A few months back, I did a vintage inspired wedding shoot at Château St. Ambroise in Montreal with the wonderful Fanny Wong and MUA Kitty Mann, Here are some of the results of that shoot. The enitre shoot was conducted with ambiant light only. So no flash, a high ISO and at times a reflector. Enjoy the results.
In June, I had the priviledge of working with an amazing hair and make-up artist called Tomoko Hidaka and a clothing stylist called Camille Perreault. They managed to work together in order to help me make my vision of an outdoor vintage shoot come to fruition.
A few weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Bobbi from Tarte Nouveau who is a creator of fastenator hats. We thought it would be great to shoot these little hats on models as opposed to doing a catalogue type shoot that would just show case the hats. In using models, we are able to show the public how these hats can be worn.
The day was very long as I live on the south shore of Montreal and Bobbi lives on the North shore, but once we reached our destination, the two models were ready and willing to do and try anything and any location to turn this into something wonderful. We also must not forget Bobbi’s husband who was generous in feeding us both lunch and dinner. He’s the type of guy a girl must hang on to. However, I digress.
If you like what you see please do not hesitate to leave a comment, follow my blog or contact me. As well, If you would like to obtain a wonderful little fastenator hat for yourself, check out Bobbi’s website at: http://www.tarte-nouveau.ca/
A couple weeks ago I had the priviledge to work with two wonderful and amazing people who enabled me to produce some pretty darn good images for my vintage photography series. These amazing people where Tomoko Hidaka a make-up artist who has been in the business for quite a few years and donated her time to my cause. You can check out her work on her website at: http://www.tomokoh.com/tomokoh_makeuphaircreations/Welcome.html and the other amazing person I worked with was Camille Perreault who is a clothing stylist. You can view her work on her website at: http://camillepstyling.carbonmade.com/about.
I also worked with two great models Emilie Benoit and Emily O’Connor and was assisted by En JuLee. All together we made an amazing team.
I am attaching a few images of my Vintage Shoot. These were all done in Montreal near the waters edge. The setting was beautiful and the temperature was equally cooperative (not always the case in our part of the world). The clothing was supplied from H & M with some of the clothing and accessories being vintage pieces provided by myself and Camille. This shoot was inspired by a Vogue shoot that I had run across a while back.
Hope you enjoy the images. I will be posting more in a few days time.
I recently did a lifestyle photoshoot at Plage Ste-Catherine’s Recreo Park. It was a beautiful day, in an idealic setting and I was working with a beautiful, sweet model. Emilie is great to work with and is willing to do what it takes (within reason of course) to get that perfect shot. As you can see, I think we succeded in getting beautiful material to work with. Hope you enjoy and please, feel free to share and leave your comments.
