In his line of work, local photographer Stephen Obisanya depends on utility. From his gear to his fashion choices, function is key. This Armani Exchange chronograph is the perfect complement to his lifestyle. So I got him to finally take a break from behind the lens and share his AX style story as we transition into the warmer months. “All day shoots are common, and with meetings in between, I try to strike a balance between professional dress and comfort”, says Stephen. “I love light layers, they keep me comfortable as I go from indoor to outdoor and also act as extra compartments for lenses, caps or filters.” As always, time is of the essence. With Armani Exchange, he’s able to stay on track to make the most of the day. “It’s sturdy but not too bulky. I need to be able to move freely, and go in and out of my bag or pockets without feeling restricted or having it ‘catch’ with every move.”
“For me, style is personal. Every choice you make should speak to who you are and what you do.”
The sleek, minimal design and large face make it attractive and accessible. I know from experience that he wants to worry about only his subject and backdrop. That’s how to get work done. And with Armani Exchange, I think he’s found the right fit.
