Inspired by his own jet setting lifestyle and moody glam aesthetic, a famous fashion photographer is the new hype on the iPhone. Chiun-kai Shih, better known as Chunky, is a creative director for Condé-Nast’s Vogue and GQ, a fashion world star, and now Chunky is a new Hipstamatic lens rendering glossy luminous and almost cinematic images.

The lens is as unusual as Chunky – being probably the only fashion photographer in the world who shot the Fashion week on an iPhone – with his own lens. Between the big guys with the big cameras Chunky with his iPhone once again was way ahead. Even for GQ Taiwan he shot a spread entirely with his iPhone!

We met Chunky this week in a beautiful sunny New York not only to spend a fantastic day together but to get from him some exclusives, so hot, they haven’t been published anywhere else. He did these images all for Buckler’s 10th Anniversary special, and it was shown at their SoHo Store during Fashion Week—and has never been seen online—so far. Shot at famous interior designer Yabu Pushelberg’s house in NY, the fabulous interior underlines the individuality Chunky Lens adds to every single guy.

He was so crazy about his lens, that he couldn’t stop shooting. He kept doing pics during our lunch and even after he went home he sent us a Chunky-selfportrait wearing his Schwarzrosagold-Berlin-Shirt.

Thanks, Chunky!
