SARTORIAL SERIES ENTRY #2 - “THE VISIONARY”.
-A little about yourself.
My name is Cedric Quick. I’ve been called an extremist because of my passion to be number 1 and give all I have to whatever my interest is at the time. The problem is those interests change and I’ve become a jack of all trade. I’m still searching for the one thing that I will master and never shy away from.
I’m a loving father and husband that enjoys the journeys and lessons of life.  I believe everyday is an opportunity to get better and make my family proud.  FOE

-What pushed you to start growing and maintaining your beard? 
First off, my father rocked the beard.  I’ve always wanted to let it grow and see where it goes, but I was concerned about how I would be perceived.  Then I said f**k it…
-Who inspires you to be great?
Again, my family and friends inspire me to be and do more than anyone ever imagined. 

-What advice can you give anyone who’s trying to grow or keep their beard healthy? 
Have favorable genetics, stop putting blades to it, and “Mane The F*** UP”

-What’s one quote that you live by daily? 
"Be yourself  #nuffsaid"

Another personal favorite quote:  “Aint no fun when the rabbit got the gun”

"Sartorial" series entry #1: "The Wolf of Wall street".  

-Tell me a little about yourself. 


My name is Thomas Yolain Jr, I’m a 24 year old menswear addict currently living in Baltimore. I own a blog called The Magical Theory (www.themagicaltheory.com).

-What inspired you to start taking fashion seriously? 

Hmmm that’s a tough question. I believe in an old saying, “You never know who you’re going to meet out there.” It was my last semester of college when I started doing research and presentations for my classes which prompted me to start dressing up. Furthermore, a few roommates of mine used to dressed up, so they influenced my decision to start taking fashion serious. 

-Who are your style influences (people you look up to)? 

I looked up to a lot of folks first my dad, and a few Instagrammers; @validemeanor @casketsharp @samuelpyo @sartoriomerta @jasonchew_ @that_dapper_chap @onedapperstreet @p__bienaime @veeceecheng @mr_innis @afrikingi @fufunsoup @fine_pekin @manlydavid85 @manlycollections @flawson_ 
@blakescott_ 

-What are your goals in life? 

My goals is to become the best person and most importantly help influence society as a whole.

-Finally, what is one word of advice you can give anyone about how to succeed in life? 

Just put God first in whatever you’re doing. Surround yourself with positive and honest folks. Do things that you love and motivates you. Remember, “You’re the star player, if you don’t shine nobody else should will.”

Thomas is a very ambitious young man, who has a goal in life. His dream is to retire by the age of 39 and establish himself as a very successful business entrepreneur.

Glad to see you giving credit to those who you've supported and have supported you from the jump. Shows amazing character, I'm very happy for you and your friends progression as photographers! Holding it down for the DMV, you guys inspire me so much.
Me:

Well ykno I’ve gotta give credit where credit is due lol including you. I can honestly say I’ve seen alot of growth in your photography as well. The DMV is full of a lot of potential & I just wanna make sure that we all are able to prosper

Much love to…

First & foremost, I’d like to give a big shoutout to all the photographers across the world. With your hands, your equipment & your creative vision, you all have been granting us timeless pieces of art that will forever be remembered in the history of the world. For that, much love & props are given to you all

I’ve recently come across a lot of my old work vs my new photography portfolio (that of which you can view over at my 2nd page: DMacTheRealist Photography) & just as if you would with your own craft, I instantly thought to myself “Man…I came a LONG way lol” It’s funny how we found most of our old work to be the greatest thing in the world at the time. But little did we know that it was only paving the way for more improvement; further mastering our talents & honing our skills. However, this isn’t about me…
This post is to give credit to two specific photographers who have not only came a long way in their craft as well, but have also been making a pretty good name for themselves in the world & that I’m honored to have been able to get to know.

First, special shoutout to my brother raatfashion | visuals-by-raatI’ve never been more proud to see so much growth in one human being. Ever since goofing off back in high school, doing every possible thing other than paying attention in class, we’ve always challenged ourselves artistically; we made it a goal to push ourselves to be pinnacles of creative greatness. Of course, being that art is subjective, what may be viewed as great to one person may be viewed as strange or simple to another. Art in itself will forever be controversial. But to see someone fearlessly break into the art world fully equipped with fashion in one hand, photography in the other, all combined together with a strong will to succeed, that is something that you can’t say isn’t impressive. I’m always seeing Roland constantly researching ways to improve, always ready to come out with a project so innovative, that you have no other choice but to give the man props.
So to that, keep on shooting bro. Im proud of you

Second, I’d like to shoutout creativefamee | creativefamephoto. Man…where do I start? lol Ever since I’ve first come across your work, I was blown away. I had no doubt in your creative growth. She’s one of the few people that I know that has no problem reaching out to you for your critiques; she truly values the audience’s opinions to ensure that she continues to grow. Ambition? The Hustler’s Mentality. She knows exactly what she needs to do to get where she needs to be in life & I’ll bet ANY amount of money that no one can divert her from her path. I can honestly say that it’s going to be one hell of a day whenever we finally collab on that photoshoot! (spoiler)
Simply put, you have a bright future & you’re not hesitating to let the world know. This is what keeps us photographers going, when we surround ourselves with positive individuals who continue to shoot for the stars.

Hopefully this lengthy post didn’t make you scroll past. Because if you haven’t seen their work or heard of their names yet, it’s about time you do that.
