9 mins with @stevesweatpants
Posted on April 24 2015
We quickly caught up with our guy Steve "Stevesweatpants" Irby to find out exactly what the hell is happening on his end... Who in the hell are you and what the hell do you do? Drum roll please, I am Steven John Irby aka @stevesweatpants on the Internet. I am the co-founder and editor-at-large for street dreams magazine/ S.D.V.A (street dreams visual agency) and a photographer. Also I love horseback rides on the beach. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Turn on Sportscenter, put it on mute, then turn on some music. Daily essential that you carry with you and why. Daily is an Unlimited Metrocard with an extra metro because it always disappears in your pocket. Chapstick because ashy lips is not a good look. My camera because it’s attached to my body—I don't really have a choice. A positive attitude, even though it's not tangible it still should be with you daily. Guilty pleasure that many may not know…Until now : ) I hate cheese but I love cheesecake. Especially with cherries, it's way too lit. Oh and I'm absolutely obsessed with comic books, graphic novels and dorky video games: One word to describe yourself. Comfortable. What inspires you to keep going everyday? Life is so short. I've experienced a lot of ups and downs with family and friends. I think it's very important to make the most of it and do what truly makes you happy. I want to make my family proud of what I've done and give other people a shot of doing what they love to do. #Goals Ride a Segway from Bed Stuy to Central Park is on the top of the list right now. Changing the game for photography in our demographic. Make the most incredible peanut butter jelly sandwich ever.
