What were some of the most challenging photography techniques to master?

Who or what are you biggest influencers? Do you look up to a certain photographer?
When you’re shooting a campaign, how do you make sure to embody the company brand?

Tell us your favorite BOXFOX product.. We know it’s hard to choose JUST one!
SK // LISTEN - a gifted hair product is a gift from above. I absolutely loved receiving the birthday box from my best friend because the DryBar Hold Me clips take my hair to the next level when drying because they are so easy to style with and they don't yank my lucious locks out.
If you could make a BOXFOX for your best friend, what card would you choose?
SK // I'd have to go with the Hustle card because whether I'm just sending a friend a birthday box or just thanking a client with a special built box I feel a small note to keep the "hustle" is always a motivating reminder.
