From a business assignment I shot today. This guy was really cool to work with and I love a success story.

Store owner Michael Malik at the location of  his old store M2M fashion. His store specializes in premium denim brands ($100 and up a pair). The new store, across the street from his old store, has 5500 square feet, compared to his old store which had about 1800 square feet before he expanded it. He will move merchandise from his old store into his new store very soon. Malik has been in the jeans business for five years and credits his success on taking risks.

Hoops and food

Filed under: Uncategorized — erickayne @ 12:32 am

Its been a good week or so. I got to work on a couple of fun assignments. The first one involves food. Sometimes food makes its own picture. Other times, you have to work it really hard and even still, you don’t know what’s going to come out of the oven.
