Edmonton Boyle Street Renaissance

Boyle Renaissance Surprise Photo Impromptu

My friend and I went down to the Boyle Renaissance in Edmonton for a practice photo session today. I will be having a shoot here in a week for a wedding reception in this venue here at Boyle Street. It's rare to get someone to participate in my projects and I felt great having Lilian here with me today. Lilian enjoys taking photos like many people and she has only shot with iPhones and tiny point and shoot cameras, but this is to proof a great creative mind certainly...

What an amazing photo day with my two dear old friends and the amazing Sara! I met Sara through Dani who is also assisting for me in this photo shoot. Sara is a young lady just finishing up junior high, but already has a contract with a modeling management company. She's had some shoots and agreed to do a shoot with me for learning experience. Today marks the first day of me shooting with assistants, who by the way had no training so extra points to them for being awesome!So here, we have...

Family Portrait Session in Edmonton Strathcona Area

I approached my old time junior high friends personally for a family portrait session on location. I was so excited when I found out that the family were just thinking of getting a family photographer in town =) Kory and Brittney were both friends I knew from junior high. We haven't seen each other in close to 8 years! It was so awesome to get to meet their daughter who I have only seen pictures of on facebook. She is definitely cuter in person! This will mark my first on...

Some wants to preserve the most authentic, candid moments in their point of time with the family, so I thought an "on location" candid portrait session right at...

Another portrait photography day in Edmonton! So Iris and I have been friends for quite some time now, and we would have dinner talks periodically to catch up, but today I've decided to talk her into a photo session. *Evil laughter* Iris has always been a pretty chill person so I already knew she would agree to be in my photos. I'm practicing for an upcoming wedding gig, so finding anyone with no modeling experience would obviously be a no brainer right?  Iris got off work and was dressed in business casual attire, so...

Portrait Session in Edmonton Canola Field

So here in Edmonton, July is finally snow and cold free! There are canola fields in full bloom all over highways in Edmonton right in the city! This is the beginning of my serious journey to get into shooting portraits. I've spent lots of time scouting for locations to do photo sessions and try out loads of different lighting techniques and force myself to survive in harsh lighting conditions too! I'd carry my gears to work to save travel and time. Having looked forward everyday, I shot in the rain, overcast days, gloomy...
