Faces of Frank 151 – DC Chiefs

The good people at Frank 151 asked me to do some product gifting of their DC Chiefs fitted.  Having repped the brand since issue #1 I was of course down to support.

So I invited a gang of friends, fam, and a who’s who of  DC’s most influential to pick up product and chill at Black Byrd.  The result was an ill time with me taking some quick snaps using my cell and then running them through some filters so the pics didn’t look like bad photos taken with a cell phone.

Shouts to everyone that came and the staff at Black Byrd for letting me do an impromptu promo session.  For more pics click Read the rest of this entry
