Nick Fouquet for LA Confidential

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing famed hat maker Nick Fouquet for Los Angeles Confidential Magazine at his workshop in Venice Beach, CA. Nick, well-known for crafting hats for celebs such as Madonna and Pharrell, was as laid back as they come and wasn’t the least bit camera shy (I guess being a model for Guess helps out in that department).

After the shoot I tried on some of his high-dollar (well worth it) masterpieces and I must say I felt like I went from Gomer Pyle to Steve McQueen in the blink of an eye. Christmas can’t come soon enough for me.
