A chat with Scott Schuman

by Lee Oliveira on February 22, 2011

I was looking forward to meeting some great photographers during the Fashion Week in New York and photograph them for a change? Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist was one of them.

After the Michael Kors show, I had the chance to photograph and chat with him. A real gentleman.

Thanks Scott, great meeting you.

I love his gloves and shoes, and what a fun opportunity! Sounds like he is a really nice man too! I’m also quite envious of that amazing camera he has in his hand. :) One observation, his coat and pants look huge on him, no? Perhaps he is just shorter side with broad shoulders, but his coat seems to swallow him whole! :) By the way, is that you on the top right corner of your blog?? What a great photo and great tshirt, I love it!

Kisses from Rome my friend! xoxoxo

What a great opportunity! I met Garance last year and got a chance to chat (and take a few random pics) of her. She was truly sweet and very very humble. I only saw Scott briefly at a book signing at Colette. I’m sure he could tell a tale or two…
