Back in early June I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for one of our local magazines – Sewickley Living. They tasked me with shooting the Sewickley Shoe Repair shop run some of the nicest shop owners I’ve ever met, Carla and Mario Ulizzi. When I walked into the store and introduced myself, Mario walked me to the back of his shop and took me through his process by shining my shoes! I was amazed by all of the old machinery. From the buffers and scrapers to the stitchers. Mario not only has a talent for his trade, he’s one of the most passionate people I’ve met in years!
I’m incredibly grateful for the experience!
