In high school Atif (@atifateeq) fell in love with photography. After college Atif launched the NYC streetwear line, Vane, along with episode 003 guest Eric Poon, while continuing to photograph on the side.
Atif is now a video artist with clients such as DKNY, Naeem Khan and Porsche and as of November 2014 is represented by the Wall Group.
You’ll hear Atif discuss how he turned his passion into his livelihood, the importance of putting yourself out there, and that when all else fails, just take a break.
