending the afternoon with sid it’s very clear how much he loves, not just designing clothes, but the people that wear his clothing. and they love him right back. It was nearly impossible to shoot on the bridge behind his store without someone stopping to say, “hello.”

i had the pleasure of meeting sid one time away from his store.  he was meeting with a buddy of mine that i had run into at a coffee shop.  he recognized we were into our conversation and asked what we were talking about.  my friend told him we were grading our fantasy football draft.  sid got real excited and started asking about our teams.  i felt bad for cutting into their meeting time, but sid was legitimately interested.  he’s a genuine dude and jake’s test shot captures his personality perfectly.  thanks for sharing, jake.
