Chucks&Cameras: Jonn Nubian

A few days into NY Fashion Week and I found myself documenting fashion shows sponsored by Monster Products (Check some of photos on their Facebook). During my time shooting I kept running into a certain individual full of his own unique style. On the third day, fate had it that we both had time to spare between fashion shows and he was rocking a dope outfit fitted with some unreleased Chucks. Naturally we spoke on our love for Converse as a whole (I now need to check out the Converse store in Boston and get a custom pair!!) and was able to get a few quick photos during our conversation.


Jonn Nubian, the Managing Editor at YRB Magazine. YRB,short for Yellow Rat Bastard, is associated with the flagship stores in Soho, Brooklyn, & France. Starting with Marc Ecko, over time the magazine has evolved to a premiere platform to deliver everything pop culture. YRB has 103 dual covers who gave stars Alicia Keys, Channing Tatum, Katy Perry, and even Kim Kardashian’s their first cover opportunities.


Outside of YRB, Jonn is a Professional Adventurer. Coining the term from comic books; you never seen Wolverine, Spider-Man or any other super hero in the Marvel Universe reveal their true occupation. They were all Professional Adventurers. Jonn comes from a more technical, digital and media background. Out of school, he worked on multiple movies with Spike Lee, built websites for Sean Combs and much more.

Beautiful moments in life inspire me. That surreal moment taking place within my reality. Reading about other photographers, i came across a very similar thought from Mario Moreno.

“Inspiration is everywhere around us and wherever you look you will see an image worth capturing. Photography is a wonderful way of sharing your feelings and experiences with people and this is what I like about photography. I pursue the ‘Perfect Moment’, capture it and share it. This is my goal.”

I feel a certain emotion with every photograph I capture. A sense of WOW, “this is really amazing and I am glad to be apart of this.” From music concerts, events, to some of fashion’s biggest shows. I am happy to share my point of view with the world.

Starting out carrying a camera just to capture day to day moments in my life. My photography transpired by the more my life evolved. Photography is not a job for me but a pictorial of my life story.

As my career and life continue to grow, I hope you enjoy my adventure!
