Dan Folger, a 21 year old photographer from Pittsburgh, P.A., took the musical photography world by storm after becoming the official photographer for rapper Wiz Khalifa, another Pittsburgh native. After touring with Wiz, Folger started to expand his clientele to artists such as Mac Miller, Rick Ross, and fashion icon Ian Connor. His art has been a huge inspiration to me because he photographs some of my favorite musicians. I follow him on social media, and the lifestyle that he gets to live because of his profession drives me to become what he is today.
Currently, Folger is focusing on his newly founded business, GLD. The business specializes in making jewelry, but also has an impressive clothing line. Watching Folger juggle these two professions has also been an inspiration to me because I am currently working on designing clothing for collection that I hope to release within a year.
