NO DAYS OFF: RON
Our No Days Off series highlights creatives and boundary pushers by showing how they spend their day. Next up, contemporary streetwear blogger Ron Harris.
1 - WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
Honestly, I’m all over the place lol. I’m trying to be better organized but usually my typical day includes an early morning workout to get into the go-getter mindset. I usually have a campaign or pictures due so the rest of the day includes cooking up ideas, shooting, going back home to edit and repeat.
2 - WHAT ARE SOME [PROFESSIONAL] MILESTONES THAT YOU'RE EXCITED ABOUT HITTING IN 2020?
I would love to just get better at my craft and venture into video more.
I’m currently working on my YouTube studio as I just want to post consistent videos and just overall build my brand more because pictures on Instagram only go so far.
3 - WHAT DRIVES YOU / YOUR WORK? [PURPOSE]
Honestly,I have a small team of friends that do the same work as me and their accomplishments inspire me, But when it all comes down to it, people reaching out to work with me inspires me, whenever I get an email notification, that inspires me lol. Getting more work inspires me. It’s just an amazing feeling knowing others appreciate your work.
4 - LIFE DEMANDS PERFORMANCE. IN WHAT WAYS WERE YOU PUSHED OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE [WITH YOUR WORK]?
See, I’m from Philadelphia. Here it took people a little longer to be accepting of people that are “different”. Just feeling comfortable enough to take pictures in front of people who were not accepting of it at the time or even just wear what I wanted to all played a role.
5 - WE AT ALPHA UNDERSTAND THAT MINDSET IS A HUGE FACTOR AND OFTEN AN ADVANTAGE IN REACHING SUCCESS. HOW DO YOU [MENTALLY] PREPARE FOR THE UNIQUE CHALLENGES YOUR WORK PRESENTS?
I get distracted easily and sometimes get discouraged if I don’t see results fast as I would like but early morning workouts, with some trap music playing honestly works for me lol. It keeps me sane, helps me push through and just allows me to reflect on the progress I have made.
ABOUT PERSONAL STYLE:
1 - HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF WEARING THIS PIECE / THESE PIECES?
One of the pieces I wore a black reflector jacket. That piece stuck out to me out of everything. It had a nice tactical feel to it. I would love to throw on some fear of god’s with it and maybe some tactical pants as well. The jacket was absolute amazing.
2 - WOULD YOU SAY YOUR STYLE MATCHES YOUR AMBITION?
Lol, honestly no. I love all styles so it’s hard to match that to my ambition.
3 - HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Sometimes laid pack, often times crazy. I like to keep my style in the middle between hype and casual. I’m a sucker for tactical clothing.
4 - THE SS20 PT COLLECTION WAS BORN OF PURPOSE. WHAT KIND OF PURPOSE DOES IT SERVE FOR YOUR STYLE / YOUR WORK?
Just gives that look and feeling of being a badass or a boss. Simple as that.
