I wanted to share a quick teaser post from a photo shoot back in 2016. It’s not very often I have time to actually execute some of my personal photo concepts. It’s not always an issue of time but many of my visions require a larger budget than I can afford. This shot was from a concept that fortunately didn’t cost too much to create, even though we built the whole set in studio
On the rarest of occasions, I get asked to shoot a wedding. Friends come to me and ask “I know you don’t normally do weddings… but, will you shoot ours?”. In most cases, I say yes but, I also explain that I won’t be the typical wedding photographer they might be looking for. Usually the response is “We don’t care, we love your work and we just want to work with you!” The conversation I had with Jessie and Crystal prior to their wedding was quite similar to that.
Back again for round two of sponsoring Guelph Pride 2016! We had so much fun last year and have been very excited all year long for the return of the event! There are a lot of new events being hosted this year and tons of new volunteers. Every year the Pride Council works really hard to bring the community a wide variety of events that everyone can attend.
Every now and then I get some spare time to work on some small concepts. Most of my work tends to be client based but I originally started taking photos based on my passion to create. It has been a long time since I worked on a project developed by me. One day, towards the end of 2015, I decided I wanted to change that and work on some more personal projects for 2016.
It’s been 2 weeks since GAIN Music hosted their annual festival, this year being titled as “GAIN Music Arts Festival”. This was the 6th time they have hosted this festival and every year it continues to grow. This year Nik and his business partner Bilay, took on the ambitious task of filling many of downtown Guelph’s bars, and Cafés with live entertainment, comedy, and art.
Back in February, I was booked for a boudoir shoot with an old co-worker. She had lost a lot of weight and was very proud and excited to get some photographs done of her feeling her best. I feel like a lot of people don’t always understand Boudoir Photography. Most seem to think it’s something you only do for your partner at Valentines Day, Anniversary or Wedding. But, in my opinion, Boudoir Photography is first meant for you!
We had the pleasure of documenting Common Deer (the band) 1st day of recording at Revolution Recording in Toronto, ON. The band reached out to us to do some behind the scenes video coverage as they began their journey recording their 1st full-length album. It was an incredible experience for us all! First time for me working in Revolution Recordings and honestly is one of the most beautiful recording studios I have ever set foot in.
No more teasers for this shoot, here is the final product of a recent photo shoot with Model: Jessica Rose and HMUA: Rachel Jones – B Pretty Hair & Make-up Artist. This photo shoot was put together as a part of revamping the portfolio. One of my favorite things to photograph is faces. There is so much about them that interests me, the curves, the lips, the overall structure and the stories behind the eyes.
