Creative fashion professionals love using .xyz domains. Luxury menswear designer Sissi Goetze makes her modern collections stand out online with Goetz.xyz, ASOS social media executive Jovel Roystan shares his personal style at JovelRoystan.xyz, and popular fashion influencer Egreis Gjergjani blogs about balancing work with motherhood at StilettoMeUp.xyz. Today’s #WebsiteWednesday is another .xyz adopter from the fashion community who knows how to get the look online: PerryGibson.xyz.
PerryGibson.xyz is the portfolio website of Perry Gibson, a London-based freelance photographer. Perry graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Media and Journalism from the University of the West of England, and now specializes in both film and digital photography. His website showcases his robust portfolio of work, and puts his special talent for fashion and event photography on display.
Perry’s knack for capturing athletic apparel is evident in the brands he’s worked with. His website features two projects with top sportswear label Adidas. He’s captured lively event images for Adidas x Stormzy, where his photos capture the excitement in the eyes of event-goers with the unveiling of the tracksuit collaboration with the popular English rapper. He also skillfully photographed the opening of the Adidas London flagship store, utilizing the event’s neon lighting to create movement in the shots. From his website, it’s clear that catalogue fashion photography is another one of his strengths. His portfolio includes modern streetwear photos he’s taken for popular London footwear retailer Tower London, and cool behind-the-scenes shots he did for the Converse One Star campaign.
Another impressive part of his fashion photography portfolio is street style photography, or documenting the outfits of real people in urban environments. He has an entire section of his website devoted to the stylish show-goers of London Fashion Week, dating back to 2018. His eye for style is evident with the polished snaps he took at the 2019 Women’s Autumn/Winter shows. Anna Wintour, the Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, is among the many chic attendees he captured. Most recently, he skillfully captured the urban sportswear style that was evident at the 2020 Men’s Autumn/Winter shows. Filled with designer sneaker and statement-making puffer jackets, his shots document the streetwear trend happening in London.
Perry also shares personal images on his website as well, giving the visitor a sense of his character and personality. A section entitled Photo Diary shares vibrant images from the places he’s visited. He also shared a collection of powerful images from a Black Lives Matter protest at London parliament on July 6, 2020.
Through his .xyz website, Perry is able to share his wide range of photos in a format that he has total control over. He alone chooses how his photos are displayed and used; two privileges he would have had to sacrifice using a photo hosting service instead of his own website. Although he is based in London, Perry states that he is available for assignment worldwide, and PerryGibson.xyz helps him to reach that global audience.
