George Alvin Vlogs | Coming Soon!

It's happening!

I know I've been teasing the idea for a while now, and thanks to you guys motivating me, and Amsterdam being a place that always inspire me, I'm finally giving it a shot!

Let me just say that Youtubers have so much of my respect... it is not an easy thing to do. And it definitely is hard work. Basically for my teaser video (Watch Below), it took me about 8 hours to edit a 30 second clip! Keep in mind that I have never used Final Cut Pro, other than like once or twice in an A/V class in high school. I spent 3-4 days watching tutorials, reading forums, and researching the best software and plug-ins that Youtubers like to use. Then I just put my newfound knowledge to the test and dove right in. Only the best for you guys ;)!

Anyways, why do Vlogs? Well, why not? I like challenges and I think this will be one of my biggest challenges yet. My life is always so all over the place, and I need something that is structured - & I think posting consistently can help give me the stability I need. Or at least a good start in the right direction. Also, I've always had this weird thing awkwardness with directly talk into cameras, so hoping this could help me overcome that.

As for what I'll be posting? Well that's entirely up to you! So make sure you comment here or on my Youtube video and let me know what you wanna see! Also my first video is up next week and I'll be answering any questions you ASK. So ask away. 

Check out the teaser video for my channel below, and make sure you SUBSCRIBE and THUMBS UP if you like it!

Have you ever heard of the saying "When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade" ? Well, when New York City gives you access to a sick penthouse in Tribeca, you do a photoshoot in it... at least that's what I did. It involved halfway drowning in a bathtub that took an hour to fill up, being shirtless in -5 degrees Celsius weather, a wolf fur coat (Sorry PETA), a lot of Pinot Noir, and one of the first photographers to photograph me when I was like 19: Cyle Suesz

Every time we get together we just have a great time and some of my best pictures come out of it. You can check out a shoot from 2012 we've collaborated on HERE

MAJOR LABELS // BLKN CLOTHING x BRIAN LICHTENBERG

BRIAN LICHTENBERG x BLKN CLOTHING x RADICAL BLACK LINE. There's something about New York's district Chelsea that I really enjoy. The energy surrounding it is always addicting, and the views and scenery even more so. I spent one of my last days in the city before traveling back to Amsterdam in my friends studio in the heart of Chelsea. Sadly, due to uncharged batteries it involved to an impromptu photoshoot using a polaroid camera... but hey, I'm a firm believer of everything happening for a reason.

Which happened to turn out for the best. The brands I'm wearing are based around the  effortless chic sensibility that the city is known for. I'm wearing a new collection called BLKN Clothing. They're a new street-style-esque brand that can easily be worn, and perfect for any outing around the city. Their clever abstract designs and in your face slogans made it obvious to pair it with one of my favorite Brian Lichtenberg beanies 'Trippy & Company'. His brand has been worn by A-List celebrities, top models, and fashion icons around the world. Best known for his creative and genius interpretations of the worlds top fashion brand logos. One of his famous being, 'Homies' printed beanies, sweats, and sweatshirts, printed in the font and style of Hermes.
