Native is the neighborhood photography blog of acclaimed New York City-based photographer Saul Bauer. A lifelong New Yorker with a penchant for international travel, Saul’s style is best described as architectural portraiture. He just calls himself a street photographer.
Armed only with his trusty Canon Mark III and a variety of lenses, Saul has earned a place among New York’s most respected photographers.
The fact that you found this blog means that we have something in common. A common interest in style.
I have been interested in style for as long as I can remember. Men having an interest in style is not something that seems to be cultivated any more. In fact, it feels more like it is discouraged.
If having opinions on mixing colors and textures is strange, then I am strange, unremorsefully so.
Who is Jett Style?
I am a (very) late 30 something professional working in financial services. That is my world. It is a world filled with many ill-fitting blue suits, baggy white shirts and old unpolished square toed shoes. Mine is a world where style allows me to stand out.
Style has become part of my personal brand. It’s a tool to communicate professionalism, attention to detail, and, perhaps most importantly, confidence.
My style evolves, but it remains uniquely mine. It is influenced, but not driven by, trends. Is that okay? Damned if I know, but it is my way.
So, what shall we do here, together?
I don’t know it all yet, but what I do know is that I will write about style and opinions, share pictures, ask and answer questions (some rhetorical some genuine) and connect with others with the same interests.
I also saw a gap in the market. I have seen blogs focused on trends and blogs focused on the super high end that reflect a style that I would say is more formal than my own. I have not seen a blog focused on the youthful professional aesthetic that mixes some high-end with more affordable clothing to achieve a polished look that does not break the bank.
There is one thing that I will not share. You will not see my face on this blog. Never! Why? Because I could be anyone. That is sort of the whole point of Jett Style. There is nothing that I can teach based on what my face looks like. Body type and face shape may impact the style you choose but what my face (or your face) looks like is unimportant. I want everyone to be able to associate with the concepts and images that are shared here; so, I will be taking the “look of my face” out of the equation.
I am excited, so let’s get started
